Rangers’ supporters will have been delighted to get a new striker through the doors at Ibrox before the January window even opened with the arrival of Fabio Silva.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward, who the Premier League club paid a whopping £35 million to sign in 2020, has come in on loan for the rest of the season and is very much a high profile capture for Philippe Clement. Now, the Glasgow club are being linked with another big name attacker who previously commanded a major transfer fee.

Batshuayi, who has been capped over 50 times for the Belgian men’s national team, most notably played for Chelsea between 2016 and 2022 with the Blues having paid French club Marseille a fee in the region of £33 million for his signature. Having began his career with Standard Liege in his homeland he spent a lot of his career on loan away from Stamford Bridge at Borussia Dortmund, Crystal Palace, Valencia and Beşiktaş before signing for Fenerbache in 2022.

There have been plenty of rumours in this window that have dragged on over the past ten days but, according to the report, supporters may not have to wait long for news on the striker with Rangers apparently keen to get a deal agreed in the next 24 hours – before they fly out to a winter training camp in La Manga. However, there is also reported interest in a loan deal from Premier League side Everton, which could throw a spanner in the works, but Rangers are still said to be ‘leading the chase’ ahead of the Merseyside club to sign the striker
