Rangers FC right-back James Tavernier has surprisingly come under the limelight with as many as four English Premier League sides interested in him, as per 90min.

The exclusive report claims: “Manchester United are one of four Premier League clubs who have been impressed with Rangers captain James Tavernier, with the 29-year-old right-back now emerging as a viable transfer alternative to Kieran Trippier for the Red Devils.

“Tavernier was rewarded with a new three-year contract at Ibrox as recently as April and he remains more than happy in Glasgow.

But Arsenal, Brighton, Norwich and even Manchester United are taking an interest and could test Rangers’ resolve to keep their skipper ahead of the new season.

“The Scottish champions have been badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic, yielding a £15.9m operating loss for 2019/20, on top of existing annual losses long before the pandemic struck.”

Is James Tavernier heading back to England?

James Tavernier joined Rangers from Wigan in 2015 and in these past six years, the Gers captain has become one of the sides’ biggest assets.

It’s no secret that Manchester United are in need of a new right-back and someone like Tavernier could be the ideal backup to AWB next season.

With Hector Bellerin leaving Arsenal are also in need of a new right-back and unlike Man United, the Gunners can try to lure the Rangers man by offering him regular playing time.

Brighton and Norwich are can also offer him consistent playing time but we don’t think these two sides will be able to compete with Man United or Arsenal(if they are seriously interested).

In an ideal scenario, Rangers will not want to part ways with their club captain after he’s just signed a new deal this year but if either of the four Premier League sides are willing to pay £20-25 million then the Gers won’t be able to look away.

Rangers paid only £225000 to sign him from Wigan and right now he’s valued at £7.20 million. So by selling him at around £20 million, the Scottish side will be able to rope in a huge profit.
