Rangers have made a decent start to the transfer window with the additions of Fashion Sakala and John Lundstram, two proven players who both rejected the chance to play in Europe’s top leagues to sign for the Scottish champions.
Whilst Vital Rangers understands that the only position we are actively recruiting in is defensive midfield, a report in Football Insider claims that we aren’t just looking to add a new face but that “major” signings could be on the horizon:
“Rangers are working on securing two more major signings before the window shuts.
“Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the club hierarchy are preparing to secure two more senior signings but they are dependent on potential departures as well as the club’s progress in the Champions League qualifiers.”
This would align with our own information that suggests any major spending would only be possible if there are departures, the squad is well balanced as it is, however, there is a financial black hole caused by Covid-19 that has to be filled.
Steven Gerrard is in an enviable position in that he doesn’t have to rebuild his squad or make wholesale changes and that the additions of Lundstram and Sakala provide even more depth, it also provides an element of short-term protection if we do receive any decent offers.
Do Rangers need another midfielder?
As yet there has only been rumoured bids for Alfredo Morelos, and if the reported fees are correct, it wouldn’t have been much of a decision to knock them back.
Champions League money might not be that big a deal for Premier League clubs but a good run could almost double our revenue opening up a whole new market to us – we just need to get there first.
