Rangers: Ibrox side likely to miss out on signing Andreas Skov Olsen

This has been a quiet January transfer window for Rangers and Giovanni van Bronckhorst but sadly, it now looks like the Ibrox club are set to miss out on one of their main targets.

What’s the word?

That’s according to one insider who with the help of transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, was handed an update on the Gers’ pursuit of Andreas Skov Olsen.

Speaking on their Patreon, The 4th official, who worked on breaking the news of Nathan Patterson’s exit, said the following:

“While Rangers do have an interest for Skov Olsen, it is currently not heading anywhere.

Do you think Skov Olsen will join Rangers?

Yes

Yes

No

No

“According to a source inside Bologna, ”nothing at all close with Rangers.

“Also, there has not been any updated bid made by Rangers currently. It will be interesting to see thorough if Rangers ramp up the interest and whether they can match the hefty asking price of Bologna in the coming days.”

Fans fuming

Rangers still top the Premiership table at the moment but adding more bodies to their squad and further firepower is of utmost importance in order to drag themselves across the finish line at the end of the campaign.

Skov Olsen has failed to score in Serie A for Bologna this term but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be a rather special capture for van Bronckhorst and co.

Speaking earlier this month about a proposed swoop for the Denmark international, journalist Josh Bunting said: “I don’t know the details and if it’s true Rangers sign Andreas Skov Olsen then wow, that’s actually groundbreaking for Scottish football.”

Who did Rangers beat in their first game of 2021?

Indeed, it’s easy to see why that’s the case. This is a player capable of producing magical moments, registering a whopping 27 goals and seven assists in 51 outings for Nordsjaelland.

It hasn’t quite happened for him in Italy but when you consider he’s modelled himself on Arjen Robben, the excitement should begin to grow about a potential move.

That’s why it will leave fans who were keen on a deal to happen rather deflated, and potentially even angry that they cannot match the asking price.

As Bunting eludes to, this would be a seriously eye-catching move not just for Rangers, but also Scottish football. The fact their chances of luring him to Ibrox are diminishing should be incredibly disappointing.

AND in other news, Rangers can finally replace Gilmour by signing “phenomenal” 18y/o who “has everything”…
