Skysports.com understands Celtic and Rangers are ready to make late bids to try and snatch highly-rated midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The Kenya international currently plays for Germinal Beerschot Antwerpen in Belgium and has been attracting interest from across Europe.
The likes of Aston Villa and Newcastle United have checked on him during the past season, while Hannover and Werder Bremen are also rumoured to be keen.
Standard Liege, meanwhile, are hoping to keep Wanyama in Belgium and have agreed a deal with his current club.
However, a transfer has yet to be finalised and that could allow Old Firm rivals Celtic and Rangers to make a late swoop.
It is understood that that SPL duo are prepared to make offers for the defensive midfielder in the hope of snatching him from Standard's grasp.
