Rangers are understood to be open to offers for Antonio Colak, with Michael Beale deciding the German-born Croat is expendable, while not overtly on the transfer list, will be sold if a decent offer arrives.
Beale is said to have made his mind up over the striker situation, and while he’s content with Cyriel Dessers and Sam Lammers (and Abdallah Sima, Kemar Roofe and Fashion Sakala), ideally wants one more dynamic hitman up top, and is eying Feyenoord’s Danilo as that man.
He has decided Colak, while liked and valued, doesn’t quite fit with the type of Rangers he wants, and albeit not outright ditching the ex-Malmo hitman, is open to selling him to facilitate the addition of the Brazilian, who remains keen to come.
It’s not a critical priority, Beale is fairly happy with his resources up front, but sees Danilo as the final piece of the attacking jigsaw if something can be arranged within Rangers’ budget for the Feyenoord man.
As Ibrox Noise reported, the club pulled out of the previous transaction, deeming that the submitted offer, that the De Kuip giants rejected, was enough for now, and any additional resources for a further bid would come from sales.
Long story short, Colak is likely to be sold with offers incoming from Bremen and across the continent, while Rangers would look to that for further budget for Danilo.
But it remains lower priority than a defender and midfielder.
We will have updates on those two over the course of today.
