Journalist Alan Nixon has claimed that Glasgow Rangers will sign John Lundstram on a free transfer this week.
The Lowdown: Gers set to announce signing
Speaking upon the Gers’ return to pre-season training, Steven Gerrard revealed that the Ibrox outfit are close to agreeing a deal for an unnamed player.
The 55-time Scottish champions have been linked with Lundstram for a number of months after it emerged that he would be available as a free agent (via Glasgow Live).
The Latest: Nixon makes Lundstram reveal
Nixon was asked on Twitter by a Gers supporter: “Any idea who Rangers are apparently going to announce this week? Lundstram rumoured?”
His response was short but sweet, simply stating: “It will be”.
The Verdict: Top deal
Although Sheffield United were relegated from the Premier League last season, Lundstram did well during his time amongst the elite. During the Blades’ first campaign back in the top flight in 2019/20, he scored five goals in 34 appearances as the Yorkshire side impressed (Transfermarkt). He didn’t match the same heights the following season, but he still did not let himself down.
Would you like to sign Lundstram?
The midfielder is valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt and is just 27 years old – he is in his prime, which means the Gers would be getting a player seemingly on the top of his game. As they chase a spot in the group stages of the Champions League, the signing of players like Lundstram appears to bode well for their chances.
In other news, this man has been urged to leave Ibrox.
