Rangers were linked with Oscar Gloukh once upon a time, and he could now land himself a huge Premier League move.

We have previously talked about some of the players Rangers looked into signing but gone on to shine elsewhere.

PSV Eindhoven midfielder Joey Veerman springs to mind, as does defender Danilho Doekhi, who seemed to be heading towards Rangers before joining Union Berlin and becoming a star in Germany.

Nice striker Terem Moffi is a less-known case; Het Laatste Nieuws in Belgium suggested that Rangers refused to pay £4.5million to sign Moffi from Kortrijk, and he just demolished Paris Saint-Germain a few days ago.

Then there is goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic, with FootMercato reporting in 2020 that Rangers were keen.

The Serbian moved on to New England Revolution and now Chelsea, so Rangers have missed out on some pretty decent talent over the years.

Rangers were linked with signing Oscar Gloukh

Another name in that mix is Oscar Gloukh with Rangers heavily linked in the past.

Rangers were thought to be scouting Gloukh in action for Maccabi Tel Aviv, as we covered back in 2022.

Gloukh had impressed for Maccabi but also with Israel at the Under-19 European Championships, firing his country to the final against England.

The Gers were quoted around £8million but, even after selling Calvin Bassey, no deal was done with Rangers seemingly deciding not to bite.

Premier League elite now want Gloukh

Rangers may now regret that decision with Gloukh attracting Premier League interest.

Gloukh left Maccabi in January of this year, securing himself a move to Austria with Red Bull Salzburg.

The 19-year-old – hailed as a ‘fantastic’ player by Israel captain Eli Dasa – is showing big potential and is now wanted by the Premier League elite.

The Sun report that Arsenal and Manchester United scouted Gloukh during the international break as he scored for Israel against Romania.

Premier League clubs seem to be eyeing up Gloukh for a 2024 move, as long as he keeps up his decent start to the season with Red Bull Salzburg.

One thing seems certain; Rangers have missed the boat on Gloukh and there is little chance of seeing him in the famous blue shirt at Ibrox any time soon.
