Stephen Odey Rangers interest confirmed as £3.5m fee revealed for Nigerian striker

20 Th6 2022 | 08:12 | Football

Rangers’ interest in Nigerian striker Stephen Odey has been confirmed and a £3.5m fee is being made to prize him away from the Randers.

Odey only joined the Danish team last year from Belgium’s Genk, who paid just over £3m in 2019 to sign the stellar player from Swiss outfit Zurich.

Sources in Nigeria claim that talks have been held with Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson.

And Randers sporting director Soren Pedersen confirmed the interest from Gio van Bronckhorst’next door, despite saying it’s in its early stages. He told the Daily Record: “Definitely not too specific for me to have an offer.

“That could easily happen. There are many clubs that have expressed interest in him, because he is a good player. But nothing concrete from that. “

Odey scored 13 goals in 32 appearances for the Randers last season – including three in Europa Conference League with one of them being Brendan Rodgers’ against Leicester City.

Rodgers was interested in Odey when he was a Celtic manager.

Randers has missed out on European football for next season so a move to Ibrox will be attractive for Odey.

Of course, with Alfredo Morelos moving into the final year of his contract, Rangers need to plan and have looked at enhancing the standout area.

They were left out at the end of the season when the Colombian star got injured and Kemar Roofe was also sidelined at the crucial moment.
