Rangers first transfer of the summer could be done in ‘next few days’

.Rangers may complete Oscar Cortes’ permanent transfer this week, citing a report

In January, the Colombian winger went on loan from Lens, a team in Ligue 1.

An option to purchase was included in the agreement.

The 22-year-old had a strong start at Ibrox, but after suffering an injury on February 28 during a 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock, he has not played.

He won’t play this season as Philippe Clement’s team looks to achieve a treble, with the Scottish Cup and Premiership title still up for grabs.

It was confirmed by the manager last week that talks were ongoing between the clubs and Cortes’ representative about a move.

However, the Belgian stated that a deal would only be completed if the price was right, as this wasn’t set in stone from the outset.

Now, it appears the clubs are close to an agreement, with a deal set to be thrashed out over the next few days.

According to CanalRCN: “It is expected that in the coming days, conversations will take place between both clubs to determine whether Cortés will remain at Rangers or return to France.”

It continues: “The next few days will be crucial to define the future of Óscar Cortés and know if he will continue his career at Rangers or if he will return to Lens in France.”

Recently, Clement stated: “We are discussing the issue with Lens since it is different from what it was when he was fit.

“He was exhibiting the correct traits while he was fit, but it was just temporary. Then, the price must be appropriate.

Ryan Jack’s participation between now and May 25 is still up in the air, while Clement last week ruled out Cortes and Danilo for the season.
