Transfer insider Pete O’Rourke has dropped a Glasgow Rangers transfer update that will surely excite the Ibrox faithful as Giovanni van Bronckhorst aims to bolster his attacking options.
The journalist said: “Obviously, they’re pushing forward looking for a striker because I think the injury to Alfredo Morelos maybe hurt Rangers last season in a number of games when they missed an out-and-out number nine.
“They’ve already sold Cedric Itten this summer, so Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be looking to strengthen, and maybe Colak could be the right trick for Rangers, who obviously know all about him having played against him.”
This news will surely excite supporters, who are desperate to see some new faces arrive at Ibrox.
With one confirmed arrival in John Souttar already this summer, with the potential move for Zak Lovelace not being announced until the start of July, the Dutchman only has five weeks to sign some new players before the new Premiership season begins.
The attacking department needs both depth and quality added to it. The future of Alfredo Morelos remains uncertain, Kemar Roofe is far too injury-prone to sustain a good run in the team and the jury is still out on Fashion Sakala – who turned in some good performances last season but is still too unpredictable.
As such, a move for Colak would appear to be a wise one, as the striker netted 14 league goals while on loan with Malmo last season – two of which came at Ibrox to shatter the club’s Champions League dream in August last year.
The 26-year-old has been capped three times by Croatia and this international experience could be a big bonus for Van Bronckhorst, who needs quality as he aims to wrestle the title back from Celtic.
It could be an interesting transfer window for the manager and the next few weeks will be crucial.
