The Scottish Sun is reporting that Serie A new boys Brescia have had a bid rejected for Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay.

The Italian outfit is said to have a £1m bid rejected for the former Patrick Thistle centre half, with the report suggesting the newly-promoted side want £2m for the Scotsman.

And given Rangers woes at centre half, could they be alerted to the player’s situation?

Whilst there is no official suggestion Rangers want Lindsay, the club is on the hunt for at least two new centre-halves. Joe Worrall has returned to Nottingham Forest whilst Gareth McAuley is unlikely to be offered a new deal.

The saga surrounding George Edmundson shows no signs of slowing down (yet), and Rangers have also been linked to the likes of John Souttar.

The 23-year-old defender has Scottish Premiership experience and he was central to the League One’s side promotion to the Championship last season.

More than that, the highly-rated centre back offers a quality option against Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic. He also surely possesses a higher resale value.

But if Rangers were to be considering the defender, they’ll have plenty of competition.

The Scottish Sun report claims West Brom, Derby, Stoke, Brentford and Middlesbrough are also monitoring Lindsay’s situation.
