Ianis Hagi has been nothing sort of a revelation for Rangers since he joined at Ibrox on loan from Genk. On two occasions now, he has single-handedly dragged back Rangers in the tie and won them the game. Reports from HLN in January stated that Rangers could sign Hagi permanently for £4.2m in the summer.
After his recent performances, he seems set to take centre stage at Ibrox, and most would want him to move permanently in the summer. Steven Gerrard’s assistant Gary McAllister recently indicated that they would look to trigger his buyout clause if he continues to impress.
Gary McAllister talks about signing Hagi
McAllister recently said in one of the press conferences (Rangers Youtube Channel), ” If the lad keeps performing I think it’s something you’ve got to be looking at (permanent move), I would imagine. I think the manager’s got the final say on that. But the thing is he’s impressed all of us so far, and we just want to keep this young man going, keep his confidence high and keep encouraging him to do the things he’s good at.”
What has been impressive about Hagi?
The Romanian seems to be a progressive player as he always looks to make something happen whenever he gets on the ball. Rangers have been guilty of being passive, especially against opponents that sit back but Hagi isn’t always keen on playing safe passes.
He has the vision and ability to open up defences. We still don’t know what his preferred foot might be, and that makes it hard for defenders to keep track of him as he can shift the ball on either side to have a shot at goal. The Romanian also seems to work hard for his team, and he has become a fan favourite in just a handful of appearances.
£4.2m- A bargain?
There is no doubt to us that Gerrard would be licking his lips to get Hagi on a permanent deal in the summer. If the report regarding a £4.2m clause is accurate, then the English manager should definitely trigger it. Hagi is still just 21, and he can improve further with more experience. A few good years at Ibrox could see his value rise immensely.
He also seems to be a versatile player as he can feature in midfield or on the flanks. Rangers spent £7m to bring in Kent this season on a permanent deal, and Hagi at £4.2m seems like a bargain at the moment.
