Ross Wilson takes close look as Rangers transfer blitz mooted for new striker

Ross Wilson is casting a close eye over a number of different targets as he looks to strengthen Rangers options in the final third, according to the Scottish Daily Express.

It has been made no secret that the Bears are looking a new striker, and a blitz could be on the cards for Sunderland’s Ross Stewart and PAOK talisman Antonio Colak.

The English side are planning contract talks with the Scotsman, with PAOK looking for a deal worth up to £2.5million for their Croatian centre-forward.

Writing in his latest piece, Scott Burns shared the latest coming from Ibrox as they look to reinforce options in the final third this summer.

“Stewart is on Rangers’ radar and is amongst a number of striking options that Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson is looking closely at,” he wrote.

“PAOK frontman Antonio Colak is also is in the Light Blues’ sights. The Greek side are looking for a deal of around £2.5 million for their Croatian star.”


Wilson is looking very closely at the list, and decision time will be very soon.

Will Rangers only look to bring in one new face in the final third? Or could they even go for both Colak and Stewart as they look to reinforce their options?

Giovanni van Bronckhorst has let Cedric Itten move on, and there are big doubts regarding the future of Alfredo Morelos as his contract hits the final year in Glasgow.

The Bufalo and Kemar Roofe both picked up serious injuries last season, so bringing in two new options to bulk up the squad and prepare them for any eventuality certainly makes sense.

Wilson has a big decision to make, and it will all depend on the money available to him as he looks to work closely with Van Bronckhorst and his vision for this squad.

It has all been very quiet at Ibrox so far, but that looks as though it’s about to change.

In other Rangers news, scouts at Ibrox are said to have watched this ‘immense’ powerhouse numerous times ahead of a potential major transfer
