Rangers interested in midfielder previously linked with Barca & Real

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

In yet another of the long line of midfielders to both arrive at Ibrox and be linked with a move here, Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury has recently been touted with a loan switch north.

Hot on the heels of Man Utd’s Matty Willock and West Ham’s Domingos Quina, Choudhury is another promising young English midfielder who spent last season on loan at Burton in England’s Championship, and is said to be interesting Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha.

One cannot help wonder where on earth the defenders and wing backs are, but nevertheless the names do seem to have started to flow again and Leicester’s 19 year old CM is the latest name to hit Rangers’ radar.

Born in Bangladesh, Choudhury is yet to feature for Leicester’s first team, with the main aim being to get the lad experience, but whether Rangers need more central midfielders is a matter for debate, although the Foxes’ man is more of a creative deep-lying playmaker in the engine room. With the ability to get stuck in too, he is not entirely dissimilar to a young Barry Ferguson in style.

Choudhury attracted some marquee interest last summer, with Man Utd, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Catalonian rivals Barcelona linked with his signature, but instead the young lad ended up out at the Pirelli Stadium. No offence guys.

As with it all, we shall see if this one has any meat on the bone.


  1. Let us go with the players we have in just now any new players we can bring in next window.

  2. Can we stop with the whole developing other clubs AVERAGE players. No long or short term benefit to the club.

    For example hyndman – easily the highest calibre of the loans. All he cared about was getting game time before going back to Bournemouth, his effort at times was highly questionable and he seemed to have contempt for the manager, particularly when being substituted.

    Unless it's a level of quality we could otherwise not obtain, then no more of this nonsense. We need to build a team, get on with it.

    • Totally agree and a lot of the time when these guys come up it's because they yet lack a physicality or consistency which are two things you cannot get away without at Rangers.

      I'm not a fan of these types of deals but like you said if 'it's level of quality we could otherwise not obtain' i.e. a first pick who instantly improves the team (the Tims with Roberts for example) then we shouldn't cut off our nose to spite our face.

  3. Agree with the commenters. Right full-back slot has to be filled as a matter of urgency. They'll never sell him for the money we have, but I'd like to see Gomez come in from Liverpool. If the Leicester kid is as good as Joe Dodoo, I'd rather he go to Madrid or Barca.
