Real Sociedad have advantage over Rangers in signing Pablo Torre
Rangers are likely to face strong competition from Real Sociedad to sign Pablo Torre in the January transfer window.
According to reports from La Razon, a host of Spanish clubs including Valencia and Real Madrid are checking on the highly-rated young midfielder.
The report claims that Rangers are following in the footsteps of the youngster, but Sociedad, at the moment have an advantage.
Sociedad appear to have an edge as their policy is seen as an attractive option for the player.
Their reserve team plays in the second division in Spain, which will help the youngster grow quickly.

Rangers are also struggling financially, but they would be able to afford him at that price.
The Gers sold Nathan Patterson on a club-record transfer fee, and they have money burning holes in their pocket.
It seems Van Bronckhorst rates the youngster highly who has scored three goals and provided six assists in 17 games this season.
Rangers are well stocked in midfield at the moment, and as such signing another midfielder is a luxury.
It remains to be seen if the Bears make any formal move for him this month, as they might focus on bolstering other areas of the pitch.
