Ianis Hagi has been dominating Sport Witness’ Rangers coverage over the past few months with endless claims from Belgium, Romania and Italy about where he’ll play next season.
Genk allowed the Romania international to join Rangers on loan in the winter market and the Glasgow club retain an option to make the transfer permanent.
The 21-year-old has managed three goals and two assists in all competitions for Rangers and his performances have attracted interest from Lazio.
Het Belang van Limburg now explains Steven Gerrard’s side have until the end of this month to make a decision on the attacking midfielder.
It’s claimed the Scottish Premiership side want to keep the player ‘on board’ and they will have to pay €5m to the Jupiler Pro League club to make Hagi’s transfer permanent.
Rangers are keen on keeping Hagi and to achieve it, they are negotiating the payment methods with Genk, suggesting they could spread the payments.
The clock is ticking for Rangers as the report adds they will have until May 31st to exercise the purchase option to sign Hagi.
