Borna Barisic has been in excellent form for Rangers this season and it seems his performances have attracted rival interest.
Indeed, according to a recent report from the Sunday Post, Roma are willing to dig deep to to sign the left-back this month as the Serie A giants look to strengthen their squad ahead of a push to finish in the top four.
Rangers have reportedly opened contract talks with the 27-year-old amid interest from the Italian capital.
Given his form this season, it’s no surprise that reports have been met with strong resistance from the Ibrox faithful.
The flying Croatia international has been a rock in defence and equally a vital presence in the attacking third, providing 13 assists from 27 appearances in all competition this season – including two in the Old Firm victory at the end of 2019.
In response to the report, some Rangers fans suggested it would take a mammoth fee to prise him away from the club this month, while others simply stated the player isn’t for sale.

The summer window proved that Scottish clubs can be vulnerable to the charm of Europe’s elite top flight leagues.
Arsenal managed to swoop for Kieran Tierney in a £25m move, and this Gers supporter referenced the former Celtic man’s injury problems as reason to suggest Barisic would command a larger fee.
A full international who is far superior to crumbly hips. Start the bidding at £30 million.

This fan, meanwhile, suggested that Barisic will stay at Ibrox to see the club clinch their next two title victories.
The club’s success in that endeavour may well be influenced by their ability to keep hold of Barisic and other star players.
Not deep enough. He is here for 55 and 56.

Finally, this fan labelled him the best left back Scotand has seen since Arthur Numan.
Best left back in Scottish football since Numan.
