Clement braced to miss out on another transfer target

Phil Clement is on the brink of losing out on top signing target Yusuf Kabadayi to Besiktas.

While the Scottish media have been urging Giovanni van Bronckhorst to sign up James Tavernier and Tom Lawrence it seems that the new Besiktas boss is ready to sign someone that Clement actually wants!

Kabadayi spent last season on loan at Schalke from Bayern Munich, made little impact with Bayern looking for one million euros as the winger enters the final year of his contract.

All the usual hype surrounded the 20-year-old, there were claims that he had been to Scotland to check out the crumbling stadium and state-of-the-art training facilities at Murray Park but the trail has gone quiet over the last two weeks.

On June 10 the Rangers Review reported:

Yusuf Kabadayi is in line to become the fourth arrival of the summer at Ibrox after Philippe Clement continued his Rangers rebuild with the capture of Clinton Nsiala from AC Milan.

The Rangers Review understands that Kabadayi could be the latest piece of the jigsaw for Clement as he looks to add further strength and depth to his squad ahead of the upcoming Champions League qualifiers and the new domestic campaign. Kabadayi emerged through the ranks at Bayern Munich and spent last term on loan in 2. Bundesliga with Schalke 04, where he scored five times in 26 appearances.

He will be allowed to leave Bayern this summer and Rangers are in pole position to secure his signature as Clement targets the 20-year-old forward. Kabadayi is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract at the Allianz Arena.

The Rangers Review is even  more on message than the Daily Record in its succulent lamb pomp.

Connor Barron and Liam Kelly have been signed up since that report was published without a penny coming out of Clement’s war-chest.

Since the reports about Kabadayi surfaced news has emerged that Ibrox won’t be ready for the start of the season resulting in significant losses in matchday income coupled with the costs involved in hiring out a stadium like Murrayfield.

Going into this transfer window the Ibrox club were committed to spending £4.5m on making Mohamed Diomande’s move permanent.

It seems that the hype surrounding new signings is getting more and more far fetched with any more incoming business probably dependent on finding buyers for flops such as Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Ben Davies, Ridvan Yilmaz, Todd Cantwell, Nicky Raskin, Ianis Hagi, Tom Lawrence, Scott Wright, Cyriel Dessers and Rabbi Matondo.

Barron was put up for media duties today but Clement only spoke to his club’s media outlets about his joy at adding Andries Ulderink to his coaching staff.
