The transfer window in Scotland might not be open for a few more weeks, but teams up and down the country are starting to make their early door signings, with Rangers leading the charge.
Steven Gerrard’s side have been on the hunt for new players for a while, signing four already, and it is likely that number is to increase when the window officially opens on the 11th June.
Rangers are set for a busy summer, and the latest player to come up on the Gers’ radar is Oldham Athletic defender George Edmundson, who according to the Daily Mail has been at the centre of a rejected bid from the Scottish club.
The 21-year-old centre-back has been a mainstay in the Oldham team all season, making 45 appearances in League Two this campaign and catching the eye of many teams across both England and Scotland, but with a £450,000 asking price being demanded from the Latics, Rangers will do well to bring the defender in for a lower fee.
With Oldham strapped for cash, Edmundson could be sold for a price below what Pete Wild’s team are demanding for their star asset, and if Rangers are able to tempt the defender north of the border it could be a smart move for Steve Gerrard.
Valued at £45,000 on Transfermarkt, Edmundson can be a player that in a season or two can be an established first-team player for Rangers whilst learning under the experienced crop of defenders the club already have.
It might be a pretty penny for his signature, but the 21-year-old defender could be a good bit of business from Gerrard and Rangers, who can do with a centre-back that can develop into a future starter.
Rangers fans, would Edmundson be a good signing? Let us know!
