Rangers reportedly hoping to part ways with wantaway star to land English veteran

As per Daily Record, Rangers are keen to quickly offload 36-year-old centre-back Bruno Alves in order to go ahead with the pursuit of Norwich City defender Russell Martin.

The Portugal international is back home presently as he recuperates from a calf injury, and he is wanted in Qatar having expressed his willingness to leave Ibrox for more playing time.

Should the Middle East suitors follow up with a bid, Rangers won’t hesitate to let Alves go.

With a place in defence available and wages freed up as a result of the Portuguese’ exit, Rangers will be equipped with the wherewithal to go for Martin.

The out-of-favour 32-year-old wants to leave Carrow Road this month, and has his eyes firmly placed on a Rangers switch.

Despite primarily being a centre-back, Martin is also able to fill in at right-back and will prove to be a double-signing for the Light Blues.

The Scotland international has amassed over 280 league games playing in the English Premier League, Championship and League One.

Martin’s experience and versatility make him a great replacement for the wantaway Alves, and completing the deal would be huge for Rangers.
