Rangers have made an offer for Amiens striker Moussa Konate, according to L’Equipe. The French newspaper reports that the Gers have tabled a €10m (£9.1m) bid for the 26-year-old.
The proposal would make him the second-biggest signing in the Scottish club’s history, behind the £12m they paid Chelsea for Tore Andre Flo in 2000.
Konate’s scoring record for Amiens is pretty decent. During the two seasons he has been with the Ligue One side, he has scored 21 goals in 65 appearances; that is a goal every three games.
Considering Amiens have finished 13th and 15th during his two years at the club, his record is certainly not too bad for a lower to mid-table team in the French top division.
Konate’s performances have previously led to interest from English clubs, including West Ham, but it appears the Light Blues are the only team to have made a formal offer for the Senegalese international.
If Rangers have in fact made such a sizeable bid, it does raise question marks over where the money is coming from. Will Alfredo Morelos have to depart? We shall have to wait and see.
