Glasgow Rangers are reportedly keen on signing central midfielder Fabian Delph as a free agent.
The Lowdown: Great career
Delph has had a great career in English football, winning the Premier League title twice with Manchester City, among other trophies (Transfermarkt), while he has also been capped 20 times by the England national team.
However, he is now a free agent after being released by Everton, having been sidelined with consistent injury problems.
The Latest: Rangers keen
As per Football League World, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team are taking a keen interest in Delph, but face a lot of competition from the English Championship for his signature.
Sheffield United, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, West Brom and Reading are also thought to be looking at a potential move.
The Verdict: Could be worth it
Even though signing Delph would come with risks given his injury problems and the fact that he has not played this season, it could be one that would be worth it in the long run.
Should Rangers sign Delph?
He is a player experienced in the UEFA Champions League, a competition where the Gers could do with some leadership after two opening losses to Ajax and Napoli respectively.
Nonetheless, the 32-year-old can also play almost anywhere on the pitch, and given that assistant manager Roy Makaay and five other Light Blues share the same agency as him, this is a deal that could well be pushed through ahead of their competition.
