Exciting Rangers-linked African international available for a 'small amount' - report

Rangers-linked Algeria international Zinedine Ferhat is available for a ‘small amount’ this summer, according to a Le10Sport report.

The Gers, Sassuolo and Saint-Etienne were all credited with interest in Ferhat in May by Foot Mercato.

Yet, earlier this month, citing French outlet TER, the Daily Record asserted that Ferhat is set to stay in France this summer, with Marseille leading the race for his signature.


In this update from Le10Sport, Marseille are once again credited with interest in the ‘fast, technical and punchy’ player.

However, while it’s stated that OM and Lyon are two of several French clubs interested in his signature, no formal offers appear to have been made.

Interestingly, a price tag of sorts is mentioned, though.

The report claims that Ferhat will be allowed to leave recently-relegated Nimes for a ‘small amount’ which is qualified as being under €5m (£4.27m).

At this stage, it’s unclear whether or not Rangers would be prepared to pay multi-million-pound transfer fees in this window, without a valuable asset or two being moved on first.

A fee of around £4m appears to be pretty reasonable for a player who scored six goals and notched ten assists in Ligue 1 last season, though, so if the funds are available, this could be an option worth exploring.

Big clubs like Marseille and Lyon would take some beating in transfer race, but Champions League football is a possibility at Ibrox next season and the lure of playing under Gerrard has also been a key factor for multiple transfer coups in recent times.

Rangers have also been linked with a striker labelled the ‘new Erling Haaland’ but a European club have reportedly already tabled a bid of £4m.
