As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers transfer target Youssouf Mulumbu has discussed recent interest in clubs looking to sign him this summer.
The 31-year-old is having a fantastic season in the Scottish Premiership, helping transform Kilmarnock from relegation certainties into one of the best sides in the division.
Earlier this week he was reported to be a subject of interest for Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibs this summer, with his contract due to expire at Killie at the end of the season.
Now he’s opened up on a potential move away from the Ayrshire.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Mulumbu said:
I’m not going to lie to you, it’s an honour to have my name linked with those teams but I don’t even know if it’s rumours or if it’s true.
I’m proud of that. I don’t know if it’s true or not but I’m proud.
I know that when you have some good games against the best teams in the league, Celtic or Rangers, people are going to start talking and saying ‘he’s going to go there’.
But the best thing for me is to focus on Kilmarnock and with all the respect I have for the club I can’t be thinking about something else and some other team.
Off the pitch, I leave that to my agent Sebastien Casenaz.
While focused on the remaining games with Killie this season, he certainly appears interested in a move away, so should the Ibrox side make their move?
As evidenced by his recent display in a Kilmarnock win at Ibrox, the DR Congo international has more than enough about his game to suggest he could definitely become a regular starter at Rangers.
The Light Blues midfield has been accused of being too lightweight at times this season, something that was apparent in their tussle with Motherwell this past weekend.
On a free transfer, making a move for him at the end of the season is something of a no-brainer, especially given his apparent interest in playing for a big club like the Gers.
