Florian Kamberi is keen to convert his Rangers loan into a permanent move – and wants the deal done next month.

The Swiss-Albanian centre-forward, 25, made nine appearances for the Light Blues since joining on loan from Hibernian in January.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Kamberi regards a full-time Rangers move as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” he does not want to pass up.

That is what the Scottish giants and manager Steven Gerrard will want to hear as they assess whether to proceed with negotiations.

There is no option to buy clause included in Kamberi’s loan, unlike the Ianis Hagi deal that became a full-time transfer from Belgian side Genk earlier this week.

It is the same for the loan transfer of Greg Docherty, who moved to Hibernian in part-exchange for Kamberi.

The forward showed encouraging signs during his six weeks in the Rangers team before the pandemic ended the Scottish season in mid-March.

He led the line impressively for Rangers as they defeated Braga to reach the Europa League last-16, and followed that up by scoring his a brilliant first goal for the club in a 2-2 draw with St Johnstone.

Kamberi is a 6ft 2in striker who scored eight goals in 27 appearances for Hibernian in the first half of this season.

He was even more effective in his debut campaign last term, when his 43 matches yielded 13 goals and seven assists.
