Bears have pleaded with Rangers to swoop after an exciting transfer report linked the club to Bologna winger Andreas Skov Olsen.
Rangers have been credited with interest in the Denmark international in the past and earlier this week, il Resto del Carlino reported that the Ibrox side had made an ‘enquiry’ about him ahead of the January transfer window.
According to the report, Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is open to the idea of moving Olsen on as he has several targets of his own he would like to bring in next month.
Bologna are currently 10th in Serie A and the reported Gers target has featured in 14 of their 17 fixtures so far this season but only four of his appearances have come from the start and he’s yet to score.
The 21-year-old produced outstanding stats when playing regularly at previous club FC Nordsjælland, though, scoring 27 goals and notching seven assists in 51 appearances.
Rangers fans are extremely excited about the links and interest would make sense given that Gio van Bronckhorst doesn’t have a high-quality right-sided attacker in his squad.
Ryan Kent has made the left side his own in recent seasons, but since the departure of Daniel Candeias in the summer of 2019, no one has established themselves on the right.
Rangers fans want Skov Olsen at Ibrox
Real Sociedad and Besiktas are other clubs credited with interest in the il Resto del Carlino report, so Bears are urging the Gers to wrap up a deal as quickly as possible.

Can’t believe he’s still at Bologna. He looked unreal whenever he came in for Denmark in the Euros and clearly has a lot of talent. Tall, pacey winger that can finish. Would be a steal if we got him for any price https://t.co/lc8R9iTAzL

Excited by this one. Looked a player every time I have seen him and still plenty of time to improve and develop further. https://t.co/p3F04xfc1S
