Rangers have fired a new £5.6million bid to sign Besiktas left-back Ridvan Yilmaz, according to Gokmen Ozcan.

Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, the Fanatik journalist has shared that the Bears would pay the entire fee in one year, something the Turkish club views as a big positive.

Eintracht Frankfurt were also in the race for Yilmaz, but their offer was waved away after they attempted a long-term payment plan for the “special talent.”

Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, Ozcan shared the latest regarding any possible deal: “Frankfurt offered 6.5 million euros. But with a long-term payment plan.

“Therefore, this transfer didn’t happen. Rangers offered a plan that could pay €6.5 [£5.6m] in one year with bonuses. Beşiktaş looks positive. Rıdvan, National Team player.

“He won 3 trophies in Beşiktaş at the age of 20 and is a special talent.”


This is where our business model is going to work perfectly.

After making a ridiculous amount of profit on Calvin Bassey, over £20million, there is money to spend and Ross Wilson is now using that to his advantage.

He will have known that other clubs were interested in Yilmaz, and has now made sure that his offer not only bettered them, but blew them away.

Selling the likes of Bassey and Joe Aribo, as well as Nathan Patterson last season has left a real war chest behind, and now that is being put to good use.

Yilmaz could be the next new face through the door at Ibrox, and we already cannot wait.

In other Rangers news, the club are under no pressure to sell Glen Kamara this summer.
