Rangers: Gers ‘interested’ in Joe Rothwell

Rangers: Gers ‘interested’ in Joe Rothwell -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers are reportedly now ‘interested’ in signing Joe Rothwell this summer.

The Lowdown: Out of contract

After failing to agree on a new deal with Blackburn Rovers, Rothwell’s contract is set to expire, meaning that he will leave the Championship team on a free transfer come the start of July.

Holding a value of £3.15m, and only 27 years of age, whoever is able to sign him could be getting a bargain on their hands.

The Latest: Rangers interest

As per BBC journalist Ian Dennis, the Ibrox outfit, as well as a number of clubs in the Championship, are now ‘interested’ in signing Rothwell.

Should Rangers sign Rothwell?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There is also interest from newly-promoted Premier League sides Fulham and AFC Bournemouth, with the latter having a bid ‘turned down’ in the January transfer window.

The Verdict: No-brainer

To get a player of Rothwell’s quality for free is surely a no-brainer for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team, and should have parallels to when they signed another midfielder in John Lundstram on a free from an English club in Sheffield United.

Hailed as a ‘special footballer‘ and a ‘super talent‘ by his manager Tony Mowbray, Rothwell scored three goals and made a further ten assists in the Championship this season (Transfermarkt), helping them get to the brink of the play-offs.

Nonetheless, with Aaron Ramsey returning to Juventus after his loan spell, he would give van Bronckhorst another handy option in the middle of the park.
