Rangers want to lure a Tottenham target to Ibrox in a spectacular burst after selling Bassey ...

Rangers are looking for Ridvan Yilmaz and are considering a move for the Besiktas star following the sale of Calvin Bassey to Ajax.

Bassey's retirement has been confirmed by Rangers, who have sold him to Dutch finalists Ajax for more than 20 million euros.

Under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Bassey excelled at both centre back and left back, providing a versatile left-sided defender.

Ben Davies has moved from Liverpool as a left-sided centre back, but a new left back will be required as competition for Borna Barisic.

Ross Wilson might now look towards the Turkish market.

Ridvan Yilmaz is the Rangers' desire.

Rangers are contemplating a move to sign Besiktas defender Ridvan Yilmaz, who is attempting to reinvest the Bassey cash, according to the Daily Mail.

Yilmaz is in the final year of his Besiktas deal, and it's expected that he will cost north of 4million if the Rangers want him.

Yilmaz, 21, has advanced through the Besiktas ranks and is now a prominent first-team player for the Turkish side.

Yilmaz has shown his attacking ability exactly what Van Bronckhorst is looking for in 52 Super Lig outings for Besiktas.

Yilmaz isn't the most powerful defender of all time at 5ft 9in tall, but he has exceptional speed and crossing ability.

Rangers may now consider Davies and Yilmaz's replacement Bassey to be a solid business, and will expect Besiktas to be under pressure to sell due to his contract situation.

Tottenham Hotspur were attempting to sign Yilmaz, according to reports from Turkey earlier this year, but they have since signed Ivan Perisic as their new left wing back.

The Tottenham defeat might end up being Rangers', as Van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson are likely to lure Yilmaz to Ibrox in a very exciting agreement.
