Rangers might have failed to win any silverware, but the progress made under Steven Gerrard received plaudits from the pundits as well as the Ibrox faithful. They are set to bolster the squad furthermore despite a couple of busy transfer windows and have already roped in a few new names in these early weeks.
They are also linked with a move for Anderlecht centre-half James Lawrence (reports Mailsport as cited by the Daily Record) to shore up his defence but have not given up on George Edmundson despite Oldham’s rejection of several bids for their prized asset. The League Two outfit have instead accepted a £600,000 bid from Portsmouth and the Gers, keen on tying the 21-year-old down, are now set to match the offer to secure his services ahead of Portsmouth.
The highly-rated centre-back would compete for a first-team slot alongside Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic following the exit of Joe Worrall who has returned to his parent club Nottingham Forest upon completion of his season-long loan stint. The attraction of European football, as well as the Premiership title race, should make Glasgow a preferred destination for the youngster irrespective of Portsmouth’s upsurge under Kenny Jackett.
Edmundson has been one of the most promising prospects in the English fourth tier after making significant strides through the Latics’ academy ranks prior to spending his time on loan with several non-league outfits. He is now gearing up for a fresh challenge, and the project at Rangers must be fascinating for the starlet to flourish furthermore and live up to the hype.
The Bears have received another boost in their hunt for Ryan Kent in the aftermath of an astounding campaign on loan from Liverpool. The Reds set a hefty price tag for the attacking sensation and the Light Blues, not minted enough to meet the valuation, were exploring alternatives to strengthen themselves high up the pitch.
Aston Villa were reportedly monitoring the 22-year-old Englishman but have now pulled out of the race according to the Daily Record. Kent, meanwhile, prefers to return to Rangers as suggested by Mailsport (as cited by the Daily Record) and continue his excellent work down the left flank similar to the previous term.
The gaffer is pushing for another loan move, and his influence in Merseyside might see the Gers wrapping up a deal for the winger ahead of the other suitors.
