Update emerges on Rangers quest to sign Celtic target Oscar Gloukh in January transfer window
Rangers have reportedly moved on to other options and are no longer pursuing a move for Celtic target Oscar Gloukh in the January transfer window.
According to the Daily Record [1 December], the 18-year-old midfielder was on the club’s radar in the summer, but is no longer being considered at Ibrox.
The Hoops are among a host of clubs linked with the Israel international who’s currently plying his trade at Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Rangers do need some quality from midfield and the teenager is undoubtedly a talented player who can contribute on both ends.
Per the Record, It is understood that the Israeli outfit are demanding £8million in order to part ways with him.
At 18, Gloukh may be rated a tad high, but he could be a good investment as he’ll be worth a lot more in the future and thus it makes sense to spend that for his resale value.
He was rather unknown in Europe, but he managed to burst onto the scene earlier in 2022 when he wowed many at the Under-19 EUROs.
According to a recent scouting report by the Mastermind Site, he has been labelled a “Magician” for his impeccable passing ability.
Rangers certainly need a player that can tear open defences with one pass and they really must consider making a move for the teenager as if he goes on to achieve great things at Celtic, it’ll be another major regret.
