Journalist: Rangers agree “personal terms” with latest summer target

Rangers have agreed personal terms with Antonio Colak ahead of his move to Ibrox – but the issue of a PAOK replacement is causing a delay.

That’s according to Jordan Campbell, who claims that Rangers have already thrashed out the particulars with the deal and it is ready to be signed when PAOK give the go-ahead.

Whilst the Athletic journalist admits the situation has “dragged on” Campbell offered hope that a solution appears to be on the horizon.

“The deal for Antonio Colak is still on but there are things that need to happen before PAOK will sanction it,” said Campbell [Twitter].

“Fee agreed, personal terms sorted, player wants to join as Rangers have been very keen, but PAOK need a replacement.”

Rangers seemingly closing in on Antonio Colak signing

Reports this week had claimed that Rangers had agreed a fee of around £1.8m to sign Antonio Colak, who netted a double with Swedish Champions Malmo at Ibrox last season.

After Cedric Itten left Rangers to join BSC Young Boys for a reported £1.5m fee, this would represent a net spend of around £300k on a replacement.

Greek journalist Georgios Sideridis has also been claiming that it could be the end of next week before PAOK have a replacement and Rangers can sign the Croatian international.

Rangers fans are eager to see their side make some kind of progress in the transfer window and will be hoping the Antonio Colak deal is settled before long.

So far Rangers have only added Heart defender John Souttar to the Ibrox squad this summer with the Gers support hoping to see their side bolstered ahead of the new campaign.

Whilst the club reached the Europa League Final, last season’s team came up short in the Scottish Premiership and there’s a sense that some change is required at Ibrox to wrestle back the title.

Speaking of transfers, according to one journalist the latest links to an £8m-rated wonderkid are wide of the mark.
