The Lowdown: Barisic leaving?
According to Sky Sports, the Light Blues defender was wanted by clubs in England in the January transfer window, whilst others were also reportedly interested in the Croatia international.
However, with a deal failing to materialise, fresh rumours have once again started to emerge.
The National have claimed that a number of clubs are now looking to make a swoop for the 29-year-old Ibrox ace this summer.
The Latest: Rangers interested in Tymon
According to football.scotland, Rangers are showing an interest in Stoke City defender Josh Tymon, with Barisic potentially leaving Glasgow this summer.
In order to sanction the transfer, it is said that Van Bronckhorst will have to wait until either the Croatian is sold, or if the Gers qualify for the Champions League group stage.
Tymon is said to be valued at around £5m.
The Verdict: Potential Barisic upgrade
With the arrival of Tymon dependent on Barisic’s future at Ibrox, there doesn’t seem much that Van Bronckhorst can do except sit and wait.
The 23-year-old had five goal contributions this season compared to the Croatian’s three, while Tymon also won more tackles, took more shots and made more interceptions than Barisic during 2021/22, as per FBRef.
Will Bassey leave Rangers this summer?
It appears that, should their current left-back depart, Rangers have already identified their preferred replacement in the “quick” Stoke youngster, as his manager Michael O’Neill called him, so Gers fans will be eager to see how this situation turns out over the coming weeks.
