Rangers could form “nightmare” duo with Antoine Semenyo signing

Glasgow Rangers are no doubt plotting potential new recruits ahead of the January transfer window, with manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst seemingly in need of fresh faces in his bid to reverse the Ibrox outfit’s current slump.

One man who has been linked with a move to Glasgow in recent times is Bristol City striker, Antoine Semenyo, with the 22-year-old reportedly set to be the subject of a £5m offer from the Scottish giants amid his current contract uncertainty at Ashton Gate.

The Ghanian – who is in line to feature for his country at the World Cup – has just a matter of months remaining on his existing deal with the Championship outfit, with the Robins believed to be open to a sale in order to recoup a transfer fee for the explosive forward.

The four-cap sensation – who was also rumoured to also be interesting Celtic earlier this year – scored his first international goal during the warm-up clash with Switzerland at the weekend, with that strike proving a continuation of his prolific form at club level in recent times.

That hot streak has seen the exciting talent score four goals in all competitions so far this term, having previously caught the attention as a result of his displays last season, scoring eight times and providing 12 assists in England’s second tier.

A “nightmare to play against” as a result of his speed and strength – according to current boss Nigel Pearson – the Chelsea-born machine could well add another dimension to the Gers’ attack, with the club currently lacking that dynamic, mobile threat in the forward line.

Semenyo’s addition could well help to aid summer signing Antonio Colak, with the Croatia international – who missed out on his nation’s squad for Qatar – having been criticised for his all-round performances of late, with journalist Mark McDougall noting that the 29-year-old “offers very little in the build-up” having been somewhat statuesque in attack.

The deployment of the former Malmo loanee alongside the more lively Bristol gem could well allow the clinical marksman to stick to doing what he does best – scoring goals – having scored 14 goals in just 24 games in all competitions so far this term.

Can you guess this current Rangers star from his career record?

As such, Colak could remain the figurehead of the attack whose main remit is to put the ball in the back of the net, with Van Bronckhorst able to cover up the German-born striker’s other deficiencies by unleashing Semenyo to partner him.

That duo could prove to be a truly mouthwatering and nightmare attacking partnership in the New Year and beyond, with the Light Blues needing to do all they can to get a deal over the line sooner rather than later.
