It was only a matter of time wasn’t it? No, not Steven Gerrard being linked with his former team mates.
I’m talking about the valuations of the Rangers players being spoken about as Gerrard starts to put a list together of names he wants to bring to the Midlands.
With The Villains looking to avoid relegation you can bet that the billionaire owners will go hell for leather and spend whatever it takes to secure Villa’s Premier League status.
But, just because they have money to burn, doesn’t mean they will. And Record reporter Gannon, must have been smoking something really strong to come up with these valuations.
The picture is difficult to see so here is what Gannon has valued these Rangers stars at:
Joe Aribo – £12m
Ryan Kent – £20m (yes, he was being serious)
Iainis Hagi – £18m (I’m starting to get concerned for his welfare now)
Alfredo Morelos – £12m
Glen Kamara – £15m
Connor Goldson – £2m
Nathan Patterson – £10m (I’ve already dialled an ambulance now)
£89m worth of talent.
Exactly how this figure has been plucked out the air I do not know. £20m for Kent? Why?
£18m for Hagi? How?
The only thing that’s guaranteed here is no on is getting number for Gannon’s dealer.
