According to reports from Belgium, Glasgow Rangers summer transfer target, Fashion Sakala, is keen on making a move to Ibrox this summer.
However, it is then claimed that, despite the fact Lille currently top the Ligue 1 table, Sakala would actually rather a move to Ibrox than a switch to France upon the expiry of his contract with the Jupiler Pro League side at the end of the season.
Would Sakala be a good signing for Rangers?
Transfer Tavern Take
So far this season, Sakala has impressed over his 28 league appearances for Alexander Blessin’s side, with the 24-year-old scoring 13 goals and providing two assists for Oostende, as well as averaging a SofaScore match rating of 6.83 – ranking him as the club’s ninth-best performer in the Belgian top flight.
As such, it is unsurprising why Gerrard is reported to be keen on adding the £3,300-per-week forward to his attacking arsenal this summer, and, with the news that the striker would favour a move to Ibrox over other interested parties, perhaps this is a deal we could see being completed in the not so distant future.
