Rangers have been linked with a move for Racing midfielder and Spanish youth international Pablo Torre with Real Madrid also said to be interested.
The Gers are entering their first transfer window under the management of Giovanni van Bronckhorst and the Ibrox gaffer has spoken about the need to remain in a strong place squad-wise come February.
But any move for Racing Santander midfielder Pablo Torre looks towards the summer window with the 19-year-old lighting up the Spanish third-tier.
The Daily Record – the source of the links – claim that Rangers are monitoring the Spain U19 international’s situation amid financial problems that have seen Racing sink so low in Spanish football.
The report also claims that whilst Pablo Torre is contracted to Racing Santander until 2025, the player is said to have a £4m release clause in his contract.
That Record report also discusses reported interest in Pablo Torre from Spain and Italy, including from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Reports in Spain – such as this at Bernabeu Digital – appear to back up this assertion with that report claiming Madrid are “confident” of bringing the player to the capital “sooner or later”.
Rangers transfer ambitions summed up links to likes of Pablo Torre
Pablo Torre has made 17 appearances for Real Racing Club so far this season, netting three goals and laying on six assists for the fallen Spanish club.
Links to the midfielder also come after the Gers were mentioned alongside the likes of PSG wonderkid Xavi Simons, both of which are perhaps symbolic of the ambitions at Ibrox.
At present, Rangers are particularly well-stocked in midfield and would surely need to move some players on to free up room in the middle of the park.
Joe Aribo, Glen Kamara, Steven Davis, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, John Lundstram, Juninho Bacuna, Nnamdi Ofoborh and even Ianis Hagi provide stiff competition in midfield at Ibrox.
Speaking of Rangers linked midfielders, one of the most high-profile has just been subject to interest from divisional rivals of his current side.
