The Lowdown: Busy week…
It has been a busy week for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side after they quickly secured the signing of Tom Lawrence on a free transfer after his contract at Derby County expired.
They face English Championship outfit Sunderland in a pre-season friendly tonight, as Van Bronckhorst gets a first look at the squad he has available to him and can decide whether he wants to add to it or trim it ahead of the new Premiership season.
The Latest: Double signing?
Taking to Twitter, The 4th Official has revealed that Rangers are now ‘confident’ that they can secure the signings of Fulgini and Matondo ‘soon’, with ‘talks’ going on for the latter for ‘some time’.
The Ibrox insider tweeted on Saturday afternoon: “Rangers confident that they will get both the Angelo Fulgini & Rabbi Matondo deal over the line soon. The source I spoke with is confident Rangers will soon come to an agreement for Matondo. Talks going on for some time now before news leaked yesterday.”
The Verdict: Exciting
These are certainly exciting times for the Ibrox faithful, as the Gers could secure three new signings in the space of just a few days.
Matondo is a Wales international like Lawrence and impressed on loan at Cercle Brugge from Schalke 04 last term, scoring 10 goals and supplying two assists in total over all competitions, mainly operating from out wide (Transfermarkt).
Should Rangers start Matondo?
Fulgini would be coming from a major European top-flight in Ligue 1, having scored five times and supplied four assists for Angers from midfield (Transfermarkt).
On that evidence, both players would certainly improve Van Bronckhorst’s squad if they come to Glasgow.
