Glasgow Rangers are closing in on a loan move for the exciting Racing Genk star Ianis Hagi, according to media outlet HLN Sport.
The Gers are looking to do some late business in the transfer window, as they bid to end the dominance of rivals Celtic at the head of Scottish football, and have identified a man who can help them in that quest.
That is Romanian midfielder Hagi, son of the great Gheorghe Hagi, who Rangers are close to confirming a loan move for, with the option of making it permanent at the end of the season.
Should the 21-year-old complete a move to Ibrox, the Gers will be getting someone with plenty of experience, with him having already featured 19 times for Genk this term, contributing three goals and four assists to their cause.
Creativity in the Rangers midfield has been a key requirement for Steven Gerrard in this transfer window and after a lot of searching, he finally appears to have his man.
Hagi will head to Glasgow full of motivation, not just to impress at his new club, but also to force his way into the plans of the Romania set up for the Olympic Games, which takes place in Tokyo this summer.
If everything goes to plan, the talented midfielder could be in line to make his debut when the Gers host Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
