The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling optimistic about their chances of challenging Celtic for the title next season thanks to the arrival of Steven Gerrard and several players, but their best summer deal could yet be on the horizon.
Steven Gerrard has not wasted any time in attempting to stamp his personal mark on his new club by concluding plenty of deals in the transfer market already. Rangers may well have completed the signing of 7 players but it seems unlikely that they have concluded their business for the summer just yet.
Gerrard’s obvious link with Liverpool has certainly influenced his strategy as he has brought both Jon Flanagan and Ovie Ejaria to the club from the Reds, however, he is interested in raiding his former club once again according to talkSPORT.
According to the report, Rangers are interested in signing 21-year-old winger Harry Wilson this summer on a season-long loan, but they will face competition from Old Firm rivals Celtic for his signature.
Wilson has hardly been given an opportunity to shine in Liverpool’s senior squad despite his age, but he made the most of a short-term loan spell at Hull City this year by scoring 7 goals and providing 4 assists from 13 Championship appearances, taking his goalscoring tally to 17 in all-competitions for the season.
With direct dribbling and a fearless attitude to take on his opposite number at the heart of his game, Wilson should have no problem adapting to the SPFL last season considering his success in the Championship.
The Rangers revolution is well underway and Gerrard has got off to a productive start by bringing the likes of Nikola Katic and Scott Arfield to the club, both of which represent quality acquisitions, but beating their closest rival to the signature of a player with the ability to tear opponents apart in the SPFL would undoubtedly represent his best signing to date.
