Rangers are said to have been stung into action by the slow start on the pitch and have made enquiries about signing Denis Bouanga from St Etienne.

After the loss of Ryan Kent left Rangers’ UCL chances on a knife edge, the board and Giovanni van Bronckhorst are now looking into options to provide proper competition for Kent, and a potential successor should the Englishman leave.

Rangers’ lethargic performance in Belgium without Kent was alarming and club bosses are keen to strengthen that area of the pitch now.

Bouanga is an impressive CV – valued in the £10M range, he’d cost a third to half of that due to being in the last year of his contract, and he’s a massive Gabon cap with 32, and has impressive stats for a long-term Ligue 1 player.

125 top flight French outings, 35 goals, 16 assists at that kind of level is worth decent money in this market, and his numbers last campaign at that level were good too – 9 goals 6 assists in 37 appearances in the French Premier League.

The 27 year old would be a very strong signing indeed, and very much along the lines of what Rangers need to improve into CL territory.

This is an extremely talented player and well worth a potential £3M-£5M investment.

He’s also extremely versatile – while LW is his main slot, he’s been extremely comfortable at RW, RM, LM and even striker.

An all-round quality player who wouldn’t cost the earth.

Not unlike Yilmaz.

Rangers’ activity in the transfer market isn’t quite done yet we don’t think.

  1. Are you not afraid this mite possibly mean Kent has refused th contract and we mite be forced into selling and replacing Kent, I hope not

  2. I think this rumour if true could be Ryan Kents exit. Aston Villa are supposed to be preparing a bid for Kent. It would be a great loos but , both he and Barasic could be looking to their futures.
