Rangers scouts at Anderlecht game as £3.6m-rated January target plays

Rangers scouts have been spotted taking in the Belgian Pro League match between Anderlecht and Charleroi over the weekend with reported January target Francis Amuzu starting the game.

There has been some conjecture regarding who the Bears representatives were looking at amid reports from Le Soir that the Gers were in attendance at the match.

Rangers weren’t the only ones watching on with some of Europe’s top clubs, such as Ajax, Manchester United, Dortmund, Inter Milan, and Everton, all attending.

With a plethora of young talent on show the watching scouts were treated to a fine game as Vincent Kompany’s side ran out 3-1 winners over Charleroi.

Israeli attacking midfielder Lior Refaelov – familiar to Gers fans from games against Royal Antwerp last season – opened the scoring for Anderlecht with young Spanish talent Sergio Gomez netting a double.

Marco Ilaimaharitra got the goal for Charleroi.

According to the Scotsman, Gomez has been loosely linked to Rangers in the past but could any scouting mission be more associated with Francis Amuzu?

Rewind to January 2021 and Belgian U21 international Francis Amuzu was being heavily linked with a move to Rangers in Belgium.

Belgian outlet Voetbal24 claimed last season that Rangers were considering a substantial bid for the player with Sports World claiming that Francis Amuzu has a £3.6m release clause.

The pacey winger, 22, plays off the right and is of Ghanian descent but his involvement in the Belgian youth set-up is a nod to the potential of the talented youngster.

Francis Amuzu has made 16 league appearances for Anderlecht this season, six of those from the start, and has scored two goals and laid on three assists in the Belgian top flight this campaign.

The Belgian youth international isn’t the only young European winger once linked to Rangers who’s back in the press this week either, with a Serie A wonderkid reportedly available for loan.
