Noel Whelan has suggested Glasgow Rangers could offer players in exchange for Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson.
The Lowdown: Gers eye Ferguson
Some sources suggests the midfielder would be very eager to make the switch to Ibrox.
The Latest: Whelan makes exchange claim
Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan has suggested the Gers may offer players in order to capture the U21 Scotland international’s services. He said:
“I’m sure there might be players Aberdeen need that Rangers can offer, possibly.
“If that’s what it’s going to take to get a player through the door to improve them for the next four or five years…
“You’ve got the links, you’ve then got the enticement of Steven Gerrard. Also working with Gary McAllister, the likes of Jermain Defoe there, some great players in that midfield area.
“It’s a very tempting proposition, Rangers and playing at Ibrox, it really is.”
The Verdict: Better deal
Qualification for the Champions League group stages would provide a huge financial boost for the Gers, but that would not be secured until August, and the Ibrox outfit will need to bring in new signings before then. They will need to be clever in the transfer market, and a swap deal in this case could be an interesting one.
Would you like to sign Lewis Ferguson?
For example, the likes of Glenn Middleton and Greg Stewart appear to have no part to play in Steven Gerrard’s plans moving forward, yet they are both players with plenty of ability. A lower cash sum plus a couple of talented performers for Ferguson, who has 27 senior career assists to his name (Transfermarkt), may be enough to convince Aberdeen to part ways.
