As per Turkish outlet Fotospor, Glasgow Rangers made a £5m offer for Bright Osayi-Samuel before he moved to Fenerbahce in January.
Gers failed in Osayi-Samuel bid
The 23-year-old completed a move to the Turkish giants in January after the Ibrox outfit had been linked with a move for the former QPR man (The Athletic).
Reportedly, the Gers offered £5m for his services, as did Celtic.
Osayi-Samuel is clearly an exciting talent. Called “dangerous” by QPR boss Mark Warburton towards the end of last year (via West London Sport), the winger managed five goals and nine assists in the Championship last term (Transfermarkt). Fenerbahce are one of Turkey’s biggest teams and are regulars in European competition – they represent a big upgrade from the Loftus Road outfit.
Would you liked to have signed Bright Osayi-Samuel?
With just one assist to his name in seven league games, Osayi-Samuel is yet to really get going at his new club. Ross Wilson and co could well be disappointed he did not decide to move to the 54-time Scottish champions, but the Gers did at least go out and sign Scott Wright last month instead. If they can qualify for next season’s Champions League, the Gers will be in a good position to at least bring in a player of the Nigeria native’s quality.
