Rangers manager Steven Gerrard wants to sign Florian Kamberi on loan, but the player and his club Hibernian prefer a permanent move, according to The Scottish Sun.
Rangers loan spell
Kamberi joined Rangers on loan from Scottish Premiership rivals Hibernian in the January transfer window and spent the second half of the past season at Ibrox.
According to WhoScored, the forward made one start and five substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership for the Gers in 2019-20, scoring one goal in the process, as the season was called off early due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Swiss forward also made one start and two substitute appearances in the Europa League for Rangers this past campaign, according to WhoScored.
Back to Rangers?
The Scottish Sun has reported that Rangers want to bring Kamberi back on loan to Ibrox in the summer transfer window.
Manager Gerrard is also reportedly ready to let 23-year-old midfielder Greg Docherty go to Hibernian on a season-long loan deal as part of the deal, just like last time.
However, Hibernian want to sell Kamberi on a permanent basis as he is out of contract at the Easter Road outfit at the end of next season, with the player himself preferring a permanent switch as well, according to the report.
Kamberi is a good forward, but he did not really make a massive impact at Rangers in the games he played, and it would be a risk for the Gers to hand him a permanent deal.
