According to a new Ibrox exit update, a European club is prepared to finalize the signing of a “great” Rangers player during the summer transfer window.

Rumors about Rangers arriving and departing

In the approaching weeks, the Gers’ first priority will be winning the Scottish Premiership title, but they will also be working diligently behind the scenes on their impending summer transfer business.

Abdallah Sima and Fabricio Silva are two possible new arrivals who could make their loan moves from Brighton and Wolves permanent at the end of the current campaign. However, a lot of this will depend on Rangers’ ability to qualify for the Champions League and their financial situation.

Midfielder Eduard Spertsyan of Krasnodar is another player who has received support for a move to Ibrox, drawing comparisons to Manchester City sensation Kevin De Bruyne in the process. In 22 games this season in the Russian Premier League, he has nine goals to his name. Conversely, a number of Rangers players, including Kemar Roofe, whose contract expires at the end of the current season, could leave during the summer transfer window. Should he depart the Gers on a free transfer, up to four teams are reportedly vying for his signature. Another person who might be able to move on is John Lundstram, as the Englishman’s contract is soon to expire.

Rangers may lose a “great” player.

As per Sabah, the Turkish giants, Trabzonspor, are reportedly preparing a fresh bid for Rangers midfielder Lundstram, who they hope to sign this summer. Under the headline “Last Minute Trabzonspor News: New offer from Storm to Lundstram,” the story itself states that the 30-year-old’s hard and dynamic game in the midfield will strengthen the club, according to the technical team of Trabzonspor.

The £22,000-per-week Lundstram does appear to be getting closer to completing his Rangers departure soon because he believes he needs another challenge at this point in his career. He is going to enter the fall of his career at the age of 30, and he might believe that he has gone as far as he can in a Gers shirt.

Given his box-to-box ability in the middle of the park—he has four assists and averages 1.7 tackles per game in the league this season—Philippe Clement could want to hold onto the former Sheffield United player. In the meantime, Oli McBurnie, a former teammate, has already praised him, saying:

“He is a very good player. John is a versatile midfield player. He is a fantastic midfield player who can pass the ball with amazing range and an eye for goal. He is an innate winner. As a young man from Liverpool, I believe that we all have an understanding of their devotion. One of the nicest guys you will ever meet, but he can be demanding of his colleagues in practice and competition.”

John Lundstram’s Scottish Premiership stats this season Total
Appearances 31
Starts 30
Goals 0
Assists 4
Tackles per game 1.7
Key passes per game 1.4
Pass completion rate 88.6%

If Lundstram’s mind is made up, it may be tough to change his thought process, but Rangers should definitely consider offering him improved terms, seeing as he could remain a top player for another three or four years.
