Rangers must cash in on Calvin Bassey if it allows Gers to keep Ibrox talismen

Rangers star Calvin Bassey has been touted with a Scottish record transfer away from Ibrox this summer – and the Gers need to cash in on the Super Eagles international if it means keeping key trio Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos.

Bassey has become one of the hottest properties in Europe after his stunning recent form saw him catch the eye as Rangers reached the Europa League final, putting in a man-of-the-match performance in Seville as the Gers lost out on penalties to Eintracht Frankfurt.

A host of Premier League clubs have been credited with an interest in the Nigerian and if the offers start rolling in, then Rangers need to give some serious consideration to them.

With uncertainty over the long-term futures of a number of other Ibrox stars, selling Bassey to keep others at the club would make a lot of sense.

Rangers trio a massive part of Gers recent success – and keeping them all would be huge for Gers even if it means losing Calvin Bassey

New contracts for Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos would help put an end to speculation over their futures – with all three entering the final 12 months of their contracts.

If nothing else, it reduces the risk of all three walking away next summer for free and allows Rangers the chance to get something back in the transfer market for three players who have served the club brilliantly.

Losing all three next summer would leave a massive whole in Gio van Bronckhorst’s side that will be hugely difficult – and very expensive – to fill with new faces.

Selling Bassey and using that money to tie all three down would make a lot of sense this summer, even if it means the Gers also need to spend to bring in a new defender to replace the popular star.
