Rangers may still be putting in some strong performances in their final few matches of the campaign, however, there will be some disappointment that they were unable to do it for the majority of the campaign.
Steven Gerrard made a number of changes to the squad he inherited last summer, however, it would be fair to say that he still has some areas that he needs to improve and it appears the Light Blues are being linked with a player who could fit the bill.
What’s the News?
According to a report by TeamTALK, Rangers continue to be linked with a move for Wigan Atheltic’s Nick Powell this summer.
The midfielder is out of contract in the summer and has continued to refuse a new deal at the DW Stadium, which has led to a number of clubs taking an interest in him.
Arch-rivals Celtic, Norwich City, Burnley, Brighton and Hove Albion, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday are all thought to be keen on him, whilst there is also interest from big clubs abroad, such as Fenerbache, Besiktas, Borussia Monchengladbach and Red Bull Leipzig.
Powell could become an excellent addition in Gerrard’s side next season if they are able to land him in the summer and could potentially be the man to help them finally reclaim the Scottish Premiership title in the near future.
The 25-year-old has been extremely impressive for Wigan this season, having recorded seven goals and six assists in his 28 Championship fixtures so far.
The former Manchester United midfielder has all the traits and skills required to become a hit at Ibrox in the future, as he has plenty of pace and strength, whilst his ability on the ball in terms of passing, finishing and dribbling make him a potentially exceptional addition.
With creativity lacking in the middle of the park for the Light Blues this season, Powell’s arrival would certainly add an extra bite and could finally turn the tables on their rivals in the future.
