Josh Windass is a man in demand at the moment. As reported by The Scottish Sun, the Rangers midfielder is being monitored by a number of potential suitors as it has emerged that four clubs from England are looking to add the attacking midfielder to their roster.
Premier League clubs West Ham United and Burnley are looking to obtain the signature of Windass with the view to further strengthen their squads before the close of this summer’s transfer window. The 24-year-old was involved in both of Rangers’ Europa League qualifiers against Shkupi which the Scottish side won unconvincingly.
Windass has built himself a strong reputation in the eyes of clubs from Premier League and Burnley and West Ham are amongst those who value the attributes Windass can bring to their respective clubs. EFL Championship new-comers West Bromwich Albion and Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa are also eager to rescue Josh from his Rangers stint as they look to freshen up their respective squads in time for the new campaign and before the transfer window comes to a halt.
He has featured in all the matches that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has taken charge of so far. However, now it seems uncertain that he will maintain his place within the Rangers’ starting 11 as the club’s summer signings look to challenge Windass for a place on the team.
The Gers ace can play as a left-sided midfielder and as a secondary striker. He is most impressive, however, when deployed as an attacking midfielder. During his stay at Rangers, the Englishman has notched up 70 appearances, beating the opposition goal-keepers 19 times as well as setting up his team-mates for a further 13 times. He is quick on his feet and possesses the ability to get out of a tricky situation due to his creativity. A fan-favourite among the Rangers faithful, Windass will add strength to the West Ham squad if they are successful in acquiring his services.
Having joined Rangers on a free transfer from Accrington two years ago, his value has now peaked to £3m and his current beneficiaries will be open to selling him to those suitors who can match their valuation of the player. His current deal is valid up until 2021 having signed a long-term contract extension in February.
