With interest rising in Oldham Athletic youngster George Edmundson, it makes perfect sense that his price-tag is going up too.
Edmundson has been linked with a whole host of clubs in England and Scotland despite finish in the bottom half of League Two with the struggling Latics.
And, according to the Mail, Rangers have already seen a bid turned down for the talented 21-year-old with Oldham determined to make as much money as possible from their prized asset.
But Steven Gerrard and co should be encouraged by reports that Edmundson’s ever-increasing transfer fee has priced out one of their main competitors. According to the Hull Daily Mail, the youngster is now valued at £500,000 – a figure that has put cash-strapped Hull City out of the race.
Money is tight at the KCom Stadium Nigel Adkins’ side are expected to rely upon free agents and short-term loans.
Rangers, in contrast, should have no problem paying half a million for a player who’s impressive form earned him a place in the League Two Team of the Year.
Edmundson could replace Gareth McAuley or Joe Worrall, who will both leave Ibrox this summer.
