Rangers star Ianis Hagi is reportedly attracting interest from La Liga hopefuls Sevilla following high-profile links to Serie A giants Lazio.

The links to Sevilla appear this week via Spanish football news outlet Fichajes who claim the Spanish side – who are mounting a late charge for the top tier title – are leading the pack.

The links then appeared to be confirmed by the chief executive of Viitorul Constanta – the club Ianis’ dad Gheorghe helped to found only eleven years ago.

Cristian Bivolaru was asked about potential transfer interest in the highly popular Hagi, 22, and he discussed links to both Sevilla and Lazio.

“I don’t think the interest of Sevilla for Ianis is new. I think this interest was talked about before he was transferred to Rangers,” said Bivolaru [Herald].

“But I do know Lazio are also on this track too. So we will see what will happen in the summer with Ianis.”

Hagi is reportedly a player in demand and these links to Sevilla come after the attacking midfielder was like to the Italian side Lazio earlier in the month.

Sport.ro claimed that the Italians are monitoring the player’s situation ahead of the summer with Lazio reportedly willing to tempt the Gers with a £11.2m (€13m) offer.

Ianis Hagi joined Rangers in the summer for a reported £3m fee [Glasgow Times], signing a “long term” deal after initially impressing on loan in the second half of last season.

Hagi has impressed in patches this season, the attacking midfielder netting seven goals and laying on 12 assists in 42 games in an impressive contribution to the campaign.

The Romanian international is highly marketable given his profile back in his homeland and Gers fans even flocked to a local Glasgow store to buy one some of the player’s merch this week.
