Antonio Colak appears to be inching closer to a switch to Rangers with a second bid said to have made to PAOK.

Greek journalist, Georgios Sideridis, based in the city of Thessaloniki where the Croatian currently plies his trade, provided an update earlier on Thursday as below.

It appears clear that an agreement on the fee is close, with little chance of Rangers being priced out on this one.

With Gio van Bronckhorst’s men set to return to pre-season training on Monday, a new face or two over the weekend would be a welcome boost, but additions will follow over the next couple of weeks.

This follows on from a previous personal contribution from Sideridis last night, that he believed it would take an amount closer to €3 million to seal the deal.

In terms of €2.5mil, that equates to around £2.15mil and given the recent fee agreed with Young Boys for Cedric Itten, it would mean a difference of less than one million would be required in order to land the former Malmo striker.

On those terms, it’s a no brainer for the three times capped, German-born Croatia international. The 28-year old has had something of a nomadic career to date, but with enough evidence of his ‘late bloomer’ credentials, he has the quality and the attributes to follow in a line of Croats who enjoyed some of the best days of their careers at Ibrox.

We all still remember the Malmo debacle last year, from a Rangers perspective, with Colak front and centre, inflicting the damage in Glasgow.

Very soon, he could be aiming for more of the same.
