Michaelis Iordanidis reveals PAOK open to selling Rangers target Antonio Colak this summer

PAOK legend Michaelis Iordanidis believes that Rangers target striker Antonio Colak will leave the Greek club in the current transfer window.

The Gers have been in the market to sign a striker as a backup for Alfredo Morelos who is likely to leave the club after entering the final 12 months of his contract.

Iordanidis was quoted in a report by Daily Record where he suggested that the Greek side will listen to offers for the player who has found it hard to adjust to his current club.

“Antonio Colak was an expensive acquisition for the club, but let’s be honest it hasn’t worked out as expected at all,” he said. “He just hasn’t been able to cope with Greek football and he will be sold for sure.”

Interesting signing

It is the time of the year when Giovanni van Bronckhorst has to start earning his money. Unlike all the other European clubs, his first full season at the Ibrox Stadium starts early as he prepares to play the Champions League qualifiers.

He has to make sure that he creates a good enough spine with competition in every area of the pitch.

He cannot afford to have a spine full of injury-prone players like we saw last season, which practically made them field a makeshift starting 11 in the Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

As he knows that Morelos has not committed his long-term future to the club fully due to his ongoing transfer speculation, it is important that he gets Colak over the line and makes life easy for his attackers.

As the Croatia international has struggled in Greece since his move in 2020, sometimes it is important that a player changes his environment. Perhaps, a new country may change the fortunes of the 28-year-old.
