Rangers could be set to raid Leicester City for a second time this summer, according to a report, with Dennis Gyamfi apparently set to follow Calvin Bassey to Ibrox.

According to reports in Ghana, Gers boss Steven Gerrard has had “positive reports” about the teenager from former Celtic Brendan Rodgers and Kolo Toure.

The Dutch teenager left his coaches at Leicester stunned by snubbing a new deal at the King Power Stadium following his promotion to the first-team squad earlier this season – and the Gers could be set to make him Gerrard’s fifth signing of the summer.

The right-back is a free agent after his deal expired on July 1, although Rangers would still need to pay compensation to sign him.

Gyamfi made 11 appearances for Leicester’s youth ranks this season, with nine coming in the U18 Premier League before he decided to move on.

After Matt Polster’s departure to sign for MLS side New England Revolution, Gerrard is short of cover at right-back with Nathan Patterson looking like he is next in line.

Former Foxes team-mate Bassey has made an impressive start to life at Ibrox and scored the equaliser in the 2-1 win over Hamilton yesterday in Rangers’ first action since March.
