The HJK Helsinki forward has been linked heavily with a move to Ibrox after a productive season in the Veikkausliiga, netting 28 goals in 42 league games.

The striker would become Rangers’ sixth summer arrival, following on the heals of Ryan Jack and the Portuguese quartet of Daniel Candeias, Bruno Alves, Dalcio and Fabio Cardoso.
