As per The Star, Glasgow Rangers are set to ramp up their interest in out-of-contract midfielder John Lundstram next week.
The Lowdown: Gers eye Lundstram
Rangers have been linked with the 27-year-old for a number of months as they look to prepare their squad for the next campaign (Glasgow Live).
Lundstram is soon to officially become a free agent after leaving Sheffield United at the end of his contract (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Gers to step up interest in Lundstram
It is being reported that the Gers are to step up their interest in the Blades’ Lundstram, according to The Star.
Burnley and Crystal Palace are believed to be the two other clubs interested in the 27-year-old’s services.
The Verdict: Worth fighting for
Sheffield United may have been relegated from the Premier League last season, but Lundstram has impressed over the past two campaigns. He has racked up 62 top-flight appearances and, during the 2019/20 term he scored five goals and provided three assists as the Blades finished in the top half. Billy Sharp even called him a “real menace” during that campaign.
Would you like to sign Lundstram?
Now a free agent, he could end up being a bargain for Ross Wilson and co. He is still only 27, and at a value of £6.3m (Transfermarkt,) they would clearly be signing him for a snip – obviously the wages would need to be taken into account (he earned £25,000 per week last term; only two Gers players were better paid). This could prove to be a fantastic signing if the Gers can beat their competitors to his signature.
