The Scottish transfer window doesn’t officially open till June 1st, but that hasn’t stopped some pre-contracts joining Rangers and a glut of name the likes of which we are struggling to precedent.
Ever since Steven Gerrard joined the club, we have had an absolute monsoon of players linked. Some are likely, some still sit at the rumour stage, but Ibrox Noise nevertheless does its best at taking you through as many of the names we’ve been linked with as possible.
The story is a £4M deal is in place with this Slovakian ex-team mate of Stevie Ger. Information is this one is imminent.
£600k bid rejected, but something close to a million will snatch Brighton’s 25-year old CB without a lot of fuss.
West Ham’s 21-year old CB is said to be seven figures too, and the situation with the London Stadium’s managerial vacancy makes Burke’s future there uncertain. Especially given he’s spent most his career with the Hammers on loan elsewhere.
Lazio’s 32-year old holding mid is another ex team mate of Gerrard, and is a Brazilian international. Well, former. Again, reports are a £4M sum would be enough but we don’t know a lot about this deal beyond the rumour stage.
Peterborough’s on-fire striker, Marriott is putting them away for fun in English League One. Said to be valued at upwards of £5M and some rumours claim a bid to that amount has already been submitted by Gerrard and Allen.
The Scotland international has had an excellent season at Championship Barnsley on loan from Swansea, and the 21-year old winger is yet another that £4M has allegedly been bid for.
Liverpool striker, another young lad at 20, he knows where the back of the net is having had a very fine spell on loan at Dutch cracks Vitesse. Apparently Stevie will make making a formal inquiry to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on this one.
This one has persisted for sure – an experienced EPL striker with bags of world cup and Champions league pedigree, Defoe might not be the marquee forward he once was but the 35-year old is still more than good enough for the EPL.
This one seems to have died a death, after being a borderline signature away from being a Rangers player at one point. Not completely gone but probably is, and Rangers have been looking elsewhere.
Probably not, right? Right? Said that about Gerrard and Barton so who knows, but the Spanish legend is now a free agent and just wants first team football. With Rangers being a huge focal point of attention right now and his old stomping partner in charge, Torres might just be interested if compromise could be made on the wages.
Rangers have been linked to McGinn for some time, and he’s clearly the best player in the SPL outwith Rangers and Celtic – he’s Hibs though so about as much chance of us getting him as them signing Andy Halliday…
We’re sure there’ll be more craziness today and that we’ve forgotten a tonne of the links too.
