Rangers: Jerry Yates could be signed for 20% less than reported

Rangers: Jerry Yates could be signed for 20% less than reported -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers could reportedly sign Jerry Yates in the January transfer window for cheaper than first reported.

The Lowdown: Scouts sent

According to The Scottish Sun, the Ibrox outfit were one of 10 clubs who sent scouts to watch the 25-year-old in action as his current club Blackpool beat Preston North End 4-2 in the English Championship last weekend.

The striker scored two goals and set up another for the home team, who reportedly rate him at £5m going into January.

The Latest: Cheaper price?

As per Football Insider, the Tangerines could be tempted to sell Yates for £4m, which is 20% less than the £5m originally reported.

However, they believe that his price tag will rise if he continues to be as prolific in the Championship, with six goals in his last four league matches and eight in total for the campaign so far (Transfermarkt).

Blackpool are ‘braced for offers’ for Yates in January, and Rangers could be one of the clubs to take advantage of the fact that his contract expires in 2024, as the Bloomfield Road outfit risk his value depreciating the further that he eats into his current deal.

The Verdict: No-brainer

To sign a 25-year-old as prolific as Yates for as little as £4m should be a no-brainer for the Light Blues.

While Antonio Colak has hit the ground running at Ibrox, Alfredo Morelos has been linked with a move away; and with only a few months left on the Colombian’s current deal, Rangers will need more firepower if he ends up departing.
