The transfer rumour that won’t go away got Rangers fans excited on social media amid claims of a development surrounding Bologna winger Andreas Skov Olsen.
Rangers have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old Denmark international winger all window long with Belgian champions Club Brugge and Danish outfit FC Copenhagen also reportedly interested.
Things appeared to be leading more towards the Belgians as reports coming out of the country suggested Brugge had outbid Rangers interest as their Champions League millions appeared to tell.
Voetbal Krant are even claiming that they’re “almost certain” Skov Olsen will be moving to Belgium.
All of this was then blown apart by the latest claims coming out of Italy which suggested even Club Brugge’s reported bid for Andreas Skov Olsen was not enough.
The Daily Record – claiming to be quoting Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport – say that Bologna have set a €8-9m (£6.7-7.5m) asking price for Skov Olsen with Club Brugge’s €4.5m (£3.8m) bid not currently meeting the Serie A side’s valuation.
But just as Rangers lose Ianis Hagi for the season – the attacking midfielder routinely employed out on the right – Gers fans were thrown a Skov Olsen bone by a Danish fan media editor.
FC Copenhagen insider makes Rangers Skov Olsen bid claim
Kasper Larsen – who runs the leading FC Copenhagen Kvart I Bold fan group on Facebook – claims that Rangers have now matched the Club Brugge bid.
“Hagi (Glasgow Rangers) reportedly injured the rest of the season. Rangers should be desperate to sign ASO, has reportedly matched Club Brugge,” tweets Larsen.
These comments sparked a bit of a frenzy online as Rangers fans started to get excited at the prospect of moving for Skov Olsen.
But this claim has yet to be ratified anywhere other than Larsen with the 4th Official claiming that as things stand, there is “nothing at all close with Rangers” and Bologna over the player, tagging transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano in the process.
Whatever the case, there’s been some fresh life breathed into this rumour and we’re sure this won’t be the last time we’re speaking about it before the transfer window slams shut.
Meanwhile, one reported Rangers target once said to be “almost certain” to be moving to Ibrox has been the subject of £2m interest down south.
