Glasgow Rangers will have to stump up a sizeable fee if they are to land one of their reported attacking targets, with Livingston setting a price tag of £2 million on star forward Lyndon Dykes, according to the Daily Mail.
The 24-year-old is being highly rated and has been touted as a potential addition to Steven Gerrard’s Gers squad.
Rangers are expected to be busy in their pursuit of new players before the new season starts, with attacking reinforcements potentially on the way.
It is believed that the Gers’ manager Gerrard is under increasing pressure after going two seasons without winning a major title at the club.
Therefore, the report further states that the Rangers hierarchy is now trying to persuade two players—Aberdeen star midfielder Lewis Ferguson along with Dykes—to move to Ibrox ahead of the next campaign.
However, it is believed that Rangers are more confident of signing Dykes than Ferguson, largely because of the striker’s contractual situation where he will only have 12 months left on his current deal with the club once the summer transfer window begins.
Dykes joined Livingston FC in May 2019 from Queen of the South FC on a loan deal and later made his move permanent.
Since then, the versatile striker has represented his current club in 33 matches in all competitions where he has managed to score 12 goals and provided 10 assists as well.
Rangers fans are desperate for their club to win silverware and the Glasgow giants will be focused on stopping their local rivals Celtic win their tenth consecutive top-flight title in 2020-21.
