Sporting Charleroi midfielder Adem Zorgane may have opened the door for a move to Wolves or Rangers, telling Belgian publication RTBF that he dreams of ‘playing in the Champions League’ or the Premier League.

The January additions of Nicolas Raskin and Todd Cantwell are a start, of course. But Rangers’ midfield overhaul is only just beginning.

Come the summer, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Steven Davis and the versatile James Sands will all be out of contract. The long-term future of Bayern Munich loanee Malik Tillman is also uncertain.

Do not be overly surprised, then, if Zorgane become an active concern at Ibrox once again. According to France Football reporter Nabil Djellit, the 23-year-old Algeria international was the subject of an approach from Rangers during the summer of 2022, Charleroi deeming their offer ‘insufficient’.


Zorgane’s reputation has only grown since then; FootMercato reporting that he was a January target for Laurent Blanc’s Lyon.

But, should they renew their interest, Rangers could have an advantage over their more deep-pocketed rivals from the other side of the Channel.

Will Rangers make another move for Adem Zorgane?

Second in the Scottish Premiership guarantees a place in the final round of Champions League qualifiers these days, after all. And Zorgane’s desire to join a club playing at the very top of the European game could make Ibrox, as a destination, that little bit more tempting.

“I’m not going to lie, it’s my plan to leave,” the former ES Setif youngster admits. “I have always dreamed of playing in the Champions League.”

Zorgane, a complete and well-rounded central midfielder capable of both creating and preventing chances, has admirers at Wolverhampton Wanderers too (Voetbal Krant). With his combination of guile and grit, Zorgane could be an intelligent long-term replacing for Joao Moutinho at Molineux.

“I am thinking of a transfer to France, Spain or England,” the £7 million-rated playmaker adds.

Zorgane has three goals and seven assists this season; almost matching his tally from the whole of 2021/22 three months ahead of schedule.

“He is a beautiful footballer,” says former Belgium international Franky Van der Elst. “He can play one touch, he can dribble, he can hold people off and win his duels.”
