Rangers are seemingly closing in on their next summer signing as Giovanni van Bronckhorst looks to strengthen his attacking options at Ibrox ahead of next season.
The current PAOK striker hit a brace for ten-man Malmo during his loan spell with the Swedish giants.
In an interview with GiveMeSport, journalist Pete O’Rourke provided the latest on the potential signing, saying: “It looks like he’s got a decent goalscoring record in Greece and he is a Croatia international as well.
“Obviously, it’s a deal Rangers are working very hard to get over the line. They are just trying to conclude a deal with the Greek side.”
There has been a lack of transfer business at Rangers so far this summer and supporters will no doubt be glad to hear that they are closing in on their second official signing, with John Souttar having already joined on a free transfer after agreeing a pre-contract deal to swap Hearts for Ibrox in January.
With Alfredo Morelos’ future at Ibrox still in doubt, signing a new striker should have been a priority for Van Bronckhorst this summer.
Considering Colak’s previous form in the Champions League, he could be the ideal man to bring in ahead of Rangers’ qualifying fixtures in that competition later this month.
The Croatia international has enjoyed fairly prolific spells with the likes of HNK Rijeka (51 goals in 90 games) and Malmo (19 goals in 40 games) in the past. He clearly knows where the back of the net is and would likely fil his boots on a regular basis next season given the amount of chances that Rangers are likely to create.
Therefore, Gers fans will be hoping that their club can complete a deal for Colak as soon as possible, so that he can arrive promptly and have a pre-season at Ibrox before the new campaign starts.
