Rangers are reportedly ‘considering a move’ for highly sought-after Bristol City defender Zak Vyner, according to Bristol Live.
Vyner is entering the final year of his deal at the Robins – his contract at Bristol City will expire in the summer of 2024. Due to this, they may be looking to move him on, so they can avoid losing him on a free when the season ends.
Recently, Vyner turned in an excellent performance as the Robins defeated Millwall away from home by a score of 1-0. Vyner was their star defender on the day, keeping the Lions at bay and nullifying their attacking threat on a regular basis.
Who else, besides Rangers, are interested in a move for Bristol City’s Zak Vyner?
Rangers are not the only club who are believed to be in pursuit of Vyner. Southampton and Premier League Luton Town have both registered an interest in the player and have offered him a deal – however, contract talks with both clubs have since stalled. ‘
As such, the door could be open for Rangers to swoop in and complete a transfer while the other two clubs in the race are floundering. With this being said, it is not yet clear as to whether the Gers will be able to offer a contract to Vyner that will match his demands – only time will tell.
Do the Light Blues need another option at centre-back?
Additionally, it is also worth mentioning that Vyner is proficient in more than just one position – while he is a natural centre-half, he can also do an admirable job in both defensive midfield and at right-back.
As such, should Rangers complete a deal for the Robins ace, they would receive a player who can cover several different positions. They would possibly be best served by playing him in defensive midfield, given their distinct lack of quality players in this particular role.
With this being said, the Light Blues are also currently short of options at centre-back, too. Both Leon King and Ben Davies are currently injured – leaving Connor Goldson, John Souttar and Leon Balogun as their only fit centre-halves.
