Report: Van Bronkhorst really wants Rangers to sign international striker, he's his first choice to replace Morelos

Glasgow Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has made Antonio Colak his top target to replace Alfredo Morelos.

The Daily Mail report that the Ibrox club have made a bid to bring the hitman to the Scottish Premiership ahead of next season.

They say Rangers insist they have made one bid for the international striker, which has been accepted.

And they expect that personal terms would not be an issue over signing the Croatian for a fee around £1.8 million.

Rangers make Colak top target

The report says that Morelos could well leave the club this summer amid interest from Sevilla, whose ground was of course the scene of Rangers’ Europa League final heartbreak.

Morelos is now entering the final year of his contract, which impacts his transfer value and the window in which Rangers can get a good fee for him.

Colak did well on loan at Malmo last season, before returning to PAOK, where he struggled for gametime and goals.

Rangers apparently hope to fly the Croatian to Glasgow as soon as the Greek side secure a suitable replacement for their striker.

Cedric Itten and Amad Diallo moved on at the end of the season and van Bronckhorst needs increased firepower.

Colak, who scored twice when Malmo knocked Rangers out of the Champions League in the third qualifying round last summer is the Dutchman’s top pick.

That said, Reports in Greece this claimed that the Scottish Cup holders have made two bids, both of which were rejected, so it remains to be seen what is the truth at this stage.
