Glasgow Rangers are considering trying to permanently sign young sensation Ianis Hagi by activating his release clause, as per Daily Record.
The Gers are having a strong season but their recent dip in form left them 10 points behind league leaders Celtic, despite the fact that they also have a game in hand.
The 21-year-old Hagi is currently spending a six-month-long loan with the Scottish giants from Belgian club KRC Genk, where he is proving to be a real sensation.
Therefore, as per the latest report, Rangers hierarchy is pretty impressed with the youngster’s overall performances and is now considering activating his buyout clause, which is reportedly £4 million.
That kind of buyout clause is bound to attract a lot of interest considering the fact that he is also a Romania international.
Hagi has represented Rangers in six matches in all competitions where he already has three goals to his name and provided an assist as well.
Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister has also hinted that the club will look to make the young star’s move permanent if he keeps on performing the way he is doing so far.
“If the lad keeps performing then it’s something we’ve got to be looking at it (to exercise the option to buy),” McAllister was quoted by Daily Record.
“I am party to that decision but the manager has the final say. But he’s impressed all of us and we want to keep this young man going and keep his confidence high.”
Hagi was Rangers’ hero in midweek as the Ibrox side came back from two goals down to beat Braga 3-2 in the Europa League.
The Romanian netted twice in the comeback and is already become a Gers fans’ favourite.
Rangers are back in domestic action on Sunday, with a trip to face St Johnstone on the agenda for Steven Gerrard’s men.
