Lazio have been linked with an attempt to sign Ianis Hagi this summer for a fee of just €10M, according to Italian press.

The midfielder, one of the best-performing players in 2021, has delivered with assists and goals this campaign, and his stock has certainly risen.

Not only that, but he’s a title winner now with Rangers and his name alone makes his signature lucrative, but young Ianis is backing up the family pride with performances on the pitch, and is impressing.

Impressing enough that long-term courters, Lazio, are said to be preparing a bid for his services which, we’d argue, is something a touch below a Romanian international of his quality should really fetch.

While notions of £25M might veer on the slight side of optimism, €10M is definitely something below what the club would expect for a player who may be edging into the serious realms of yet more big clubs and leagues, with Real Madrid also looking at him.

Hagi is a talent, and if Rangers do consider selling, it will be on our terms, and certainly not below his value.

  1. Hagi is a talented footballer but I don’t think he is suited to the hustle and bustle of Scottish football. Unless of course he can get a run as a central number 10 where he might flourish. While his stats are admittedly good I always feel we are a bit weaker with him in the team. And I don’t agree that his recent form has been particularly impressive. I reckon a £8-9m fee with a healthy sell on fee would represent a good return on our £3m investment.
