Rangers transfer target Toumani Diagouraga has handed in a formal transfer request at Griffin Park, verifying that the midfield colossus wishes to hook up with his former manager Mark Warburton at Rangers.
The 28 year old Frenchman was left out of the most recent Brentford squad with his manager claiming there was ‘nothing to it’ and he was just being rested.
But it is now clear the defensive player wishes to leave Griffin Park and sign on at Ibrox under his former chief Warbs.
Rangers have had one bid of around £100,000 rejected by the English Championship cracks, with a conjectured £500,000 mooted as enough to prise the player away.
But with Diagouraga now handing in a request, it gives further incentive for the deal to go ahead and as long as Rangers offer enough the transfer should go ahead.
Diagouraga was linked to Ibrox last summer but nothing concrete came of the interest. This bid and transfer request have taken the interest up a much higher notch and it seems like only a matter of time before Warburton gets his man.
