Daily Record readers are being reassured that Ibrox is the likely destination for Ross Barkley.
The former England midfielder has been paid off by Chelsea allowing him to negotiate as a free agent.
There hasn’t been any arrivals at Ibrox since the end of July when Ben Davies and Ridvan Yilmaz were snapped up.
It seems that repaying investor loans are the priority for the Ibrox board but right on cue for their army of readers the Daily Record has good news on the transfer front.
Free agent Ross Barkley is the other option on the table and the latest odds from SkyBet make Gers 5/4 favourites to land him. His former team Everton are second at 6/1 so it seems all the money is on a move to Ibrox.
Alan Nixon notes that the two Premier League clubs who were interested have now abandoned it to pursue other deals. It’s speculated West Ham and his the Toffees were both keen but Aston Villa, who previously had him on loan, may also be in the picture – especially if Douglas Luiz joins Arsenal.
RMC Sport in France meanwhile claim that Nice, who signed Aaron Ramsey and have been linked with a £10m move for Glen Kamara, are considering offering him a deal. Kamara had been tipped as a last-minute target for Nice but it would likely take a mega bid to lure him away with the Finland international viewed as a key man for Van Bronckhorst. Now it seems they are assessing other midfield options.
Using tweets from Nixon and odds compiled by Sky Bet might not be the most reliable sources of news.
With no EPL clubs prepared to go near Aaron Ramsey he moved to Ibrox on deadline day in January, without playing a full 90 minutes he became a legned in Frankfurt.
