Barry Ferguson has suggested teams will be looking at six Glasgow Rangers players in particular this summer.
Ferguson discusses Gers transfer plans
Ferguson was speaking to The Go Radio Football Show (via Ibrox News) about what the Gers’ transfer policy will be this coming summer.
He believes the Gers will be looking to hold on to their best players, but suggested Alfredo Morelos, Borna Barisic, Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent, Connor Goldson and Glen Kamara could all attract interest. He said:
“This run in Europe and regaining the league title back, I’m just thinking that the Rangers board may say to the manager, ‘look we’ve got an opportunity to make it into the group stage of the Champions League, let’s try and keep our best players and let’s add to that’.
“I know money talks, if somebody comes in with a ridiculous offer they will need to consider it but I think the Rangers board at this moment in time will fully back Steven Gerrard and allow him to try and keep the ones he wants to keep.
“I think he’ll add some quality to it [the squad] because the best time to strengthen is when you’re on top.
“There are six assets in that Rangers team; Goldson, Barisic, Kamara, Aribo, Kent and Morelos…that’s the six I would probably say teams are looking at.”
Big summer ahead
There is no doubt that that this summer’s transfer window will be an important one for the 55-time Scottish champions. They have a chance of reaching the Champions League group stages next season, which would be a huge achievement for Steven Gerrard and co.
Do you agree with Ferguson?
To do that, they will need to do all they can to hold on to their best players. One consolation if they were to depart could be the potential windfall the Gers would receive as a result. According to The Athletic, those six aforementioned players combined are currently valued at a whopping £80m – a considerable amount for a side like Rangers. It remains to be seen what Ross Wilson and co decide in a few months.
