Report: Rangers target Salih Ozcan transfer

Rangers are identified Salih Ozcan as a target, with German outlet Kicker reporting that the Gers are preparing in case one of their midfielders leave Ibrox in the summer transfer window.

Rangers now have a Champions League campaign to look forward to, and the supporters will be hoping to see the squad bolstered before they take on some of Europe’s best.

According to Kicker, one of the players on their radar is Ozcan – and he will be available on the cheap.

It is claimed that Rangers have asked about Ozcan, who is part of Germany’s under-21 side at the European Championships.

Interestingly, the report adds that the Light Blues are eyeing a move for Ozcan in case one of their midfielders leave Ibrox.

Ozcan a smart target for Rangers in summer transfer window

On a free transfer, it is hard to see a downside to a move for Ozcan.

He is a player who can play almost anywhere across the midfield. And that could potentially make him an ideal option for Gerrard’s system.

He was even a regular goalscorer at youth level, but now tends to play in a deeper role.

It is suggested that a Premier League move is his dream, but Rangers can offer Champions League football.

That should make an Ibrox switch extremely tempting to the youngster at this stage of his career.

Rangers will hopefully push the boat out this year, but this could prove to be an inspired piece of business.
