Italian club side, Cremonese has slapped a £7m price tag on Rangers target Cyriel Dessers.

Rife reports emerged that Dessers was on the list of strikers targeted by the Scottish side this summer alongside Atalanta’s Sam Lammers.

Rangers are reported to have made a significant opening offer according to The Punch as the club has also confirmed the addition of goalkeeper Jack Butland from Manchester United.

However, Cremonese are currently seeking more than the near-£6m fee paid to Genk for the 28-year-old last summer.

It remains to be seen whether the Italian outfit will drop the asking price as they face up to the financial hit of relegation from Serie A.

Dessers scored six goals in 26 top-flight appearances last season.

Capped four times by Nigeria, the forward was previously top scorer in the 2021-22 UEFA Conference League during a highly successful loan spell with Feyenoord. He has also played for Lokeren in Belgium, as well as Dutch sides NAC Breda, FC Utrecht and Heracles.
