La Liga outfit Real Sociedad have a transfer “advantage” over Rangers in the hunt for 18-year-old Spanish talent Pablo Torre, according to a report in Spain.
La Razon are claiming that Sociedad are a step ahead of the rest when it comes to the Racing Santander midfielder due to the situation involving their Xabi Alonso-led B team.
The Real Sociedad B team currently plays in the Spanish Segunda – a division higher than Racing Santander – with the suggestion that Pablo Torre would walk right into the team.
The report also mentions Rangers’ reported interest in the talented Pablo Torre – who has played 17 games, scoring three goals and laying on six assists – with Real Madrid and Valencia also reportedly tailing the Santander youngster.
Real Sociedad have transfer “advantage” over Rangers-linked Pablo Torre
Rangers have been extensively linked to Pablo Torre in recent weeks with a report coming out of Spain suggesting the Gers could pay as little as £1.7m for the midfielder.
There does remain some conjecture surrounding Torre’s potential release clause, with earlier reports that it stood at £4m shot down by Noticias de Gipuzkoa, who claim it’s more like £6.7m.
Whatever the case, the financial issues at Racing Santander appear to suggest that Rangers, Real Sociedad or any Pablo Torre suitors will be able to strike a deal for a cut-price fee.
It’s an exciting transfer link for Rangers fans as the club continue to be mentioned alongside a whole host of talent.
Rangers have already made a move in this transfer window with USA international utility man James Sands joining the club on loan.
The 21-year-old New York City FC defender-turned-defensive-midfielder has joined the Gers on an 18-month loan deal.
However, the move does appear to have upset one Rangers player as an Ibrox star wiped his social media account after Sands was given his squad number.
