According to The Daily Mail, Millwall have rejected an approach for Glasgow Rangers target Abdul Abdulmalik.
The Lowdown: Rangers planning for the future
While the Gers have already added to their first-team squad this transfer window with the free signing of Fashion Sakala (rangers.co.uk), they have a history in recent years of signing youngsters.
James Graham and Tony Weston are just two of the teenagers they have added to their ranks over the last 12 to 18 months, and it seems they are interested in bringing in another.
The Latest: Abdulmalik offer rejected
As per this report, Millwall have rejected an approach from Swansea for 18-year-old Abdulmalik.
Along with Rangers, 13-time English league winners Arsenal have also been credited with an interest.
The Verdict: Plenty of potential
Abdulmalik may, as of yet, be relatively unknown, but he has shown promise so far at youth level. In particular, he managed four goals in four matches during the 2019/20 F.A Youth Cup (Transfermarkt), while he has also scored one goal in three caps for England’s U17 side.
Should Rangers sign Abdulmalik?
The interest from the likes of Arsenal also suggest he is a top talent, but it is refreshing to see the Gers pursue quality prospects.
With Nathan Patterson already breaking into the first team and the likes of Leon King and Ciaran Dickson picking up playing time, it seems Steven Gerrard is ready to build for the future as well as the present.
If Rangers do wish to make a move for Abdulmalik, they may need to do so sooner rather than later as Swansea look like they are pushing to get a deal done.
In other news, Rangers fans were livid at this SPFL development.
