According to Football Insider, Glasgow Rangers may need to pay just £500,000 if they want to lure Siriki Dembele to Ibrox.
The Gers are said to be interested in taking the 24-year-old north of the border, but it had previously been reported that Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony was looking for £3m for the forward (Rangers News).
However, it has now been revealed that Ross Wilson and co may only need to pay £500,000 for his services, which represents an 83% reduction.
This could well be an absolute bargain for the Gers. The London native has been in terrific form in League One so far this term, scoring five and providing seven assists in 19 games (Transfermarkt). Throughout his career, he has 23 goals and 28 assists in 138 games – solid numbers that the man called “brilliant” towards the end of 2020 by Posh manager Darren Ferguson can improve upon (Evening Express).
Would you like to sign Siriki Dembele?
There is plenty of interest in his services – Celtic, Nottingham Forest, Wolves, Fulham and Crystal Palace have all been mentioned alongside the Gers. However, the lure of Champions League football, a competition in which Steven Gerrard’s side should be participating in next season as they lead the Premiership by a huge 20 points (BBC), could give the 54-time Scottish champions the edge. It remains to be see what the future holds for Dembele.
