Glasgow Rangers are one of many sides being linked with a move to sign Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram and former Premier League goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes he would be a good signing for the Scottish side.
Robinson’s thoughts on Lundstram signing for Rangers
Speaking to Football Insider, Robinson said: “He would be a massive signing for Rangers. He could be the player that pushes them over the line. He was such a good player last year for Sheffield United but this season, he has not played as much. His head has clearly been turned.
He is in the last year of his contract and he will know where he is going. You do not let your contract run down for no reason. He will have known where he is going for a long time.
Lundstram is a player who could take them over the line. Rangers have been outstanding this season but if they could get Lundstram in January, it would be a big boost.”
Would he be a good signing for the club?
Last season, the 26-year-old became a vital player both in attack and defence for the Blades as he averaged 1.4 tackles, one interception and 1.3 shots per game, (WhoScored). He also scored five goals, which was the joint-second most in the squad, and provided three assists, also the joint-second best at Sheffield United, which highlights how he thrived in the Premier League.
This season, his form has not been as good, and he has not been selected to start all the games, and this is probably due to his head being turned by transfer interest and because he’s refused to sign a new contract.
Steven Gerrard’s side should still look to sign the player. If they could pick him up on a free transfer, it would definitely be a good coup. He is a midfielder who can help both in attack and defence, and this type of player can be crucial to a team looking to push on both domestically and in Europe.
