A significant claim has been made regarding Rangers and their pursuit of a new forward this month…
Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed that the Gers are working on a deal to sign Andreas Skov Olsen this month and that they have been keeping tabs on his progress.
It remains to be seen how far along any prospective transfer is, but the reporter believes that the manager and sporting director are both keen to get this move over the line.
He told GIVMESPORT: “Skov Olsen, from Bologna, seems to be the one that Ross Wilson and van Bronckhorst have been pushing for. He is the one that they’ve been tracking for quite a long time.”
This comes after it was reported earlier this week that Belgian outfit Club Brugge are closing in on a deal for the attacker.
Rangers fans will surely be left excited by this claim from O’Rourke, as it appears to offer them fresh hope that Olsen will end up at Ibrox by the end of this month.
Despite the player reportedly being on his way to Brugge, the Gers remain keen on a deal and are pushing for it to happen, which shows that Wilson will not give up easily. Until the documents are signed and the announcement is made, Olsen is still available to sign before the end of the transfer window, and there is a collective desire from the top dogs in Glasgow to bring him to the club.
Supporters will be excited by this, as he could be a fantastic addition to the team and solve a problem area for Van Bronckhorst. No one player has been able to nail down the right wing position on a regular basis for the Gers, with Scott Wright lining up there in the draw with Aberdeen earlier this week.
He was hooked off in the 64th minute after creating one chance and losing six of his seven ground battles, whilst also failing with his one dribble attempt, as per SofaScore. The winger has two goals and zero assists in 13 Premiership matches, whilst Ianis Hagi – who can play centrally or out wide – also has two goals and zero assists in 15 league games.
Olsen has two assists in just six Serie A starts this season and has produced five goals and three assists in seven starts for Denmark in their 2022 World Cup qualifiers. This suggests that he could come in and provided an added goalscoring and creative threat on the right flank which Hagi and Wright have been unable to offer, which is why Rangers fans will surely be buzzing with the club’s concerted efforts to bring him to Ibrox.
