As we look forward to the transfer window, Rangers are in the hunt for “greater quality” [Rangers.co.uk]. And if it’s quality at the end of the pitch they’re after, what about Nikolay Komlichenko?
The 23-year-old Mlada Boleslav forward has been on exceptional form for the Czech side this season. The Russian forward has scored 27 goals and laid on seven assists in 31 games this year. He also leads the Fortuna Liga’s scoring charts with 24 goals.
It is an immense return for the former Russian U21 international. Still young, he may well be thinking about the next step in his career.
Should Nikolay Komlichenko be ready to move, Rangers should at least be considering the player.
Whilst there is absolutely no official suggestion Rangers are interested, the club isn’t scared to go east in search of new signings.
Granted, Borna Barisic and Eros Grezda have not lived up to their billing. Or their price tags [Herald]. But reports have suggested we could return to Croatia, and NK Osijek, for the HNL.1’s top scorer Mirko Maric [Daily Record].
If Rangers are casting their net as far as Croatia, you can bet Komlichenko has flagged up somewhere in their search.
But with that goalscoring return, Rangers could wind up with a more lethal, deadly and potent Andrei Kanchelskis.
