Giovanni van Bronckhorst wants to push through Rangers transfer for Antonio Colak quickly - Chris Jack

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is now looking to push through a deal for Rangers to sign PAOK forward Antonio Colak as soon as possible, according to Chris Jack.

The reliable journalist has reported that the Croatian would be coming in to replace Cedric Itten, who has already left Ibrox to join Young Boys this summer.

Colak will then look to challenge Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe for a starting spot, rather than coming as a direct replacement for either of those players.

Writing for the Rangers Review, Jack shared what the feeling is from the managers’ office as the Bears get ready to kickstart their summer business.

“Now Van Bronckhorst will aim to tie up a deal for Colak as soon as possible as the Croatian international fills the void left by Cedric Itten’s departure,” he said.

“And seeks to challenge Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe for a starting spot this term.”

Get it done.

The Rangers Review have also reported that Colak is desperate for the move and basically has his bags packed ready to jet into Scotland and start life in Glasgow.

If that isn’t someone who is ready to force through the move and make his current club, PAOK, stop playing games, then we don’t know if that would ever be possible.

Van Bronckhorst will be working hand-in-hand with Ross Wilson and it looks as though this deal is as good as done, it is just those final logistics.

Colak will offer great competition, and replacing Itten, who never really played anyway will mean that our options in the final third take a huge step forward.

If Morelos sticks around too beyond this summer, there will likely be little to no need for another attacker to come in, meaning our focus can go on other areas, such as out wide and maybe at the back.

Here we go.
