Glasgow Rangers are reportedly interested in bringing Jean-Pierre Nsame to Ibrox this summer, according to Cameroonian outlet Kick442.com.
The BSC Young Boys striker turned out against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers twice in the Europa League group stages.
Nsame played 90 minutes in his team’s 2-1 win in Bern and an hour of their 1-0 defeat at Ibrox.
According to Kick442.com, Gerrard was impressed with the 27-year-old’s performances against his side and the two have already spoken.
Nsame joined Young Boys on a five-year deal in 2017 and has impressed for the Swiss side, recording 67 goals and 15 assists in 126 competitive games.
The once-capped Cameroon international has been especially impressive this season, with 30 goals in 30 league appearances and 36 in 41 games in all competitions.
Kick442.com also claims that Nsame could be on his way to Rangers at the end of the Swiss campaign, with the Ibrox club willing to pay 4.2m euros (around £3.8million) for his services.
Rangers have been linked with several superb players turning out for modest clubs over the past few months but paying under £4million for a striker in his prime with a goal a game in his league this season would be a masterstroke from the scouting department.
With Jermain Defoe out injured and question marks over Alfredo Morelos’ Ibrox future, it’s imperative for Rangers to bring in a top striker who can hit the ground running, and Nsame very much looks like he’d fit that bill.
