Rangers beat two Belgian clubs for Nicolas Raskin transfer with personal terms agreed
Rangers reportedly beat RC Genk and Royal Antwerp to secure the services of Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin in January.
According to HLN [20 January, 18:29], the two Belgian clubs enquired about him in the past few months, but he preferred to move abroad.
It’s understood that Rangers will now contact Liege as they’ve already agreed on personal terms with the out-of-favour 21-year-old.
We’re excited over the prospect of seeing Raskin in a Rangers jersey as he has been linked with a move to Ibrox for a while now.
Gers appear to be backing new manager Michael Beale and are giving him the tools to rebuild this side in a way that he sees fit.
Raskin is a quality midfielder who’s extremely versatile and can operate in any midfield position the manager decides to deploy him in.
That’s important as Beale does like to make in-game changes without the change of personnel and we could see two halves of completely different styles and Raskin is the ideal player for that.
We’re hoping that he finalises all the paperwork over the weekend as these things do take a lot of time, especially if there’s interest from elsewhere.
Gers play St Johnstone next in the league on 28 January and hopefully, Raskin is announced by then and he may even be in the squad.
