Rangers have had an opening bid for Feyenoord striker Danilo rejected.
The Ibrox club remain interested in signing the Brazilian – who scored 14 goals across all competitions last season – but are yet to agree a fee.
However, manager Michael Beale could yet add to his squad this week, with talks ongoing over a loan deal for Brighton forward Abdallah Sima.
The 22-year-old – who played against Rangers twice in 2021 for Slavia Prague – then moved to the Amex for around £7m, but has yet to make an appearance for the Premier League club.
Sima, a Senegal international, spent his first year on loan at Stoke City, before joining Angers last season where he scored six goals in 37 appearances.
He has two years left on his current Brighton deal and while nothing has yet been agreed, could complete his move to Glasgow this week.
Beale has already added Sam Lammers, Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling and Kieran Dowell to his squad and is understood to be pleased with the business done by the club so far.
Rangers are working on deals for several additions this summer, with Cremonese striker Cyriel Dessers and Los Angeles FC midfielder Jose Cifuentes still of interest.
There has also been interest in several Rangers players including the likes of Scott Wright and Glen Kamara, who could depart the club this summer.
‘We are ahead of schedule’
Speaking after the arrival of Lammers, Beale was positive about the club’s transfer business this summer.
“I am delighted with our progress so far in this summer transfer window,” he said.
“We have worked extremely well to recruit Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling, Kieran Dowell and Sam Lammers. We are ahead of schedule in our plans.
“The coming weeks will see more trading both in and out of the squad as we prepare for the season ahead. We have key areas of focus and we are close to securing our targets in those positions.”
