Fabrizio Romano gives Rangers major transfer boost to sign Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin
Rangers target Nicolas Raskin is reportedly disappointed by how his club have treated him and a January exit does seem on the cards now.
According to Fabrizio Romano, talks over a new deal have collapsed and the 21-year-old now has just six months left on his deal at the Belgian club.
He’s even been told to train with the reserves and it’s pretty clear that he’s got no future there.
Romano wrote on Twitter, “Nicolas Raskin, one to watch as talks on new deal with Standard collapsed: he has been sent to 2nd squad. He’s disappointed, wanted a smart solution for all parties.
“Raskin, 2001 talented midfielder out of contract in June: UK, French, Italian, German clubs are tracking him.”
Daily Record reported on 18 November that Rangers wanted to bring the 21-year-old to Ibrox in the January window.
Gers do need midfielders, especially if Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara are sold and Raskin would be the perfect replacement.
He will add something different to their midfield and Michael Beale will certainly be impressed by his versatility and could use him as a box to box player as well as a deep-lying playmaker.
This is one deal we’ll be keeping our eyes on and we’ll be hoping that Ross Wilson is proactive for once in the market and starts to touch base with the player’s representatives before richer clubs come looking for him.
