Rangers make bid for La Liga striker


Rangers are currently fourth in the Scottish Premiership.

Steven Gerrard’s side have, of course, played just once this season, and they won the game.

They beat Aberdeen 1-0 on the opening weekend of the 2020/21 season, but Hibernian are currently top, having won two of their two games – beating Kilmarnock and Livingston.

Rangers will be out to continue their 100% record on Sunday, taking on St Mirren in their first encounter of the season at Ibrox.

They are in a rather strange situation, though, with the transfer window currently underway and continuing alongside the Premiership.

It appears that they are making attempts to strengthen their squad in this window, too, with targets identified.


Sport Witness carries a report from AS claiming that they are interested in signing Sekou Gassama, the Real Valladolid striker.

The 25-year-old joined Valladolid in January from UD Almeria and was subsequently loaned out to CF Fuenlabrada, where he has spent the remainder of the campaign.

Across nine games, he has scored three goals for the club, and it appears that the Gers made an offer for the forward.


They tabled a bid of €3 million (£2.7m) for the striker but Valladolid have rejected the offer.

Rangers have signed two strikers this week, acquiring Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten, so it remains to be seen if they will up their up their offer for Gassama.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

It feels as though the club were casting their net far and wide in search of a striker.

They have signed both Itten and Roofe and buying Gassama too feels slightly like overkill.

He is not a young striker, and he has been unable to really make his mark in Spain.


The former Senegal U20 international has only ever played in the second-tier in Spain, scoring nine goals in 34 games, and one has to wonder if he would be able to score goals in Scotland.

Signing Itten and Roofe is enough to strengthen Gerrard’s forward line.

There needn’t be a follow up for the Valladolid forward.
