Rangers transfer diary as Xavi Simons option remerges after PSG stumbling block and Joe Aribo holds key focus


Gio van Bronckhorst will no doubt have a lengthy list of targets this summer.

After reaching the Europa League Final and lifting the Scottish Cup the Ibrox boss has plenty of credit in the bank with Rangers fans.

And now he has his sights set on reclaiming the league title.

Gio will have passed sporting director Ross Wilson his transfer wish list as he looks to put his own stamp on the club.

Xavi Simons is a name that has caught the imagination of fans when he was linked with a sensational move to Rangers.

The midfielder is a free agent having left Paris Saint-Germain, but reportedly remains in contact over an extension this summer.

However, Mundo report that Simons has yet to agree a new deal as he wants assurances over a first-team spot next term.

Van Bronckhorst is reportedly a huge admirer with Barcelona also reportedly monitoring the situation.

In terms of outgoings, Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo have both been heavily linked with a move to the English Premier League.

Playmaker Aribo has been touted as a target for both Crystal Palace and Brentford this summer as he approaches the final year of his contract.

Bassey on the other hand has been linked with a big-money reunion with Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.

But before they return for pre-season there is plenty of business on the park to take care of with Nigeria.

Two AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe await before they report back to Auchenhowie.

The last fixture of the double header takes place on June 13.

Elsewhere, Amad Diallo set social media alight when he posted a snap of himself during his Rangers loan.

Fans were quick to predict that meant a return north of the border from Manchester United, and he does appear to be on the way out of the club this summer.

Foot1 report Lyon winger Rayan Cherki is a top target for United this summer, with Diallo potentially heading in the opposite direction on loan.
