Former Rangers Boss Keen To Give Ex-Gers Star Transfer Lifeline

Besiktas will soon contact Fenerbahce for the signature of former Rangers star Ryan Kent following a recommendation from ex-Gers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Former Rangers boss Van Bronckhorst has been appointed as the new Besiktas coach this summer and he is keen to bring in some of his own players to the squad.

The Dutch coach is pushing to sign some of his former players at previous clubs and has already made a recommendation to the Besiktas board.

According to Turkish daily Takvim (via Sabah), Van Bronckhorst wants to reunite with his former Rangers star Kent at Besiktas.

The winger was one of the most important players at Rangers when the Dutchman was in charge of the club.

He played a big role in getting Rangers to the final of the Europa League in the 2021/22 season.

Van Bronckhorst has given a glowing recommendation to the Besiktas board and has asked to sign him.

Besiktas are prepared to act on is request and will soon contact Fenerbahce for Kent’s signature.

The winger has been a major disappointment since joining Fenerbahce and scored just once last season for the club.

Rangers Tell Club They Want To Take Defender To Ibrox, Anderlecht Will Also Bid

Rangers and Anderlecht have been in touch with Swedish side Hammarby to inform them they want to buy defender Nathaniel Adjei this summer.

Adjei, a centre-back, has been on loan at French side Lorient and the deal contained a purchase clause in the event that they survived in Ligue 1.

Lorient did not survive and even though they still have the option to buy the 21-year-old defender, they are not expected to use it.

Adjei however may not be back at Hammarby for long as Rangers and Anderlecht want him.

Both clubs have been in touch with Hammarby to inform them of their desire to buy Adjei, according to Swedish daily Expressen.

Rangers and Anderlecht are prepared to put up to £3.7m on the table for the defender, but Hammarby want closer to £5m for the young centre-back.

Opening bids for Adjei are expected to come in soon.

Adjei moved to Sweden with Hammarby’s feeder team in the summer of 2021 and continued his development until making his debut for the senior side a year later.

Rangers Have Not Agreed Deal With Midfielder, Several Clubs Keen

Rangers have not agreed a deal with Aberdeen midfielder Connor Barron and there are several clubs still at the table for the soon-to-be out-of-contract midfielder, according to the Daily Record.

The 21-year-old was a key member of the Aberdeen team last season and ended with four goal contributions in 29 Scottish Premiership matches.

He is nearing the end of his contract though and is set to leave on a free transfer after turning down the chance of an extension.

Rangers have been hot on his heels but so have a number of other clubs.

In the event Barron leaves Scotland, Aberdeen would be entitled to a fee of £500,000 as training compensation.

It would not be valid for a Scottish team such as Rangers, though any decision on compensation would then go to an independent tribunal, which is not expected to make life easy for the Gers.

Barron has not agreed any deal with Rangers or any club and there are several different sides at the table.

He has been linked with clubs south of the border, but would suit Rangers as he would count as a homegrown signing in Europe, something the Gers need to address.
