£35M Player Vows To “Do Everything” To Seal Summer Rangers Switch If Conditions Are Met

Rangers loanee Fabio Silva says there is a chance that he could move to Ibrox on a permanent basis.

Speaking after scoring against Hibernian in the Scottish Cup at the weekend, the Portuguese forward expressed a desire to “do everything” he could to seal a transfer if he has a successful loan spell in Glasgow:

“This is not the most important thing now, we also have two months of football to win titles. I think after that if you win titles and everything’s going the right way, Rangers and me will do everything for me to stay.”

Silva has had a decent start to life in Scotland, having scored 4 goals in his first 13 appearances since joining from English Premier League side Wolves back in January.

However, you do feel that the 21-year-old will have to finish the season in spectacular form to convince the Gers to shell out a sizeable fee for him.

Silva’s price tag is the main obstacle

Wolves signed the striker for a hefty £35m back in 2020 and they are unlikely to be keen on taking a sizeable hit by offloading him for a low fee.

Considering Silva has struggled to perform since moving to England, though, Wolves may be willing to make some sort of loss but the amount could still be way above Rangers’ price range.

Rangers could prioritise signing another forward first

Abdallah Sima may be sidelined with injury but the Senegalese international has had an impressive campaign for the Light Blues, scoring 15 times in 33 appearances.

Manager Philippe Clement has already expressed an interest in buying the 22-year-old from Brighton and, if the Gers have to choose between signing Sima and Silva, you would think that they would devote their resources to securing the former’s signature. We shall have to wait and see how things pan out when the summer transfer window opens.
