With Rangers’ problem position having been right wing for some considerable time, Ibrox Noise has been preaching Bologna’s Andrea Skov Olsen for about the same period.
Just 21, and part of the Denmark squad for the Euros, the promising young winger, who’s managed two appearances for his country this summer, has a market value of less than Ryan Kent cost, but far superior experience at the same age as Rangers’ main left winger.
True, his stats in Italy haven’t been staggering (3 goals in 52 plus 3 assists) but back in his FC Nordsjaelland days in his homeland, it’s 27 in 51, which for a then teenage winger was outstanding.
He reminds us of the potential of Alfredo Morelos – excelling brilliant in a Scandinavian country which made the world take notice. In Skov Olsen’s case, he probably got the wrong move too early, and while he has shown his class in Bologna’s shirt, he hasn’t really had enough opportunities (just 19 starts in two seasons).
But of course, with Rangers’ excellent relationship with the Italians as a result of the acquisition of Filip Helander (he also struggled in and out of the same side) there may be scope to go for the Danish winger.
He’s been a long-lasting link, and yes, the likelihood of this one may have dimmed in the past year, but there’s no denying his talent and he’d be an outstanding addition on the right and really would solve that RW issue.
Could still happen?
