Apollon Limassol 'make contact' with Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty - report

The Scottish Sun reports that Apollon Limassol want Kyle Lafferty.
Apollon finished third in the Cypriot First Division in the 2018/19 season, and therefore, will be in next month’s draw for the first qualifying round of the Europa League.

They are also said to be interested in Arnaud Djoum of Hearts.
Furthermore, it’s reported that contact has already been made with Lafferty’s representatives.

Verdict

Despite a promising start, it didn’t work out for Lafferty at Ibrox this season. Six goals in 30 appearances proves that.
The 31-year-old struggled to earn himself a spot in the team, and occasionally, he also failed to make matchday squads.
Firmly behind Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe in the pecking order and with the return of Zak Rudden and Ryan Hardie from loan spells, an exit always looked likely.

A transfer could bring some financial benefits for Rangers, too.

Given the forward is rated at £900k by Transfermarkt, the club should receive a tidy sum from his sale.
Lafferty’s no stranger to playing abroad, either.
He spent the 2012/13 season in Switzerland with FC Sion and mixed it with the likes of Paulo Dybala at Palermo the following season.

With their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign underway, Lafferty should also realise that regular first-team football will improve his chances featuring for Northern Ireland.
