Rangers lead the race to sign PSG youth prospect
The 18-year-old’s future is attracting considerable attention as he enters the final months of contract.
Rangers “lead the race” to sign Paris Saint-Germain youngster Xavi Simons, according to a report.
The 18-year-old Dutchman’s future remains up in the air as he enters the final six months of his contract with the Ligue 1 giants.
Come the New Year, Simons will be free to negotiate a pre-contract with other clubs and Gio van Bronckhorst has been credited with an interest in his countryman.
Furthermore, Spanish outlet AS report Rangers have already entered talks with his agent, Mino Raiola.
The report also states van Bronckhorst has personally pursued the teenager’s signature.
He previously played for Barcelona and is said to have grown unhappy in the French capital, having joined from the Catalans in 2019.
Capturing his signature would be a considerable coup for the Premiership champions, given interest in Simons is only likely to mount in the coming months.
Rangers are also understood to have identified Racing Santander’s teenage midfielder Pablo Torre as a potential target – but Real Madrid and clubs in Serie A are also tracking the 18-year-old.
