Nick Powell is a major signing that Rangers must complete this summer

Nick Powell is a major signing that Rangers must complete this summer

Rangers will be hoping that the season draws to a swift conclusion because, with nothing to play for anymore, all attention has shifted to the summer. So, with the right summer signings, the Gers will be capable of challenging Celtic for the entirety of next season. 

After starting the season well, Rangers obviously gradually fell off the pace and that proved detrimental for their season.

Steven Gerrard would have hoped to become an instant success at Ibrox but so long as he’s backed financially over the summer, he can make sure the second campaign is one to remember for him and the club.

Money won’t be required but a lot of effort certainly will be to try and lure out-of-contract Nick Powell to the club this summer, a signing that could do wonders for Rangers.

Powell, (who is valued at £3.1 million on Transfermarkt) is set to leave Wigan this summer and whether that’s because he’s joining Rangers or someone else is ultimately down to Steven Gerrard. The Rangers boss will surely realise what a huge coup Nick Powell could be for the club and after registering their interest in the January transfer window, they must return to try and secure his signature this summer instead.

Rangers don’t have a player quite like Nick Powell (who was touted with a move north of the border by the Scottish Sun in January) and therefore, it makes complete sense for their time to be invested in trying to sign him once again.

Having enjoyed another strong campaign despite Wigan’s struggles this season, the 25-year-old is the type of player that can win a game on his own, feeding the strikers and adding that bit of class to lift backsides off of seats at Ibrox.

Six goals and seven assists thus far show his influence and proves yet again what a top signing he would be for Rangers.
