Calvin Bassey is a target for Dutch Champions Ajax Amsterdam in the current transfer window according to reports.
Skysports have confirmed the versatile defender is also wanted by Premier League side Brighton Hove Albion, but Ajax are confident they will impress the 22-year-old to the Johan Cruijff ArenA with the lure of UEFA Champions league football.
Ajax are in the market for Lisandro Martinez’s replacement, who is on the verge of signing for Manchester United and Bassey is said to be the ideal successor.
It is understood Ajax head coach Alfred Schreuder has spoken to Bassey on the phone over a possible move and the Nigerian is keen to join the Ajax project.
Bassey is valued at £20m by Rangers and Ajax could prepare a formal bid for the player in the coming days.
Rangers signed the defender from Leicester City for just £230,000 two years ago – he still has three years on his current contract.
