Rangers are looking to secure a cut-price January transfer for Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin, according to Sacha Tavolieri.

Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, the RMC journalist insisted that Liege were demanding £2.2million and a 20% sell-on clause.

Despite that, Tavolieri did insist that it wouldn’t be that price and actually less if Rangers can get a move over the line and signed as talks became advanced between all parties.

Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, Tavolieri said: “Yes it’s about a permanent move this winter.

“Standard is asking €2.5m [£2.2m] + 20% sell on but it won’t be that price it will be less for sure.”

Bargain.

Ross Wilson has taken his fair amount of stick in recent years, and most of it was deserved.

But, he may be able to somewhat redeem himself if he can get this cut-price deal over the line in the next couple of weeks before the January window slams shut.

Raskin is out of contract at Standard Liege in the summer, and the 21-year-old has been effectively frozen out by the Belgian club, so a move is best for all parties.

Michael Beale has had long enough to evaluate his squad now, and a new number six has been desperately needed for far too long with his side losing control of games far too often.

Bringing in someone such as Raskin could solve that issue, and for the forseeable future given his young age and his experience already collected.

This is certainly one to watch now.
