Rangers now want to sign FC Midtjylland playmaker Evander in a deadline-busting transfer, as shared by ESPN journalist Gustavo Hofman.

The ESPN man shared that the Brazilian confirmed he has an agreement with the Danish club to be sold by the end of this current summer window.

It is shared that Rangers and Copenhagen have expressed interest, while talks with Galatasaray have since broken down, possibly making it a two-horse race.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Hofman shared what the playmaker confirmed on a recent podcast edition of Futebol no Mondo on his immediate future.

“Transfer news: Evander, at Futebol no Mundo podcast, confirmed today that he has an agreement with Midtjylland to be transferred till the end of this transfer window,” he wrote.

“No negotiations anymore with Galatasaray; Rangers and Copenhagen also demonstrated interest, he said.”

This would be the perfect way to end the summer window.

Evander has represented Brazil at international youth level, scoring an impressive seven goals in his 11 under-17 appearances back in the day.

Of course, he is now 24 years old, but the chance to bring that talent to Glasgow will no doubt be tempting for both Ross Wilson and Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

A big problem so far has been that attacking man in the midfield three, with Glen Kamara tasked with that role and struggling to create things in all competitions.

Evander would surely relish that role to start pulling the strings and getting on the ball behind either Alfredo Morelos or Antonio Colak and show his flair.

After smashing in 17 goals and adding 11 assists in all competitions last season, including Champions League qualifiers and the Europa League, maybe it is time to move away from Denmark.

Ibrox is calling, and it is certainly far too good to turn down.
