Rangers have reportedly rejected a £6million bid from Galatasaray for Ianis Hagi, with Ibrox boss Gio van Bronckhorst viewing the Romanian as an important player for next season.
According to Sport.ro, the Turkish giants aren’t giving up on their long-term pursuit of the Rangers star having seen a bid dismissed ahead of the January window too.
A renewed bid of €7million (£6million) this summer has already been thrown out with Rangers looking forward to Hagi’s return to action after a serious knee injury.
Having missed out on Rangers’ run to the Europa League final, Hagi will be desperate to get back playing ahead of the new campaign as he documents his rehab on social media.

The same report also claims that Jose Mourinho was interested in taking Hagi to Roma prior to his injury.
Getting the Romanian back playing will be a big boost for Rangers after losing him to injury in January.
While there are certain to be a number of exits this summer, keeping Hagi would be a positive, although if Gala return with a new bid, the numbers might become too big to turn down.
Hagi being a Galatasaray fan could complicate things – he was born in Istanbul while his dad played for the Turks – although there’s nothing to suggest that he wants to leave Rangers any time soon.
