Rangers tipped to accept £17m Hagi offer as officials in contact - Hutton

Alan Hutton has suggested Rangers would be willing to sell Ianis Hagi for £17million during the January transfer window.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender claimed clubs would be circling Ibrox for the 22-year-old after his standout performances for both club and country.

As quoted by the Scottish Sun (5th October), former Romania and Dortmund star Marcel Raducanu revealed the German FA requested a scouting dossier on Hagi ahead of their World Cup qualifier.

Raducanu also detailed how German officials asked about transfer links between the Rangers star and Italian heavyweights Roma.

As reported by Romanian news outlet Sport.ro in September, Roma are hoping to sign Hagi for £17million (€20million) in January.

Hutton admitted Rangers would likely sell up at that sort of price tag.

However, he suggested there would be more than just Jose Mourinho’s side in the hunt.

The Rangers TV pundit told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “He’s come into Rangers and done well. He gives them something different, technically he’s very good.

“Of course, there are things that you can do better. There are situations where you can probably run back and work harder or whatever.

“But when you have the performance level that he’s showing, whether it be Europe the league, or international, there’s going to be people watching you.

“For one so young to play that high level, there’s going to be teams surrounding you for your signature or whatever.

“I’ve always said that I think if the price is right, Rangers will sell. If the money that’s floating about, £17million, if that comes to fruition I think it’s probably a marker that Rangers would sell at.”

Hagi has scored 13 goals and contributed 19 assists in 68 appearances for the Gers.
