Rangers Eager to Secure Permanent Deal for Abdallah Sima Following Successful Loan Spell

Rangers is reportedly keen on securing Abdallah Sima on a permanent basis following his impressive loan stint this season, as reported by talkSPORT.

According to talkSPORT, the Senegalese star has made a significant impact at Ibrox, prompting the club’s desire to retain him beyond the current season.

Rangers are said to be open to negotiating a permanent deal for the 22-year-old, contingent on reaching an “acceptable financial package” with Brighton & Hove Albion, who acquired him for £6 million from Slavia Prague in 2021.

Sima’s performances have garnered widespread praise, with many at Ibrox eager to see him remain in the squad beyond this campaign.

Despite missing two months of the season due to injury, Sima has netted an impressive 16 goals, a tally surpassed only by James Tavernier and Cyriel Dessers.

However, the likelihood of Brighton agreeing to a cut-price deal with Rangers after his successful loan spell appears slim. This presents a dilemma for the club, as investing heavily in Sima could impact their budget for other transfers, potentially posing challenges for manager Philippe Clement.

Nevertheless, it’s crucial for the board to support the manager’s vision, and if Sima is a player Clement sees fit for Ibrox next season, efforts must be made to secure his services without compromising the team’s future prospects.
