Ianis Hagi has six goals and 11 assists in all competitions for Rangers despite losing out a place in the playing XI for two months earlier in the season.

The forward regained his place with the Ibrox club around mid-December and has retained it since then.

Reports from Scotland on Monday suggested Steven Gerrard’s side will look to sell one of their prized assets in the next market and the 22-year-old gets a mention.

According to Ibrox Noise, the Romania international is valued in excess of £25m plus and the likes of Lazio or Real Madrid can afford to meet these figures for his signing.

Valeriu Răchita was appointed as the director of the scouting department and head of the academy at Astra Giurgiu last month, and he gave his take on the possibility of Hagi leaving Rangers in the summer following the claims.

Răchita is of the belief Fiorentina, who sold Hagi for a small sum in 2018, would be left frustrated and disappointed if Rangers end up earning €30m from their star’s sale.

“If this happens, I believe that all the staff of Fiorentina, plus the sports director, plus the president, will be crucified in the public square in Florence, because they had such a jewel in their team and they let him go for €2m. I would like this to happen, although it seems unlikely,” Răchita told

Hagi’s current deal with Rangers will run until June 2024.
