Bologna will not consider letting Andreas Skov Olsen leave for less than £7m to £8m, according to The Athletic‘s Rangers’ correspondent Jordan Campbell.
The Danish international has been heavily linked with a switch to Ibrox in the Italian media over the last week, but his price tag makes any deal very unlikely to happen this month.
Supporters on Twitter agree that a move for Olsen during the January transfer window now looks dead in the water:
Cant see us paying 7 to 8

No chance unless we sold aribo or kent

Well we’re not paying £7-8 million for Olsen straight up. Maybe if we could loan him in first.
Only reason we spent that on Kent was because we knew what we were getting.
Ecstatic about the Doekhi news though. Souttar as well would be good business
Watford’s bid is laughable

We need a RW, if its not Olsen it needs to be someone else

Don’t think Olsen was ever realistic although would love it. What about the Dutch winger Gio worked with at Feyenoord?

Rangers aren’t paying 7/8m on one player at this stage I think. Kent was a different time and was tried and tested. Prob better options elsewhere for RW for a more reasonable fee. CBs would be excellent business

We shall have to wait and see whether the Light Blues look at other potential options to strengthen the right flank.
AZ Alkmaar’s Albert Gudmundsson and Anderlecht winger Francis Amuzu are among the other names that have been mentioned as possible targets in recent weeks but it doesn’t appear to be the area of the pitch the club are currently focused on improving.
Centre-backs seem to be at the top of the agenda with Vitesse’s Danilho Doekhi and Hearts’ John Souttar both on the Scottish club’s radar.
