Rangers are set to make an improved £2million offer for Brighton centre-back Connor Goldson, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claims that Rangers had a £1.5m bid rejected last week and that they are now likely to go back and offer £500k more in a bid to land one of their early summer targets.
The reports says that Goldson is one of two centre-backs that Steven Gerrard wants as he sets up revamping the Rangers side from the back up.
Goldson, said to be a huge Liverpool fan, wants to talk to Rangers about the move, with Gerrard the catalyst behind his desire to move north of the border.
Football Insider verdict:
Rangers are the busiest club in Britain at the moment. Hot on the heels of news that they’re ‘extremely close’ to a deal for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson, comes this about Goldson. It seems that he’s been identified as one of the two centre-backs Gerrard wants in place for next season, with Martin Skrtel reported to be the other. Goldson is a big improvement on what Rangers have at the moment, even though he only made three Premier League appearances this season. Fans can already see the effect that Gerrard is having, with Goldson said to be a Liverpool fan and extremely keen on working under Gerrard. The team that kicks off the next season will not bear much resemblance to last season’s by the looks of things, but that’s got to be seen as a good thing. Gerrard can keep the very best of the Rangers team and mould the rest in his image with a mixture of loans and permanent signings. Celtic fans will be getting a bit itchy.
