Rangers transfer news as £4.3m bid gets Luis Palma deal done with talks underway

Rangers are in talks for the signing of Luis Palma and can finalize the deal with a £4.3million bid, according to Giannis Chorianopoulos.

A report from Transfer Geeks (5 May) claimed that as many as 10 teams were interested in signing the 23-year-old, who is looking for a move away from Aris this summer.

The Greek news outlet also reported (5 May) that Fenerbahce were interested in Palma but that their move to sign Ryan Kent has subsequently left the Gers in pole position.

“Rangers are keen to sign Luis Palma from Aris Thessaloniki but no official bid yet,” Chorianopoulos wrote on his personal Twitter account.

“Talks are in progress, many clubs are interested in Palma.

“A €5m offer can finalize the deal.”

With Kent and fellow attacker Alfredo Morelos on their way out of Ibrox this summer, Michael Beale has a huge task on his hand to rebuild his squad up to a standard where they can compete for the Scottish Premiership title.

However, spending £4.3million on a player from the Greek league would be a huge risk.

Yes, Palma has been in strong form so far this season, netting 13 goals and supplying eight assists in 35 appearances in all competitions, but is he really worth the gamble?

With Rangers needing to replenish their squad in numerous areas this summer, such a significant outlay on a relatively unexposed player is a huge risk.

Also, the news that as many as 10 clubs could be in for his signing adds yet further risks to the move.

Although a £4.3million offer is expected to be enough to secure Palma’s services, the number of potential suitors means that this move could quite easily turn into a transfer auction.

With Haji Wright among other attackers mentioned, yet another new attacker transfer could be on the cards.

In other Rangers news, the Gers are readying a £6million bid to sign one international striker amid the likely summer exit of Antonio Colak.
