Linked during the last transfer window along with a host of fellow Bees’ players, Brentford’s midfield enforcer Toumani Diagouraga has again been named within transfer circles in connection with Rangers.
With manager Mark Warburton lacking a recognised defensive midfielder, and the John Eustace saga showing no sign of ever resolving, it could well be that the Magic Hat’s attention has turned to resources south of the border, with the Griffin Park side having a fair to middling season, following a truly desperate start.
The French midfielder, 28, has had something of a journeyman career in England, with a decade of experience around the Championship and lower, which is exactly the kind of player Warburton craves, and Rangers’ boss knows Diagouraga extremely well given he won the fans’ player of the year award under Warbs and made almost 50 appearances during that season.
A strong and powerful midfielder is high on the agenda for January, and “Dave” as he is known ticks those boxes.
We will see if interest in this one materialises.
