Chris Sutton & Ally McCoist set Rangers price-tag for Ryan Kent
Ally McCoist has insisted that Rangers could sell winger Ryan Kent this summer, but only for an “unbelievable” offer.
The Bears star has been consistently linked with a move back to the Premier League, with Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa with the most interest.
McCoist believes an offer between £25million and £30million could tempt Steven Gerrard into letting go one of his most vital players.
Speaking on BT Sport Scottish Football Extra, the Ibrox icon understood that some offers are too good to turn down in transfer windows.
“It might happen if they get an unbelievable offer. That is the economics of football, we understand that totally,” he said.
“What’s he worth? £25-30million right now. £25-30million for Ryan Kent. He is absolutely vital to Rangers.”
Sutton seemed to agreed when butting in and claiming that it would take a fee in the region of £27million to persuade the Bears to sell.
Now we’re talking.
It would be hard to see Kent leave Ibrox over the summer, but even we would snap your hand off for nearly £30million; that would be phenomenal business.
Ross Wilson has admitted the need to sell a couple of faces each year, and a fee close to that would leave us financially stable and more for many seasons.
The Sun recently claimed that Leeds were preparing a £15million offer for the flying winger, in their third attempt to sign Kent.
Double that, and then we may start talking.
