David Moyes and Marcelo Bielsa will both want to strengthen their central defensive ranks at the London Stadium and Elland Road this summer.
And Steven Gerrard will undoubtedly want to keep Goldson at Ibrox.
The Rangers boss raved about the centre-back in February, when speaking to the club’s official Twitter account:
“I think Connor has been extremely consistent, he hasn’t missed a training session is very robust and you can always trust him. Delighted with his form and hope it continues throughout the season.”
But something has to give.
Football Insider claims that Rangers may have to offer the 27-year-old a new contract in order to ward off interest from West Ham and Leeds.
Key player for Steven Gerrard
Goldson joined Rangers from Brighton and Hove Albion for around £3 million in the summer of 2018 (Daily Record).
And he has gone on to be a real hit at Ibrox.
The 6ft 3in centre-back has played 105 games for the Gers, racking up eight goals in the process (Transfermarkt).
Goldson has proven that he is a strong, touch-tackling defender. And he is also a very good man-marker.
Football Insider claims that Rangers might have to offer the defender a new deal if they are to keep him at Ibrox.
And if West Ham or Leeds are to bring the 27-year-old to England, they will have to pay at least £6 million for his services.
Whether either the Hammers or the Whites are prepared to part with that kind of cash for Goldson, however, remains to be seen.
