Rangers made aware of selling club's stance on Francis Amuzu

Rangers are facing competition from Premier League outfit Everton for Anderlecht winger Francis Amuzu, who Anderlecht value as worth ‘a fortune’ according to L’Avenir.

Amuzu is a target for a number of clubs in January after some top performances in the Belgian top division, under the guidance of former Man City captain Vincent Kompany as his manager.

With Everton and other clubs showing an interest, Anderlecht have now made their stance on the player clear and don’t want to let him leave.

Rangers recently sent scouts to one of Amuzu’s games and it turns out Everton were there too. According to L’Avenir, they were impressed enough to add him to their transfer list for the upcoming window.

Anderlecht believe the player is worth far more than his £3.6m release clause, so the race for Amuzu is heating all the way up and it’s now seemingly down to the player about where he wants to go next. He has previously revealed he wants to join Rangers.

Jet-heeled

The 22-year-old has been described as ‘quality‘ in the past by current boss Kompany and his performances have earned him plenty of praise.

He has so far scored four goals and registered two assists in just eight starts this season, so it’s no wonder that he is wanted so much.

The clubs interested are keen for exciting, pacey wingers and that is exactly what he can provide them with. He has great one vs one ability on the pitch and is keen to make an impression at a higher level in order to get international recognition.

Everton are unlikely to be able to offer game time than Rangers following the signings of Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend in the summer, so it’s no surprise Ibrox is his ideal destination.
