Former Juventus Midfielder Claudio Marchisio 'Still Considering Offer' From Rangers
Italian legend Claudio Marchisio is reportedly still weighing up an offer to sign for SPL outfit Rangers.
The 33-year old, who won seven Serie A titles in a row during his glittering spell with hometown club Juventus, terminated his Zenit St Petersburg contract in July after just 15 games from the Russian outfit.
Having had knee surgery back in May, he's still without a club but isn't short of offers. According to Italian journalist Matteo Pedrosi he has turned down both Jiangsu Suning and Brescia in his native Italy, but Rangers, AS Monaco and Flamengo are still in pursuit.
Rangers fans appear to be in favour of the lucrative free transfer signing, having recently edited his Wikipedia page to give their approval.
Rangers have had their fair share of Italian exports over the years, with Gennaro Gattuso, Sergio Porrini, Marco Negri, Paolo Vanoli and Lorenzo Amoruso all turning out for the club in the past.
Marchisio also has a very special affection for current Gers boss Steven Gerrard too. In 2012 he talked about wanting to swap shirts with the Liverpool legend ahead of the European Championship quarter-final and when Gerrard retired, Il Principino paid him a wonderful tribute.
He wrote: "I watched you on the TV as a child. For me one of the strongest and most complete midfielder players that I have ever seen and ever met on the pitch. A legend and an emblem of your club. An example both as a person and a player! Good luck with everything."
