Rangers have reportedly asked for the availability of free agent Erik Botheim.
With the conflict between Russia and Ukraine coming with its fair share of negative implications, Botheim’s contract with Krasnodar has been terminated after only joining the side in January.
In his writing, Jonas Adnan Glaever, a Norwegian journalist, has claimed that Rangers have, at least, picked up the phone to enquire about the possible move of the striker.
“It’s true that Rangers at least have enquired about Erik Botheim. Remains to be seen whether that leads to an offer or not.”
Vital Rangers were the first to highlight the situation in Botheim before he was linked to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s charges.
The 22-year-old gem had 22 goals and 10 assists in 46 appearances for Bodo/Glimt before sealing a move to Krasnodar in January.
Rangers will be making a good gamble on his signature even though he is yet to make a senior level debut for Norway. Botheim has a bright future ahead of him with the fact that he is the captain of the Norway Under-21s.
The promising forward could emulate Alfredo Morelos and score loads of goals on his way to becoming a fan favourite at Rangers.
He can also be developed at Ibrox and later be released at a high profit fee for the great benefit of the Scottish Premiership club.
