Kenny tips Rangers to make huge Hagi profit as Champions League club ready reported bid
Rangers will happily sell Ianis Hagi if they receive a mega-money offer this summer.
That is according to ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Romanian television network Pro X reported that Lazio are prepared to offer up to £12million for the attacking midfielder.
Hagi, 22, signed for Rangers for £3m in the summer after spending the second half of the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Ibrox.
The Scottish Sun reported in May that Lazio were keen on the 16-time Romania international before he put pen to paper with Rangers.
Kenny insists that Rangers will view Hagi’s potential sale as a business transaction and that a £12m offer might simply be too good to turn down.
“Looking from a business point of view, I think they’ll consider it,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“That’s how you’ve got to think when you’re running a business. That’s a lot of money, £12m. It might be really hard to turn down, looking at it in terms of the numbers.
“He’s not always a starting player. If he’s not 100 per cent pivotal to the team, it could be one that they move on, take the money and use the money elsewhere.”
Hagi has featured 39 times across all competitions this season, scoring seven goals and laying on 12 assists.
He has previous experience of playing in Serie A after spending one-and-a-half seasons with Fiorentina between 2016 and 2018.
