Rangers: Journalist drops Ross Barkley latest -Rangers News

Rangers may have been handed a boost in their pursuit of free agent Ross Barkley, according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon.

The Lowdown: Free agent

The 28-year-old was released by Chelsea earlier this week after having his contract at Stamford Bridge terminated, making him available for any potential suitors.

The midfielder has been attracting interest from the Scottish Premiership, with Gers, alongside rivals Celtic, both name-checked, as well as a few unnamed clubs from the Premier League.

The Latest: Barkley to Rangers boost

Taking to Twitter, Nixon revealed that one of Barkley’s closest friends is John Lundstram, potentially giving the Gers an advantage in the race for his services.

Asked by a fan whether there were any updates on the move, he wrote:

“Couple in Prem talking about doing something … but Rangers an attractive move … and didn’t realise his best mate was there already.”

The Verdict: Suits both parties

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is believed to be targeting a new midfielder before the window slams shut, and Barkley would surely be a welcome experienced addition at the Ibrox.

The 6 foot 2 star averaged 1.5 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per top-flight game for Chelsea last season (WhoScored), and has made a career total of 349 senior club appearances.

Rangers are looking for a creative maestro and Barkley is searching for a fresh start, so this could prove to be a move that suits both parties in the long term.
