Rangers close in on major statement signing, Liverpool in for £250,000 windfall

Jordan Rossiter

‘Kloppmania’ really is in full swing for our Liverpool supporting locals in the Transfer Tavern. Still in dreamland after the stunning win over Villarreal on Thursday night, most of them don’t look like crashing back down to earth anytime soon.

Still, the Reds’ proud history of blooding academy graduates into their first-team is one to be admired, though it could soon suffer a huge dent.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter has agreed to join Rangers ahead of their first campaign back in the top flight of Scottish football, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The highly rated 19-year old has progressed through the youth ranks with the Reds, though has struggled to break the first-team on a regular basis.

Having drawn comparisons to Anfield icon Steven Gerrard, the talented England youth starlet is believed to have attracted the interest of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, it is thought he is keen on a move to Ibrox upon the expiration of his deal on Merseyside, having impressed former Liverpool academy director Frank McParland who now works in Glasgow.

Manager Mark Warburton is said to be eager to add him to his engine room as they bid to battle Celtic at the summit of the Scottish Premiership.

With the Gers outside of England, the Reds will only be due around £250,000 in compensation should the deal go through as expected.

How much of a coup for Rangers is the signing of Rossiter?
