Rangers make fresh bids for Roland Juhasz and Wesley Verhoek
The pair, who play for Anderlecht and ADO Den Haag respectively. are subject to a fresh approach from Ally McCoist's side.
Ally McCoist says Rangers have tabled new bids for Anderlecht defender Roland Juhasz and ADO Den Haag winger Wesley Verhoek.
The Gers manager confirmed on Friday the Ibrox side made their new offers on Wednesday but are yet to hear back from either club.
German international winger David Odonkor, who has been on trial at the club this week, has been allowed to leave but McCoist will take a second look at former Arsenal striker Rhys Murphy, who is currently training at the club.
Verhoek played for ADO in their Europa League exit at the hands of Omonia Nicosia on Thursday night, after which he spoke positively of a possible move to Nottingham Forest.
Rangers have already seen one bid rejected for the 24-year-old but are waiting on an answer from the Eredivisie side, who are understood to be keen to wait until after their weekend match with Vitesse before pressing ahead with transfer business.
The Ibrox club have also failed previously with two offers for Juhasz, with Anderlecht describing their second transfer bid last Thursday as “way below” their valuation.
Juhasz himself is keen on a move to Scotland after six years in Belgium and said on Thursday that Rangers’ Champions League exit hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm.
“For me it does not matter that the Rangers will not play in the Champions League,” he told Sportwereld. “Of course they would have been stronger financially if they had qualified, but I still expect a new bid.”
If Rangers' bid is accepted, Juhasz is likely to be a direct replacement for Madjid Bougherra, who has completed a move to join Qatari side Lekhwiya.
Kyle Bartley became the SPL champions' fourth signing of the summer on Thursday night, returning to the club on loan from Arsenal. Juan Manuel Ortiz, Lee Wallace and Dorin Goian have already moved to Ibrox, with Alejandro Bedoya agreeing pre-contract terms to join in January.
