Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has suggested that Glasgow Rangers target Siriki Dembele is on the transfer list this summer.
The Lowdown: Gers eye Dembele
The Gers have been heavily linked with a move for the winger in recent months, as per Peterborough Today.
Along with the Ibrox club, their fierce rivals Celtic are also said to be in pursuit of the 24-year-old.
The Latest: Dembele on transfer list?
Speaking to Peterborough Today, Ferguson provided an update on the future of one of his star forwards. He said:
“I can’t see us selling anyone before the season starts. Championship clubs have been very quiet in general and we have had no offers for Siriki, not ones that will turn our heads at least.
“Siriki is therefore very much part of my plans. If he trains well he will be in contention to play and he has trained very well so far.
“All the players on the transfer list will be considered for selection while they are still here.”
The Verdict: Worth a punt
Dembele enjoyed a fantastic campaign for Posh last time out as they were promoted to the Championship from League One. In 45 games in all competitions, he scored 12 goals and provided 12 assists, and he has now found the back of the net 29 times throughout his career (Transfermarkt). He has proven himself to be a dangerous talent, and it will come as no surprise that plenty of clubs are interested in signing him.
Would you like to sign Siriki Dembele?
It is said that Peterborough are looking for a multi-million pound offer for Dembele, but it is unclear exactly how much Posh are seeking for him. Still, currently valued at just £1.08m by Transfermarkt, his signature is not likely to be an unattainable one for Rangers. He is worth a punt from Ross Wilson and co.
