“We will go up”- Maja confident of Bordeaux’s promotion to Ligue 1

Former Scottish champions Rangers are on the verge of completing a deal for Super Eagles striker Josh Maja, who is now a free agent after his contract with Ligue 2 club Bordeaux expired. Maja had an impressive season in the French second division, finishing as the fourth-best goalscorer with 16 goals and six assists in 38 games.

Despite his individual success, Maja’s efforts were not enough to secure promotion for Bordeaux to Ligue 1. The club suffered a setback on the final day of the season when they lost three points due to fan trouble in their match against Rodez.

Had Bordeaux gained promotion, Maja would have received an automatic one-year contract extension. However, with the club remaining in Ligue 2, Maja had the freedom to explore other options. Despite the club’s attempts to retain him, Maja refused to sign an extension, allowing him to become a free agent at the end of June.

Rangers, who are eager to bolster their attacking options, have identified Maja as a potential signing. The Scottish giants are already close to completing a deal for Nigerian striker Cyriel Dessers and could initiate negotiations with Maja once the Dessers transfer is finalized.

Maja’s arrival at Rangers would provide them with additional firepower in their quest for domestic and European success. The 22-year-old Nigerian possesses a keen eye for goal and has showcased his ability to score consistently in the challenging environment of the French lower leagues.

Rangers’ pursuit of these talented Nigerian strikers highlights their ambition to strengthen their squad and compete at the highest level. With the potential additions of both Dessers and Maja, Rangers would significantly enhance their attacking options and increase their chances of challenging for silverware in the upcoming season.

As negotiations continue, Rangers fans eagerly await the official announcement of Maja’s arrival, which would add further excitement and anticipation to the club’s already promising outlook.
