GvB can solve one Rangers problem with January swoop for £5.85m-rated magician – opinion

A Rangers transfer claim has been made regarding a potential incoming at Ibrox for the Glasgow giants…

What’s the talk?

The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell has revealed that Bologna winger Andreas Skov Olsen is not an unrealistic signing ahead of the January transfer window.

He wrote in his end-of-year review: “You get those names that never go away and Olsen is one. He falls into the category of ‘should be unrealistic but isn’t quite’. Plus, a Danish winger signing from Italy? I think I’ve heard that one before somewhere. He has terrific technique and dribbling ability and would fill that berth on the right wing by providing a different skill set to what is currently available.”

This comes after Italian outlet Il Resto del Carlino recently claimed that the Gers have made an enquiry over a potential deal for the forward.

Could solve one problem

Giovanni van Bronckhorst could solve a significant problem in his Rangers squad by signing the £5.85m-rated attacker next month.

The Dutchman does not have a clear first-choice option on the right wing, with a number of players vying for that spot in the team. Nobody has been able to make it their own on a consistent basis, with Scott Wright and Ianis Hagi on three goals and zero assists between them in the Premiership.

This suggests that the Gers could bolster their squad by bringing in a right-sided winger to start week in, week out. Olsen is predominantly a right-sided forward, although he can play anywhere across the front line, and has shown that he can score and set up goals.

He has scored six goals in 15 caps for Denmark and has racked up 46 goals and 14 assists in 100 starts as a right winger in his career at youth and senior club level. This suggests that he could come in at Ibrox and be a go-to starter if he is able to translate that form over to Scotland and regularly contribute at the top end of the pitch.

At the age of 22, he also has plenty of room left to improve and could be a signing for the future as well as the here-and-now. This means that Rangers could develop him further before making a profit in the future via a lucrative sale, making this potential deal a great future investment along with being an excellent signing in the shorter-term.
