Rangers: Light Blues battling arch-rivals to sign Nigeria international -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers are reportedly now fighting their Old Firm rivals to bring a Nigeria international to Ibrox this summer.

The Lowdown: Morelos’ future

The future of Alfredo Morelos is still very much up in the air, and as such Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team may look to bring in a new striker this summer.

They have reportedly already made an offer for Erik Botheim, but they could well move on to other targets if that deal does not progress.

The Latest: Odey transfer talks

As per All Nigeria Soccer, preliminary talks have already been held with Rangers’ sporting director Ross Wilson over a potential move for Stephen Odey, who would cost €4m (£3.4m) to sign from Danish club Randers.

However, the Light Blues’ Old Firm rivals Celtic have made their own approach for him, although no bids have been submitted as of yet.

The Verdict: Wait on Morelos

Rangers need to sort out Morelos’ situation first before going in for another striker.

The Colombia international only has a year remaining on his contract, so he is susceptible to leaving for free next year.

Should Rangers sign Odey?

No

Once dubbed ‘exceptional‘ by one of his former managers Fidelis Ilechukwu, Odey has come off the back of a good season with Randers, scoring 14 goals and supplying a further two assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

However, the 24-year-old may find it difficult to live up to expectations at Ibrox if Morelos departs in the near future, given the Colombian’s extraordinary return of 113 goals in 224 Gers appearances.
