According to the Daily Record via AS, La Liga club Sevilla are interested in on-loan Rangers playmaker Ianis Hagi, who has previously expressed a desire to play in Spain.

Hagi joined the Gers on loan from Belgian side Genk in January and has been a hit with the Ibrox faithful.

He hasn’t quite stamped his authority on the Premiership as yet, but he’s sparkled in European competition, scoring a brace in the remarkable 3-2 win over Braga in February.

The Gers have an exclusive option to buy the 21-year-old in the summer, but with the global health crisis causing financial uncertainty, sporting director Ross Wilson says the club haven’t yet made a decision.

With that in mind, it’s said that Sevilla, who currently sit third in the La Liga table, are interested in moving for him.

The AS report, picked up by the Daily Record, claims that the Andalusian club are excited by the player’s age and relatively small asking price, believed to be in the region of £4 million.

Verdict

Given the way Hagi has performed for the Gers in the Europa League, it’s little surprise that big clubs are being linked with him.

 

Lazio are already said to be on high alert and now Julen Lopetegui’s Sevilla.

Hagi has previously admitted a desire to play in Spain at some point in his career, as he believes the highly technical league would suit his style of play [Daily Record].

However, Bears will be encouraged by recent comments made by Gheorghe Popescu, the current chairman of Hagi’s former club, Viitorul Constanta.

He fully expects the Romanian international to move to Ibrox permanently in the coming months, asserting that Rangers will be his no.1 option no matter what other offers come in [Gazeta Sporturilor].
