Worldwide battle to sign Cyriel Dessers heats up

Cyril Dessers is the subject of a worldwide transfer battle according to Chris Jack.

The star man of the Rangers Review enjoys privileged access inside Ibrox, churning out tales that would make James Traynor in his pomp pause for thought before sending off another eulogy on Dave Murray.

Apparently there is interest from un-named clubs in France, Spain and Saudi Arabia as well as Greek side PAOK who were reported to be in advanced talks on June 14.

The truth is that there is a massive push on among the Scottish media and agents to shift players out of Ibrox in order to dramatically cut the wage bill.

After five players left as free agents there hasn’t been a single departure out of Ibrox.

Towards the end of last season Phil Clement spoke about the squad coming to the end of their cycle- unless there is more money elsewhere the star recruits of Micky Beale and Giovanni van Bronckhorst won’t be moving anywhere with confirmation of that coming on Saturday with the squad that flies to Holland for a training camp.

Trying to drum up interest the Rangers Review claims:

Rangers will look to recoup the £4.5million fee that was shelled out for Cyriel Dessers last summer as the striker attracts interest from Saudi Arabia and a handful of European clubs.

Greek outfit PAOK were last week heavily linked with a move for Dessers just 12 months after he arrived in Glasgow from Cremonese. The Nigerian internationalist scored 22 goals in all competitions for Rangers during what was a tumultuous campaign at Ibrox.

Now the Rangers Review understands that clubs in France and Spain have also registered their interest in Dessers ahead of a potential exit this summer. It is believed the situation is also being closely monitored in Saudi as Dessers considers his options ahead of the new term.

The 29-year-old was one of the headline arrivals of Michael Beale’s shopping spree 12 months ago but endured a difficult start to life in Glasgow.

The arrival of Philippe Clement in October sparked an upturn in his fortunes but Rangers are open to doing business and expect to recoup their outlay as part of a significant rebuild ahead of the big kick-off in the coming weeks.

Open to do business is a coded message for desperate to get off the wage bill- three more years on higher wages than he was getting in Serie A is as big a millstone as Kemar Roofe’s wages were until his deal finally ran out.

The Daily Record has been trying for two months to ship James Tavernier and Connor Goldson to Al Ettifaq even though there is zero interest from Steven Gerrard.

Earlier today it was revealed that Todd Cantwell’s agent had sent a profile of the former Norwich starlet to a random on Instagram when it was meant to go to the manager of Lecce.

With increased costs and reduced income from the closure of Ibrox the mood at the club is getting more and more desperate with the SPFL opener at Hearts one month away.

Ben Davies, Rabbi Matondo, Cyril Dessers, Nicky Raskin and Sam Lammers are the other big earners that the Ibrox money men are keen to get out the club.
