Rangers football club has had a bid of £440,000 for Nicolas Raskin rejected by Standard Liege, as they are seeking a higher amount of around £1.7m, according to Belgian journalist Kevin Sauvage.

The Daily Record reported that Rangers had made a “high six-figure” offer for Raskin, but Sauvage clarified that the bid was actually £440,000.

Rangers FC need to be cautious in negotiations with Standard Liege as Raskin is a talented player and the Belgian club will be looking to receive the correct valuation for him.

Additionally, time is running out in the January transfer window and the club may not have enough time to complete the deal before the deadline.

It’s understandable why Rangers’ first offer was low, it gives them more room to maneuver in negotiations and could allow them to secure a good value deal for the Belgium under-21 international player.

However, time is currently against the Scottish club as the January transfer window has only a matter of days left. The board does not want to see the deal go until deadline day.

Fans are hoping to see more business conducted before the transfer window closes. If Rangers can land Raskin, it would be an impressive first window and Todd Cantwell has already joined the team which is a big injection of quality into the squad.
