Rangers reject EPL bid for first-team star after offer 'falls short of £5m valuation'
Rangers have turned down a £2m approach from Watford for left-back Borna Barisic, according to reports.
The English Premier League side are said to have fallen considerably short of the Ibrox side's £5m valuation of the Croatian international signed from NK Osijek for £2m in 2018.
Barisic penned a new contract in January last year until the summer of 2024 and the club are in no mood to sell on the cheap after easing their financial pressures by pocketing a £12m transfer fee for the sale of Nathan Patterson to Everton.
The Scottish Sun report that the Hornets made a follow-up offer that included £1.5 of add-ons for the 29-year-old, which the Scottish champions have also rejected.
The Vicarage Road side have also been linked with Hibs left-back Josh Doig as they look to solve a problem position.
