Rangers have made a significant move towards luring Antonio Colak to Ibrox. Sky Sports report that a transfer fee and personal terms have been agreed upon for the PAOK Thessaloniki striker.
Rangers had already made a big bid for a player who stood out in a European match against the Glasgow giants.
Borna Barisic was acquired by Steven Gerrard because the left-back gave the Gers’ backline a plethora of headaches during a Europa League qualifying match against NK Osijek four years prior. Ten months after ending Rangers’ Champions League hopes, Colak is inclined to join his fellow Croatian international at Ibrox.
Sky reports that Rangers have agreed to a £1.8 million fee. Whether that covers the entire fee is uncertain. Alternatively, the amount that will be paid in full up front with bonuses that kick in later.
According to other publications, PAOK wants more than the £2.5 million they gave Rijeka two years ago.
Clearly, the 28-year-old center-forward made an impact on the Scottish Premiership runners-up. In August 2021, it was his devastating double that propelled ten-man Malmo past Rangers and into the Champions League group stages. But it seems that Colak was also left with a strong impression by the Rangers.
