Wolves are interested in signing Rangers defender Calvin Bassey in the summer, according to a new transfer report.
The Lowdown: Bassey superb in European showpiece
The Gers were beaten on penalties by Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, but Bassey was immense for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team in Seville.
It now looks as though Bassey could potentially leave Rangers this summer, with interest in his signature emerging.
The Latest: Wolves eye up summer move for Bassey
According to The Daily Record, Wolves are one of the clubs who are keen on signing the Nigerian, although they will face competition from 2022/23 Premier League rivals.
London duo Fulham and Brentford are also mentioned in the conversation, although it would take a ‘club record’ sale from Rangers to prise him away from Ibrox.
The Verdict: He’d be a great addition
For that reason, he is certainly someone that Wolves should consider signing, with his ability to play at both centre-back and left-back also making him a versatile option.
Bassey’s outstanding display in a huge game against Eintracht Frankfurt was proof that he can deliver on the big stage, and with Romain Saiss moving on at the end of the season, he could be a tailor-made replacement at the heart of Bruno Lage’s defence.
