Rangers to be at centre of biggest Scottish transfer story today - Sky Sports
Rangers are set to be at the centre of the biggest Scottish transfer story today (31 January) as Nicolas Raskin nears his move to Ibrox, according to Sky Sports.
The Gers look like they will finally be getting a Raskin deal over the line, something which has been a long time coming for the Ibrox faithful.
With Todd Cantwell already signed and sealed from Norwich City it seems Raskin will be the second and final signing Rangers make in the January transfer window.
“Rangers look set to be the centre of the biggest Scottish transfer story of deadline day as their move for Nicolas Raskin nears completion,” as quoted by Sky Sports. (30 January, 22.33 PM)
“Gers boss Michael Beale stated that they were getting closer to a deal for the 21-year-old Standard Liege midfielder despite a “lot of competition” for his signature.
“Beale has been fairly relaxed about the club’s January business after signing Todd Cantwell from Norwich and appears to have given up on his pursuit of Swansea striker Morgan Whittaker.”

This transfer saga finally seems to be coming to a close and the Gers can take one big sigh of relief as the deadline clock ticks down.
Raskin brings with him a lot of excitement and the 21-year-old will be expected to hit the ground running in Beale’s outfit at Ibrox.
Pen to paper and an official confirmation will be needed before anyone can get too ahead of themselves but this should be done at some point today.
Beale will then have at least got two of the three targets he had hoped for, not bad business considering the Light Blues’ recent transfer windows.
There are likely to be plenty more changes in the summer months than now and Beale will be assessing who should be part of his squad for the next campaign.
It’s clear that the Englishman is trying to build a youthful team for the future and this is a pattern of signings that he will likely make in the summer too.
