Rangers appear to have received a huge boost ahead of the summer, with the Evening Times providing an update on Ianis Hagi’s future this week.
Hagi has looked to be an excellent loan signing for the Gers. The 21-year-old has scored three goals for Steven Gerrard’s side, and has already managed to get Ibrox rocking on a number of occasions.
He appears to still be perfecting his game. But the decision to sign him at the start of the year looks to have been an inspired move.
And one of the clauses included in the loan agreement appears to have the potential to be one of the first masterstrokes from Ross Wilson since his arrival towards the end of 2019.
The Evening Times has suggested that Rangers’s sporting director struck a deal with Genk that would give the Gers the first option on signing Hagi permanently this summer.
The report notes that Hagi has now reiterated to the Scottish Premiership side that he would like to extend his stay beyond this season.
It appears that all the pieces are ready to fall into place, and Rangers should be able to make Hagi’s move permanent in the coming months.
And based on his start to life with the Gers, that could be a fantastic piece of business.
He has already proved his ability to be a game-changer for Steven Gerrard’s side. And he is only going to improve as he gets older and adapts further to the demands of Scotland’s top flight.
Wilson will be responsible for a lot more than just Rangers’s dealings in the transfer market. But there is little question that the supporters will predominantly judge him based on the players he brings in as well as the sales he oversees.
The move to secure an option on Hagi’s loan deal back in January certainly sees him off to a very good start.
