Reports in Romania [Digisport] originally claimed the German side were watching the player but this latest piece of news suggests the club will make their interest concrete before long.

Hagi, 22, is on a fine run of form as of late as he begins to settle into Scottish football and has impressed in recent matches.

Despite being in and out of the side this season Hagi has also posted strong numbers from for the Gers, laying on 10 assists and scoring four goals in 26 games this season.

The reports of interest from Germany also come after Hagi’s father and Romanian footballing legend Gheorghe claimed that things are “perfect” with his son at Rangers.

The ex-Barcelona and Real Madrid star is currently living with Hagi in Glasgow amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m happy to be in Scotland. It’s really nice,” Hagi told Romanian journalist Emmanuel Rosu.

“I’m watching football at Ianis’ house on Sky all day long. I am learning.

“Also, I didn’t go to any of his games, I didn’t want to perturb any Covid protocol.

“It’s going perfect for Ianis here. We’re together. We’ll always be.”

Rangers signed Ianis Hagi on a permanent £3m deal in the summer after the attacking midfielder enjoyed a successful loan spell at Ibrox before the Covid-19 shutdown.

The suggestion RBL could sign Hagi is also directly contradictory to the comments of Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, who sent a defiant transfer message regarding his key players.
