CSKA Sofia midfielder Kristiyan Malinov has prioritised a switch to Rangers ahead of other clubs, according to reports in the Scottish media.
The Bulgarian international’s agents are said to be working very hard to get their client a move to Ibrox but the Light Blues are yet to make a formal bid for the player.
The general manager of CSKA Sofia, Stoycho Stoilov, confirmed last week that no team had tabled a proposal for Malinov, but it is believed that the 26-year-old would be sold if a club offered in the region of €2m (£1.8m).
It would make the Bulgarian a cheaper alternative to the likes of Amiens’ Bongani Zungu and Brest’s Haris Belkebla but it does appear that the Gers are still weighing up their options.
What is clear, though, is Malinov is very keen on a move to the Scottish club if they do make an offer for the midfielder.
