Rangers: Light Blues closing in on deal for Turkey international

Rangers: Light Blues closing in on deal for Turkey international -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers are closing in on a deal for a Turkish left-back, according to The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell.

The Lowdown: Yilmaz’s season

Ridvan Yilmaz made 27 appearances in the Super Lig last season, bringing his overall tally for his current club Besiktas to 62 games played – an impressive feat for the academy graduate.

The full-back even made two appearances in the Champions League, featuring against European giants Ajax and Sporting Lisbon in the group stage.

As a result, a number of clubs have been alerted to the 21-year-old’s presence this summer.

The Latest: Campbell’s news

After rumours emerged linking Yilmaz with a move to Ibrox, Campbell has now shared the latest update on the potential transfer.

Taking to Twitter as he shared a link to a corresponding report from The Athletic, the reliable journalist claimed: “Rangers closing in on a deal for Besiktas left-back Ridvan Yilmaz. 21yo Turk fits into Van Bronckhorst’s direct style.

“Frankfurt were close three weeks ago but talks broke down. Interest from Germany and Italy but the player has heart set on Ibrox.”

The Verdict: He’d be a great signing

With such interest in the youngster, this could be a huge swoop for the Light Blues, who have been looking to add fresh talent to their ranks.

Calvin Bassey’s £20m club-record sale to Ajax raised concerns over Rangers’ potential replacements for their star defender.

Should Rangers sign Ridvan Yilmaz?

No

However, with the Gers closing in on a deal for Yilmaz and after Ben Davies’ arrival from Liverpool, the Glasgow outfit have wasted little time in finding a solution.

With six Turkey caps to his name since making his debut against Azerbaijan in May 2021, this could be a shrewd piece of prospective business from Van Bronckhorst and co.
