Brighton have popped up to rival Ajax interest in signing Rangers defender Calvin Bassey this summer, Megasportsarena.com understands.
The 22-year-old left-back who has impressed at Ibrox is also a target for several other Premier League sides.
Bassey was Rangers’ Man of the Match in last season’s Europa League final defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville, and has plenty of suitors.
A move to Netherlands to join Ajax could be the likely destination for the Nigeria international, though, but Brighton are set to scupper the plans of the Amsterdam giants.
The Eredivisie champions are on the verge of selling Argentinian star Lisandro Martinez to Manchester United and Bassey is being looked at as replacement for him.
Erik ten Hag is looking to reunite with the centre-back as part of his rebuild at Old Trafford having worked with him in the Dutch capital.
A deal has been agreed between the clubs, with the Red Devils set to fork out £46million for the 24-year-old.
It means Bassey could head to Netherlands and fill a similar role given he can play at both left-back and centre-back.
