An exciting Rangers transfer update has emerged, regarding a player Giovanni van Bronckhorst is keen on bringing to Ibrox this month…
According to Bologna Sports News, via the Daily Record, a decision is imminent from winger Andreas Skov Olsen in regards to where he will be playing his football in the second half of the season.
The report claims that Sampdoria and the Gers are two of his options as he prepares to leave the Serie A side on loan for the next few months, with a final call set to be made in the coming days.
Bologna Sports News have also followed this with another snippet on the Denmark international, claiming that they would also be open to selling him on a permanent basis if the right offer came up. The Italian side would like a fee in the region of £5.8m for his services.
This update will surely leave Rangers fans feeling excited as it appears as though they will know sooner rather than later whether or not he will be playing in Scotland this season.
The initial report indicates that it may be a straight shoot-out between Sampdoria and van Bronckhorst’s side and the former may have the advantage of being in the Serie A, which means that Olsen would remain in a division he knows well and would not need to move countries for the transfer.
However, he may want to try a new adventure and test his skills in the Premiership with Rangers. Fans would be buzzing if he does decide to make the switch to Glasgow as he’d make be an excellent addition to van Bronckhorst’s playing squad.
The attacker has registered two assists in five Serie A starts this season, whilst right-sided Gers duo Scott Wright and Ianis Hagi are both yet to manage a single assist in the Premiership. This suggests that he would come in and provide an extra level of creativity to the team on the right-wing, handing the likes of Kemar Roofe and Alfredo Morelos more service to thrive off in the coming months.
In ten games for Denmark in this year’s World Cup qualifiers, he has produced five goals and three assists for his country whilst averaging an excellent WhoScored rating of 7.39. He has been able to perform at the top level for the Danes and could, therefore, have the quality required to come in at Ibrox and be a hit out wide, which is why fans will be excited by the prospect of him arriving this month.
