The Rangers star has divided opinion but he has transfer interest.

Cyriel Dessers is said to be wanted bv Cagliari as he attracts plenty of attention for a Rangers transfer exit.

Saudi Arabian suitors plus some in Europe were reported in the striker. Now it has been claimed that Serie A side Cagliari are on the case, as Tuttomercato claim Rangers want in the region of £4.2m for Dessers. He left Italy last summer when swapping Cremonese for Ibrox, but now has an option to return to one of Europe’s top five leagues.

Currently, the 29-year-old is the most experience striker boss Philippe Clement has. Cagliari sporting director Nereo Bonato, during the presentation of the new coach Davide Nicola, provided a transfer hint over a deal that is about to be done but there are no indications right now that the move concerns Dessers. He hinted: “Something has been sown and will soon be made official.

“It was necessary to integrate certain roles in the short term. We are on a journey that has taken us from Serie B to safety in Serie A. Now we want to grow. The group will remain, but with some corrections. There must be some exits to allow this growth. We are not at year zero. Our journey continues.”
