According to recent reports from Italy, Glasgow Rangers attacking midfielder, Ianis Hagi, could be set to leave Ibrox this summer.
The report by Noi Biancocelesti (via Sport Witness) claims that, with it looking unlikely that Lazio will go on to make Andreas Pereira’s loan move a permanent deal at the end of the season, Simone Inzaghi’s side are considering other options for additions to their attacking midfield in the summer transfer window.
And, it would appear that this interest is something that Lazio now appear keen on reigniting, with Noi Biancocelesti claiming that the Italian side, who did boast Champions League football this campaign, value the Romania international at around €6 million (£5 million).
Sport Witness suggest that this could prove something of a stumbling block for I Biancocelesti, as Steven Gerrard and co will likely demand a much larger fee for the midfielder.
Should Rangers sell Hagi for an offer of £5m this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
Having signed Hagi for £3.15 million last summer, in the unlikely event that Rangers do accept an offer of around £5 million for the 22-year-old in the upcoming transfer window, the club would still have turned a decent profit on the midfielder.
However, considering the fact that Hagi has proven himself a crucial part of Gerrard’s side this season, scoring seven goals and providing 12 assists over his 38 appearances in all competitions, with former Romania boss, Christoph Daum, dubbing midfielder an “excellent” talent, it is not difficult to imagine the Gers boss being uncertain about selling the midfielder for a figure of around £10 million, let alone the quoted £5 million.
