Atalanta and Roma are eyeing up a move for Glasgow Rangers youngster Ross McCausland, whose performances this season have earned attention from the Italian duo.
That’s according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who say the pair are among ‘numerous clubs’ eyeing up the youngster after his rise at Ibrox this season.
McCausland made his debut for Rangers at the beginning of October in the 3-0 win over St Mirren, with manager at the time Steven Davis electing to bring him in after an injury to Zak Lovelace.
He’s very much a member of Philippe Clement’s squad and that’s earned him attention from Italy, where Atalanta and Roma are ‘monitoring him through their scouts’.
There have been no concrete talks about a move as yet but the fact that McCausland’s contract at Ibrox expires in June 2024 means he ‘could represent an opportunity in January’.
According to TMW, it could take just €450,000 to get him out of Rangers, with that being the figure they’d need to pay if they agreed a pre-contract agreement with him.
The plan is for Roma and Atalanta is to continue monitoring him and how he performs for Rangers between now and January, as Clement seems likely to keep using him before then making a final decision and, if they decide to, trying to convince him to sign.
