According to ESPN, Glasgow Rangers are interested in adding Djed Spence to Steven Gerrard’s squad this summer.
Gers eye Spence
The Gers are believed to be interested in signing 20-year-old Spence, who currently plays for Middlesbrough.
The Ibrox outfit are one of several sides interested in the right-back. Wolves are said to be leading the race for him, while Everton are also in pursuit. Boro are believed to be looking for bids of at least £5m.
Spence has been solid for the north-east side throughout this campaign, making 37 appearances in the league (Transfermarkt). Last year, Neil Warnock said he is a player with “enormous ability” (via The Northern Echo) while Jose Mourinho was known to be an admirer during his time at Tottenham.
Would you like to sign Spence?
However, despite all his clear qualities, it would make little sense for the Gers to sign Spence. At right-back, Gerrard already has James Tavernier and Nathan Patterson to choose from – two players who themselves are impressive. Unless the Gers are planning on moving one of those two on, it would make no sense for them to part with such a hefty fee for someone who, realistically, may only be third choice. As such, it seems likely Spence will end up elsewhere than Ibrox.
