Rangers-linked Serie A wonderkid up for January loan after failed 2020 bid

Serie A side Bologna are open to the idea of loaning one-time Rangers-linked winger Andreas Skov Olsen, according to a report coming out of Italy.

La Repubblica are claiming that Bologna are planning to loan the winger out in January after playing just a touch over 300 minutes this season.

The winger has however been on impressive form for the Danish national team, scoring five goals and laying on three assists in World Cup Qualifying. He has 15 caps for Denmark.

This report will pique the interest of Rangers fans who have been following the winger closely with the Gers repeatedly linked to Andreas Skov Olsen over the last few years.

The highly-rated 21-year-old Danish winger joined the Italian outfit in a €6m (£5.1m) deal in 2019 signing a five-year contract but he has struggled to make an impact at Bologna.

Signed from Danish outfit FC Nordsjælland, Skov Olsen was linked with Rangers prior to the move but he instead opted for a switch to the Italian top flight.

Since then, Rangers have been linked with a loan move for the winger with Gazzetta dello Sport, via Sport Witness, claiming that the Gers launched a loan bid for the player in 2020.

In what could be music to the ears of Rangers supporters, Andreas Skov Olsen has also previously admitted things are not going to plan in Italy.

“It’s not secret that I’m not in the best situation at Bologna,” admits Skov Olsen [Tribal Football].

“It’s not going too well down there, but I need to go back and work hard.”

Rangers and Giovanni van Bronckhorst could offer a very interesting solution to the winger who will be looking to recapture the form which saw Bologna splash out on his services.

The new Gers boss is known to favour attacking, direct wide players and the thought of Ryan Kent on one side and Andreas Skov Olsen on the other will have bluenoses salivating.

Meanwhile, one leading Ibrox star is set to be like a new signing upon his return but his absence highlights one position which should be a transfer priority this January.
