Rangers are closing in on a £1.8million agreement for PAOK Salonika striker Antonio Colak.

Giovanni van Bronckhurst wants to add to his attacking options after Cedric Itten and Amad Diallo moved on at the end of the season.
PAOK Salonika striker Antonio Colak is closing in on a £1.8m summer move to join Rangers
Manager Giovanni van Bronckhurst has made bolstering his attacking options the priority
Now entering the final year of his contract, Alfredo Morelos has also been linked with an £8m move to Spanish side Seville.
And Colak, who scored twice when Malmo knocked Rangers out of the Champions League in the third qualifying round last summer, is the Dutchman’s first pick to strengthen his attacking options.
Reports in Greece on Wednesday claimed that the Scottish Cup holders had a second bid for the 28-year-old rejected.
Rangers insist they have submitted just one bid, already accepted, and that personal terms are now agreed with the striker.

Capped three times for Croatia, Colak is expected to get the green light to move to Scotland as soon as PAOK feel the time is right.
Sent on loan to Malmo last season the forward scored 19 goals for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side before returning to Greece. His first team options limited Colak scored just twice in the second half of the season.
The striker’s arrival is likely to trigger an intense period of transfer window activity.
