Rangers are set to face Nicolas Raskin competition from enviable Champions League outfit Club Brugge as four sides are named as suitors amid a contract stand-off with Standard Liege.
The midfielder, 21, is out of contract at the end of the season and Rangers were linked with a late move for the player as the summer transfer window slammed shut.
But as Glen Kamara stuck around, any prospective move for Nicolas Raskin fell apart with Standard Liege trying to convince the player to sign a new deal ever since.
Now, Rangers are said to still have an iron in the Raskin fire but they’re not the only ones with the Gers facing substantial competition to sign the player.
Rangers face Champions League competition for Nicolas Raskin
According to a fresh report in the Daily Record, Standard are desperately pushing Raskin for a decision one way or the other as the January window approaches.
The report also quotes Le Soir as claiming that Rangers aren’t the only side interested in signing the Belgian U21 international.
Rangers have been named alongside Belgian champions Club Brugge, Serie A Spezia and Greek giants Olympiacos as being interested in Raskin and it all makes for an interesting few months regarding the player.
Club Brugge certainly pose an interesting option and Rangers can look at the Champions League outfit through envious eyes.
The Belgians have built an impressive squad based on a similar player trading model that Rangers aspire to build and this season qualified out of their Champions League Group.
Rangers can look to Club Brugge for inspiration on the Champions League stage and given Nicolas Raskin is Belgian, they potentially pose the biggest rivals to any Ibrox move for the player.
Meanwhile, one Rangers star has been left in awe at the quality of one of his Chelsea-linked teammates.
