If the report from the Daily Record is believed to be true, Rangers are keeping close tabs on Senou Coulibaly who has impressed with Dijon despite the side’s disastrous Ligue 1 form. They are rock bottom in the standings with only two wins across all season, but the centre-half has been their brightest spark since securing a regular status midway through the campaign.
The 26-year-old Frenchman joined Dijon back in the summer of 2018 from fourth-tier Mantes. The Owls escaped relegation on back to back occasions since Coulibaly’s transfer. However, their survival is unattainable this time around unless a miracle takes place in the coming days.
The Bears, meanwhile, are well equipped defensively with Connor Goldson and Filip Helander delivering masterclass week in week out. Leon Balogun adds depth as well as experience in the heart of the backline, whereas the talented Nikola Katic is desperate to reclaim his place having missed out on almost a year of football. The Croatian is back on the pitch overcoming a horror knee injury and the decision is yet to be made over George Edmundson’s future who joined Derby County on loan this winter in order to attain regular game-time.
Why Both Parties Must Analyze The Situation Before Any Potential Transfer
Coulibaly, on the other hand, was handed a fringe role in his first two years at Stade Gaston Gérard. He showed great patience though for opportunities and utilized the same when handed. The big centre-back netted twice in his 17 league outings, his highest appearance so far in a single season donning the Dijon colours.
Although Huddersfield Town are also monitoring his situation, the profile of Rangers is more fascinating with Champions League football up for the grabs. His pace and tackling traits must have impressed the Gers’ scouts who have been spot on since Steven Gerrard’s appointment as the Ibrox chief.
Having said that, the player needs to improve a few aspects of his game to make it big in Scotland. In spite of being 6 ft 4 in tall, Coulibaly lacks the aerial composure. His passing trait is not accurate enough, also the disciplinary record remains a concern considering the aggressiveness of Scottish football. Someone in his mid-twenties must seek assured minutes over a sporadic status and Rangers are, therefore, unlikely to offer him the first-team role if a deal is struck in the upcoming months.
