Rangers are keeping an eye on Reims’ 20-year-old French attacker Billal Brahimi, according to Foot Mercato.

Brahimi used to play for Middlesbrough before he moved back to his home county in the summer of 2019.

He is currently on loan at Le Mans in the third tier of French football as he catches the eye with his performances this season.


According to the report, the Gers could battle it out with sides from Serie A and the Bundesliga in an effort to secure Brahimi’s signature.

It is also claimed that Reims were planning on recalling Brahimi at the end of the season so they can use him next year but they may now be open to selling him as interest is raised in their young star.

Brahimi has six goals and two assists in 16 league appearances this season as the 20-year-old catches the eye of several top clubs.


Brahimi can be deployed as a left-winger and as a centre forward, similarly to Kemar Roofe who can easily be deployed out wide and through the middle.

This could be one of the key reasons that the Gers are reportedly interested in Brahimi as versatile players can be worth their weight in gold to sides who play a lot of matches every season.

Rangers are one such side as they fight for success both domestically and in Europe this year.

Brahimi has very limited experience of top-flight football so it would be a significant step up for the young man if he was to move to Ibrox but his goalscoring record this season is undeniably impressive.

However, with other top-flight clubs interested in Brahimi, Reims may demand a significant fee for their young attacker which could work against Rangers making a move for him.
