Rangers have reportedly had a loan bid for Bologna winger Andreas Skov Olsen rejected, according to a report in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting, via Sport Witness, that the Gers launched a loan bid for the 20-year-old winger who cost the Serie A side £5.4m (€6m) last season.

The newspaper clipping used by Sport Witness claims that the Gers will need to make Bologna an “offer you can’t refuse” for the former FC Nordsjælland talent.

It is said that Rangers are rivalling FC Copenhagen in Skov Olsen’s native Denmark for the player’s signature but that Bologna are unwilling to sell the player on loan.

Skov Olsen made 26 Serie A appearances last season – 19 of those from the bench – as La Dotta finished 12th in the Italian top tier.

A highly-rated young Danish talent, Skov Olsen has made 16 caps for the Denmark U21s, scoring eight goals.

The youngster can play across the three behind the striker and would provide competition to the likes of Ianis Hagi, Ryan Kent and Joe Aribo.

But if Rangers want the player the word in the Italian press is that they will need to cough up to bring him to Glasgow.

Rangers have already signed Ianis Hagi, Calvin Bassey, Jon McLaughlin, Leon Balogun, Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten in this transfer window.

Ibrox club boss Steven Gerrard has also explained that he wants to add another player into the “engine room” at Ibrox.
