Rangers 'make offer' for wonderkid compared to £34m superstar

Egyptian wonderkid Mahmoud Saber has claimed that Rangers have made an approach for him after the 18-year-old’s contract expired at Al-Ahly.

The winger – who has naturally been compared to £34m Liverpool star Mohammed Salah – is only 18 and free to sign on at a new club for next to nothing.

Such has been the impressive start to his footballing career the versatile young winger has been attracting interest from across Europe, not least from Ibrox.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Saber revealed that Rangers are battling Valencia in Spain, Benfica in Portugal and an unnamed Tunisian giant to sign the player.

“Because I have never signed a professional contract with Al-Ahly, I am deemed an amateur player and can sign for a new club for nothing,” explains Saber.

“I have offers from Rangers in Scotland, Valencia in Spain and Benfica from Portugal as well as a big club in Tunisia. I will make my decision soon.

“I have European agents sorting my future and I hope to be in a position to sign for my new club shortly.”

Rangers have already been busy in the transfer market this season making a total of six first-team signings so far.

Ianis Hagi joined following a successful loan from Genk, whilst Calvin Bassey, Jon McLaughlin, Leon Balogun and strike pair Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten have also joined the club.

Rangers have also signed teenage striker Tony Weston from Blackpool in a move which is considered a major coup given the striker had already broken into the Seasiders squad.
