Rangers: Pete O’Rourke drops Eric Martel claim

Rangers: Pete O’Rourke drops Eric Martel claim -Rangers News

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has now dropped a ‘huge’ claim with regards to Glasgow Rangers summer transfer target Eric Martel.

The Lowdown: Summer target

As per The Scottish Sun, the Ibrox club are currently monitoring the 20-year-old, who has already been told that he can leave RB Leipzig at the end of the season.

He is out on loan at Austria Vienna, and the Bundesliga trio of Koln, Union Berlin and Freiburg are also keen on his signature along with the Gers.

The Latest: O’Rourke claim on Martel

Speaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke has claimed that Martel has ‘huge potential’, as the journaliast gave a little bit more background on the defensive midfielder:

“It’s an interesting one. He has, obviously, been told that he might be allowed to leave Leipzig this summer because he has just one year left on his contract with the German club, but it’s been at Austria Vienna where he’s caught the eye this season.

“He has played well for the Austrian side and I think it has brought him to the attention of a number of German clubs as well as Rangers.

“He is a good age, at 20, so he’s only going to get better, you would imagine, with huge potential. He is a defensive midfielder.”

Should Rangers sign Martel?





The Verdict: Smart signing

Martel would certainly be a smart signing by Rangers, as he should be available at a good price given that he only has a year left on his deal with Leipzig.

Can you guess these ex-Rangers players' nationalities? Let's get started... Florian Kamberi's country of birth is?

Capable of playing as a centre-back and in the heart of midfield, the Germany under-21 international has scored two goals and supplied a further three assists in all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt), showing how much of a threat he can be in both penalty boxes with his 6 foot 1 frame.

He only turned 20 on Friday, so Giovanni van Bronckhorst can help to unearth the youngster’s potential, should he end up making the move to Ibrox in the summer.
