Rangers could receive transfer boost in race to sign Josh Doig

Rangers could still have a chance to bring Josh Doig to Ibrox in the January window after reports from Italian press suggest Hellas Verona could sell him at a lower price. 

According to a report from Tutto Mercato Verona could be “ready to compromise” on their asking price for the 21-year-old due to their financial difficulties.

Daily Record claimed that the Bears retain a firm interest in Doig and they have already made a contact to sign him. The left-back has impressed since joining from Hibs and the Italian club are not keen on losing their key man.

They have set an initial valuation of £5.5m but it appears that they are willing to lower their asking price, as they’re strapped for cash. In case they do, the door could be open for Rangers to sign him.

There are also suggestions that Verona could look to sign Gers defender Ridvan Yilmaz, and in that case, Rangers can look to secure a deal for Doig at a discount rate.

Rangers look to bolster squad

Philippe Clement has made a big impact already and the Gers have already won a trophy so far. They have closed down the gap with Celtic at the top and despite their recent 2-1 defeat in the Old Firm, the Bears are very much alive in the Scottish Premiership title race.

The January window is important for Clement as he will look to stamp his authority. The club have already signed Fabio Silva on loan from Wolves and they are looking to make more additions.

The Bears are also looking to bolster their attacking areas and are considering making a move to sign Vitesse winger Million Manhoef.

Rangers are also targeting Ajax’s Owen Wijndal as a potential alternative if they fail to land Doig. Borna Barisic is out of contract at the end of the season, and the Gers are yet to offer him a new deal.
