Rangers chiefs seek to complete transfer worth more than £2million for Antonio Colak - Chris Jack
Rangers chiefs are now looking to complete a deal worth more than £2million to sign PAOK forward Antonio Colak, according to Chris Jack.
The reliable journalist has reported that Giovanni van Bronckhorst has made adding more goals thi his side a priority with the 28-year-old now a “prime target.”
PAOK are said to be standing firm with Ibrox chiefs locked in talks to secure an agreement sooner rather than later to kickstart the business this summer.
Writing in his latest piece for the Glasgow Evening Times, Jack shared the latest on the deal with things changing in recent days at Ibrox.
“Striker Colak has emerged as a prime candidate in recent days and Rangers are keen to secure an agreement that will bring the 28-year-old to Glasgow ahead of the new campaign,” he wrote.
“Greek outfit PAOK are standing firm on their valuation for Colak, though, as Ibrox chiefs seek to do a deal worth more than £2million for the striker who helped eliminate them from the Champions League last August with Malmo.
“Adding more goals to the team is one of Van Bronckhorst’s priorities ahead of his first full season in charge.”
Everyone on board.
Van Bronckhorst has looked at his squad ahead of his first full season in charge at Ibrox, and has identified the areas that he thinks need strengthening the most.
Adding that extra striker appears critical, and it looks as though Ross Wilson and the board are pushing to make that happen sooner rather than later.
The Daily Record reported on Tuesday [28 June] that PAOK are demanding £2.6million to make this one happen, so it looks as though that is the package that Ibrox chiefs are now working on.
It would kickstart the business needed this summer perfectly, and it would allow Colak time to settle in at Auchenhowie for basically a whole month before the Scottish Premiership gets underway again.
This move for the Croatian appears to be getting closer by the day, and it won’t be long until he is announced with that famous blue shirt in his hands – bring it on.
