Rangers demand big money for Leicester reject Bassey

Rangers are demanding big money for young defender Calvin Bassey.

The Daily Mail says Rangers have put a £25m price tag on Bassey amid growing interest from the Premier League.

Aston Villa and West Ham are among the top-flight clubs keen on Bassey, 22.

Rangers are hoping to keep hold of one of the stars of their season, Bassey, who himself is happy at Ibrox and in no rush to move on.

And the Scottish Cup winners will only be willing to let Bassey leave if their big-money valuation is met.

The figure that could persuade Rangers to do business would top their previous record sale of £16m following Nathan Paterson's January move to Everton.

Bassey joined Rangers from Leicester in 2020 for just £230,000 and has shot to prominence this season following a string of standout displays.
