According to a report from the Daily Mail, Gillingham could be forced to sell prized asset Jack Tucker as they look to ease their financial woes, and West Ham, Leeds, Celtic and Rangers, Southampton could all be ready to pounce.

The Hammers were linked with a move for the 20-year-old back in January, as were the Whites, the Gers and the Hoops (The Sun).

Gillingham are really struggling financially due to the recent coronavirus-enforced break in action (Daily Mail).

And because of that, it is claimed that the League One outfit could be forced to cash in on Tucker.

Stats

The 20-year-old has played 26 of the Gills’ 33 League One games this season, so he is a regular feature in Steve Evans’ side.

 

In those games, the side from Kent have let in just 22 games, and have only experienced defeat five times.

According to the Sun, Tucker is a classy centre-back. So by that we can assume that he is a ball-playing defender.

It is unclear as to how much the Gills will demand for the young centre-back.

But West Ham, Leeds, Rangers and Celtic will surely consider swooping now it has been made known that Gillingham are ready to sell.

And a bidding war for Tucker would play right into the League One outfit’s hands.
