Report - Rangers plot raid for out-of-contract Leicester starlet Gyamfi
Rangers are planning to seal another raid on Premier League outfit Leicester City with a move for right-back Dennis Gyamfi, according to the Daily Record.
The Gers completed a pre-contractual agreement for Foxes full-back Calvin Bassey over the weekend, with the 20-year-old set to link up with Steven Gerrard’s men upon the expiry of his current deal at the King Power Stadium.
And it is understood that Ibrox chiefs are plotting another swoop for his defensive colleague Gyamfi.
The 18-year-old defender is also out of contract on June 30th, and will be available to leave the former Premier League champions in the coming weeks.
The Record suggest that Gerrard has been tracking the precocious talent for 18 months, and even failed with an attempt to snap him up last summer.
But the Gers remain undeterred, and are hopeful that they can secure the player on a similar agreement to the one struck with Bassey in recent days.
They will likely face stiff competition for Gyamfi, however, with Manchester United, Arsenal, and Feyenoord all said to be interested in him.
Would Gyamfi be a good signing for the Gers?
There’s certainly a lot to suggest that he has a big future ahead of him.
For one thing, the calibre of club who are reportedly keen on the full-back is very high, and the fact that Gerrard has been keeping tabs on him for such an extended period of time would suggest that this is not just a case of reactionary opportunism from the Gers.
The youngster is still yet to make his first team bow for the Foxes, but the early signs are that he is a real talent.
Over the course of his Premier League 2 debut earlier this season, he registered a 100% pass completion rate and a 100% duel win ratio, as per Wyscout.
Landing him won’t necessarily be easy, but the fact that Bassey has already agreed to make the move to Ibrox will be cause for cautious optimism that his teammate could also be persuaded.
