Report: Tavernier and Waghorn interested in Rangers move, £1m asking price set

Wigan Crowd Giant Shirt

James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn could cost Rangers up to £1m.

According to The Scottish Sun, Wigan duo James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn are interested in signing for Rangers - but the deal could cost £1m.

Having landed Wes Foderingham, Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan already this summer, new Rangers boss Mark Warburton will now turn his attention to other areas of the pitch.

The Scottish Sun report that Rangers are interested in Wigan duo Tavernier and Waghorn as Warburton looks to shape his squad ahead of the new season.

Taverner, 23, is a right back who came up through the ranks with Leeds United and Newcastle United before joining Wigan last summer, whilst 25-year-old striker Waghorn emerged with Sunderland, before spells with Leicester City and now Wigan.

However, the Scottish Sun believe that a deal could be complicated. Whilst both players are allegedly interested in moves to Ibrox this summer, it's also noted that Wigan are not only in no rush to sell the pair, but could demand £1m in a double deal.

Positions of concern?

Rangers allowed two right backs to leave the club this summer, with Sebastien Faure and Richard Foster both departing upon the expiration of their contracts.

Tavernier would certainly help rectify that particular problem, whilst Rangers are also devoid of strikers having let Kris Boyd and Jon Daly leave the club.

Waghorn is far from a prolific goalscorer, but he's a hard worker and can also play out wide. Both players would be valuable signings for Warburton, but the Rangers boss now has to figure out whether the duo are worth a combined £1m.
