Glasgow Rangers transfer target Lyndon Dykes is wanted by an array of clubs and his current side Livingston are happy for him to leave on one condition.
According to Glasgow Times, Livingston head coach Gary Holt has admitted that Dykes could leave in the summer, but only if one of his growing list of suitors meets the club’s asking price. The report claimed that the West Lothian outfit rejected an offer of around £1m from English Championship side Barnsley due to the fact that they want closer to £2m.
They also believe that the Light Blues’ interest in the forward could increase as Jermain Defoe is injured and Alfredo Morelos looks to be on his way out.
The current striker situation is worrying as Morelos has already agreed personal terms with Lille, whilst Defoe is currently out with a hamstring injury. This currently leaves the club with Greg Stewart, who has only scored three goals in the division this campaign, per Transfermarkt.
Dykes could be an ideal option to strengthen the attacking side of Glasgow Rangers and he is showing the potential to be a very good Premiership striker as he made 33 appearances in all competitions for Livingston last season and scored 12 goals whilst supplying 10 assists, per Transfermarkt.
This is not a bad record at all and Steven Gerrard could see this as a good potential deal because the forward already has a proven track record in the Premiership. Plus, with a better quality of player around him at Ibrox, he could be well placed to improve further on his 2019/20 return.
Would you like the club to sign Dykes?
He is also available at a very cheap price, so the ‘Gers could bring him in quite easily and continue to strengthen their squad with other signings, knowing that they should still have a sufficient budget.
