Rangers: Premier League club in advanced Rory Wilson talks

Rangers: Premier League club in advanced Rory Wilson talks -Rangers News

A club in the Premier League are reportedly now in advanced talks to take Glasgow Rangers striker Rory Wilson away from Ibrox this summer.

The Lowdown: Sensational season

Wilson has come off the back of a sensational season with the Gers’ youth teams, scoring over 40 goals while also notching up eight in 11 games for Scotland’s U17s (Football Insider).

Unfortunately for the Light Blues, this is sure to drive up interest in the youngster, who is such a hot prospect at just 16 years of age and is now set to leave the club when his contract expires.

The Latest: Villa talks

As per Football Insider, Aston Villa are now in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Wilson, and are ‘confident’ of securing a deal ahead of Brighton and Hove Albion and other clubs in the English top flight.

A source from Villa Park has revealed that they are ‘close’ to a breakthrough for Wilson, who is regarded as a ‘big talent’ at the Teddy Bears.

Ross Wilson and Giovanni van Bronckhorst have ‘failed’ to convince him to stay, and so he looks set to leave for a development fee of just £300,000.

The outlet describes the news as a ‘major blow’ for the club, who also lost the talented Billy Gilmour when he was the same age.

Rangers fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Major blow indeed

Of course, losing Wilson will be a big blow for RFC, especially given what looks to be a minimal fee that they will get for him.

Should Rangers keep Wilson?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The lure of the Premier League is sometimes too difficult to turn down, and the 16-year-old now looks set to continue his development in Villa’s Academy.

Nonetheless, Rangers may now need to try and find a replacement for their youth sides, and of course the much bigger implication is potentially missing out on a massive transfer fee down the line if Wilson fulfils his potential.
