Rangers are reportedly facing late pressure to sign Yusuf Kabadayi after Besiktas had an offer accepted for the Bayern Munich winger.

The Germany U20 international has been identified as a key target in Philippe Clement's summer rebuild at Ibrox, with the Belgian boss keen to bolster his options at the top end of the pitch. A deal for Kabadayi to make the move for Govan is thought to be close, but reports in Turkey claim that Besiktas, who are now managed by former Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst, are also in the mix to land the player.

Turkish outlet Super Haber claim that a deal has been agreed in principle for Kabadayi, with the 21-year-old now weighing up his options. The source adds that Besiktas' vice president Huseyin Yucel will also play a role in the negotiations in a bid to convince Kabadayi that his future lies in the Turkish capital of Istanbul.

Another forward player who is believed to be on the Gers radar this summer is Rapid Bucharest's Kosovan forward Albion Rrahmani. The 23-year-old netted an impressive 19 goals in 30 matches last season, and just last week the club's new manager, Celtic legend Neil Lennon immediately insisting that Rrahmani won't be going "anywhere".

But the Romanian club's hardline stance on the striker may have softened after they added to their attacking options with the arrival of Slovakian U21 star Timotej Jambor from MSK Zilina. Lennon's side are believed to have forked out £600,000 for the 21-year-old who scored five times in 25 matches last season and featured in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Bucharest have reportedly slapped a price tag of £6.8million on four-time Kosovo cap Rrahmani, who has been thoroughly scouted by Rangers. Slavia Prague are also said to be keen admirers of the player.
