According to Topsport.bg, Glasgow Rangers target Kristiyan Malinov would cost the club €2m (£1.8m) if they were to sign him.
The ‘Gers are said to be interested in the midfielder, with a source close to the player saying that he would be “privileged” to play for the Ibrox outfit.
This latest report has claimed that Standard Liege, who are also in pursuit, were told that they could have Malinov for €2m (£1.8m).
This price tag should not really be an issue at all for Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard, even if it is 25% higher than his £1.44m Transfermarkt value. The 26-year-old has 13 caps for Bulgaria and, at his age, he should be approaching the peak of his career. He has made 113 appearances for CSKA Sofia, one of the biggest clubs in the Balkan state, and also has experience of playing at Europa League level, so this would appear to be an acceptable sum.
Would you like to sign Malinov?
Of course, there are other things that must be taken into consideration – for example, how much other targets will cost, as well as whether they actually need him given the strong competition Gerrard already has in the middle of the park. However, they at least appear to know where they stand, and Wilson can now weigh up the pros and cons in deciding whether Malinov is indeed worth that fee.
