Scottish Premiership side Rangers are in talks to sign Cameroonian goal poacher Jean Pierre Nsame, African Football HQ has learnt from Kick442.com.
Scottish giants Rangers are willing to offer Young Boys €4.2M for Nsame’s services.
and hopes the two-time Swiss Super League winner could leave Young Boys this summer.
Ranger’s gaffer and former England international Steven Gerrard has held talks with the Cameroonian attacker and is keen to lure the potent finisher to the Ibrox Stadium as possible replacement for Alfredo Morelos – who’s linked to Lille as a Victor Osimhen replacement.
Morelos, 24, scored 12 goals in 26 games for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership last season as they finished runners-up to Celtic.
The departure of the Columbian striker who penned a three year deal with Rangers in 2017 from HJK can likely give Steven Gerrard reasons to bring in the established Cameroonian striker to strengthen his side as they gear up to clinch their first Scottish Premiership title since 2010-2011.
Nsame has notched 30 goals in 30 league games in the Swiss top flight league so far this season. With just two games to the end of the championship, the former Servette forward is bracing up to become the league’s top scorer and close to help his side win their third straight domestic title.
He is the first Cameroonian to score 30 goals in a European league after Samuel Eto’o but could set a new record if he scores in his two next fixtures against FC Sion and St Gallen respectively.
Nsame, 27, joined Young Boys on a five year deal in 2017. He has also attracted interest from Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and AS Saint Etienne.
It seems that Steven Gerrard is keen on bringing Africans to Glasgow. Yesterday, AFHQ reported that Rangers agreed terms with French side Amiens over the transfer of Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu.
