According to Football Insider, West Ham have enquired about Glasgow Rangers’ Connor Goldson as the Gers aim to give him a new contract.
The Lowdown: Gers eye new Goldson contract
Centre-back Goldson, who moved to Rangers in 2018, has just one year left on his current deal at Ibrox (Transfermarkt).
As such, the Gers are eager to offer him a new deal, and sources say they are confident the defender will put pen to paper on a three-year agreement.
The Latest: West Ham interested
That update comes amidst reports the Hammers are interested in the defender.
The report says the Europa League outfit have enquired about the availability of the former Brighton man.
However, Ibrox sources confirm that negotiations are still ongoing to extend Goldson’s deal after talks stalled earlier this year.
The Verdict: Too important to lose
A number of players will attract interest from other clubs after the Gers won the Premiership last term but, while Steven Gerrard will be eager to keep all of his star players, Goldson is one player he can not do without.
Incredibly, Goldson played every single minute of every single game in every single competition for the Gers last term – that amounted to 56 matches. Much of the Gers’ success was built on their impressive back line – they conceded just 13 Premiership goals (thefishy.co.uk) – and Goldson was at the heart of that.
Will Goldson be at Rangers next season?
The 28-year-old is currently valued at £6.75m (Transfermarkt) – a considerable fee, and one the Gers could stretch if they were looking to sell. However, Goldson is just to important to let go. Whatever they do, they must get him signed to a new contract soon.
