The Rangers are expected to finalize the signing of the Oostende Fashion Sakala attacker this week, according to the Daily Record.

The long-awaited raid is said to be nearing completion, and the Rangers are already making plans for the upcoming season.

The Rangers have been linked with Sakala for months, and the Daily Record suggested in April that Sakala was in advanced talks to join the Gers.

Now, it looks like Sakala will sign a pre-contract deal with Rangers and confirm himself as a Gers player for next season and beyond, making history in the process: he will become the first Zambian international to play in the Scottish Premiership.

The Rangers have used the pre-contract market for years, with players like Josh Windass, Matt Crooks, Jordan Jones and Glen Kamara signing such deals.

Nnamdi Ofoborh has done the same and will arrive this summer when his contract with Bournemouth expires. Jack Simpson and Scott Wright also signed pre-contract deals, but like Kamara, they ended up arriving early.

So what do the Rangers get in Sakala? Well, he is a fast and dangerous attacker with good movement, and he has excelled this season with 13 goals for Oostende.

The Zambian did not enjoy much success in Russia with Spartak Moscow, but he went to Belgium to hone his craft and is leaving as a much better player.

The Rangers can face him up front or wide open, and having signed Kemar Roofe from Belgian soccer last summer, they will hope Sakala can have a similar impact.

It appears the Rangers are just days away from securing a bargain addition for the summer, and with Jermain Defoe’s contract nearing expiration, Sakala, who has a similar framework, appears to be the replacement for the reduced price at Ibrox.
