£5m-rated Rangers signing talk quashed as doubts cast on target reports

Rangers are not in the market for a new left-back as links to Stoke City defender Josh Tymon are quashed by an Ibrox-centric journalist.

Derek Clark works with the Rangers Review and made the claim on Twitter as reports continue regarding reinforcements in the position.

Stoke City star Josh Tymon, who is valued at £5m, is the most extravagant of all the links with the 23-year-old mentioned as a potential option for Rangers.

West Ham youngster Emmanuel Longelo has also been linked as Rangers fans are left guessing regarding the club’s transfer business this summer.

But Derek Clark claims the Ibrox side are not actively looking to sign reinforcements in this position, a stance contrary to claims in the Athletic.

An extensive transfer report had claimed that left-back was amongst four key areas Rangers are looking to improve in this summer.

The report claims that Rangers were assessing left-back options due to a downturn in form and questions surrounding the reliability of Borna Barisic.

Rangers asset Calvin Bassey has also been extensively linked with a move to the Premier League.

As long as both players remain at the club, then Derek Clark believes that this is an area the Light Blues are not actively looking to strengthen.

As a result, it has seen plenty of conjecture regarding the club’s transfer business with an expectation amongst supporters that the squad is strengthened this summer.

But for fans eager to see the club make moves they will need to be patient as the Gers continue to go about their summer business quietly.

Speaking of Calvin Bassey, one of the Rangers left-back’s most prominent suitors have just received a £15m cash boost.
