PSG starlet Xavi Simons, who was linked with Rangers during the January transfer window [DailyRecord] has been offered improved terms by the French side who want to keep the youngster beyond the summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Simons has been attracting interest over Europe as his incredible talent has not gone unnoticed, despite his lack of game time this season at PSG.
With his contract expiring in the summer, Rangers and Gio van Bronckhorst were linked with a loan move until then back in January as he was aiming to rejig his squad.

Simons has only featured for the French side on seven occasions this season so far, as he has found it difficult to break into the star-studded lineup.
It was French outlet AS who reported that Rangers were seemingly interested in the young Dutchman way back in December last year before Simons had made an impression on the first-team squad.
Nothing came to pass during January as the club signed Aaron Ramsey, James Sands, and Amad Diallo all on loan deals that made up the bulk of their transfer business.
It now looks like the opportunity to sign the wonderkid has been and gone judging by Romano’s tweet. The Italian wrote that he had “been told” Simons was getting closer to signing a long-term deal with PSG.
With Romano being in the know with just about every major transfer that happens, then it’s fair to say he will remain in France for the foreseeable future.
With the talent that he possesses, then I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have remained at the Ibrox side for long if a dream move had materialised.
