Pending the confirmation of Calvin Bassey’s move to Ajax, Kenny Dalglish reckons Glasgow Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst will be heartbroken at losing the Nigeria international.
According to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, Bassey arrived in Amsterdam on Sunday afternoon to undergo medical tests ahead of his transfer to Eredivisie champions.
Ajax have already agreed to pay Scottish Premiership giants, Glasgow Rangers €22m plus €5m add-ons for the versatile defender.
The 22-year-old enjoyed a phenomenal rise to stardom following a number of standout performances in the Europa League.
Despite losing to Frankfurt, Bassey’s display in the Europa League Final earned huge plaudits from fans and pundits across world and put him on the radar of several clubs with a number of Premier League clubs also interested in the Nigerian.
Bassey is on the verge of completing a record-breaking switch to the Netherlands after two years in Glasgow and Dalglish feels van Bronckhorst will be devastated at losing such a key player ahead of the Champions League qualifiers.
