Cremonese have placed a £7million price tag on Rangers target Cyriel Dessers.
Sports Mail revealed last week that Dessers was on a list of strikers under consideration at Rangers.
The Scottish club, who are poised to confirm the addition of goalkeeper Jack Butland are understood to have made a significant opening offer.
However, Cremonese are currently seeking more than the near-£6m fee paid to Genk for the 28-year-old last summer.
Capped four times by Nigeria, the forward was previously the top scorer in the 2021-22 UEFA Conference League during a highly successful loan spell with Feyenoord. He has also played for Lokeren in Belgium, as well as Dutch sides NAC Breda, FC Utrecht, and Heracles.
Troyes striker, Ike Ugbo is another Nigerian player being monitored by the Ibrox club, who have already kicked off their summer rebuild with the signings of Kieran Dowell and Dujon Sterling.
