Maja finished the last Ligue 1 campaign with eight goals and provided three more assists in 24 appearances for Bordeaux.

The 21-year-old made his international debut for Nigeria in the friendly game against Ukraine last September.

There are possibilities the move to the Glasgow based club will pull through because Emeka Obasi who is the agent representing the striker facilitated Joe Aribo and Sheyi Ojo's moves to the club.

Rangers have already signed Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun after a successful six-month loan spell with Wigan who got relegated to League One.

Gerrard's men are still hanging in this season's Europa League competition but have to cancel a two-goal deficit in their round of 16 first leg 3-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen.
