Arsenal, Ajax, Manchester United and Brighton are all interested in signing Bassey, as per TheSecretScout.
The Gunners are looking for a new left-back with Kieran Tierney’s injury troubles and Nuno Tavares set to leave.
The Red Devils would likely need to sell both Luke Shaw and Alex Telles to bring him in, having just signed Tyrell Malacia.
Brighton may need a new left-back with Marc Cucurella being strongly linked with a move to Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Ajax have just signed Owen Wijndal, meaning they are now unlikely to firm up their interest in the Nigerian.
Therefore, a move to either Arsenal or Brighton seems the most likely outcome at this stage.
Ryan Taylor reports that he would cost around £25 million.
Rangers keen to encourage an auction for Calvin Bassey. Ajax, who view Nigerian as Lisandro Martínez replacement, currently highest bidders. Brighton have also made an offer. Asking price: £25m but with race hotting up, any sale could surpass that figure. #RangersFC #Ajax #BHAFC
