Rangers: Gers eyeing Angus Gunn move this summer
Glasgow Rangers are reportedly eyeing a move to bring goalkeeper Angus Gunn to Ibrox this summer.
The Lowdown: Goalkeeper uncertainty
Michael Beale has been rotating between Allan McGregor and Jon McLaughlin this season, with them making 24 and 16 appearances between them in all competitions respectively so far.
Robbie McCrorie has also been backed to make a breakthrough this term, suggesting that the manager is unsure of who his number one is.
Thus, they could look to sign an established number one this summer, especially given that McGregor and McLaughlin are in their 40s and mid-30s respectively.
The Latest: Gunn interest
As per The Scottish Sun, Rangers are eyeing a potential move for Gunn this summer, who sporting director Ross Wilson knows well from his time at Southampton.
The goalkeeper was dropped by Norwich City manager David Wagner upon his appointment, but he did make a return in between the sticks in the 1-0 loss away at Bristol City in the Championship on Sunday (Transfermarkt).
The Verdict: Smart move
It would certainly be a smart move from the Gers to sign the 27-year-old Gunn, given that both McGregor and McLaughlin are coming to the tale end of their careers.
Hailed as a ‘really impressive‘ goalkeeper by journalist Simon Bajkowski, and a player ‘full of potential‘ by former Norwich boss Daniel Farke, Gunn has plenty of experience playing at a high level, recording 31 appearances in total in the English Premier League, while he has also been called up for the England national team, and being capped at youth level for the Three Lions.
The six-foot-five colossus also ranks in the top 13% of all goalkeepers outside of Europe’s top five leagues in a number of key metrics over the past year, and is certainly capable of making the number one jersey his own at Ibrox.
