According to recent reports, interest in Glasgow Rangers midfielder, Ianis Hagi, is intensifying ahead of the summer transfer window.
The report by Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claims that Lazio are looking to strengthen their attacking options this summer, and that the Serie A side have turned their attention towards Hagi.
So far this season, the £21,000-per-week 22-year-old has impressed over his 28 Scottish Premiership appearances for Steven Gerrard’s side, scoring six goals and providing nine assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.93 – ranking him as Gers’ 13th-best performer in the Scottish top flight.
And, according to Gazzetta, should Lazio wish to prize the attacking midfielder away from Ibrox this summer, Rangers would demand a fee of around €10 million (£8.6 million).
Should Rangers sell Hagi for an offer of £5m this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
While Hagi’s return of goals and assists has been impressive for Rangers so far this season, it will certainly be interesting to see how Gerrard’s side react should an offer of £8.6 million arrive for the Romania international, as this figure is substantially above both the player’s current Transfermarkt market value of £5.4 million, as well as the £3.15 million fee Gers paid for the midfielder last summer.
However, for now, this is all a theoretical discussion, as both Rangers’ and Hagi’s focus will undoubtedly be on seeing out their Premiership campaign with an unbeaten record.
