Rangers: Journalist claims Cantwell could become Gers ‘talisman’

Image for Rangers: Journalist claims Cantwell could become Gers ‘talisman’

Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Rangers-linked star Todd Cantwell could be a ‘talisman’ at the club should he make the move to Ibrox.

The Norwich City winger has been recently linked with a January move to Michael Beale’s side according to The Scottish Sun.

Cantwell has experience playing internationally at youth level, picking up four caps for England’s Under-21s making his debut in 2019.

Additionally, he’s played a number of games in the English Premier League and Championship, playing 45 times in England’s top flight and has amassed 86 appearances in the second tier.

He’s spent his entire career at Norwich thus far, with loan spells at Fortuna Sittard four years ago and AFC Bournemouth last season.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones said that the player could build a strong relationship with the Rangers fans should he head to Ibrox and the supporters would be ecstatic if he could deliver some big moments for them.

He stated: “He’s one of those guys that can become a talisman and he can become a spark.

“You’ve seen how he can come up with big moments in games and I’m sure that, at Ibrox, they would love to see Todd Cantwell at his best if they can manage to get that one done.”

TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…

We believe that a move to Glasgow would be beneficial for both Rangers and Cantwell, while it seems a move in January or the summer could be a real possibility.

With new Norwich boss David Wagner reportedly being open to sanctioning a sale for the winger, Beale may be able to get his man.

Indeed, they’ve opted to play the likes of Onel Hernandez and Adam Idah on the left side over Cantwell in recent weeks, with Cantwell not playing in the league since December and is without a Championship start since early November.

A previous report claimed that the Canaries valued the player at £40m in 2021, and whilst you would imagine he will likely take a much lower fee, he could still be outside of the Gers’ price range.

However, Cantwell’s current deal is up at the end of June, which would make him available to sign on a free transfer. Should a January switch not materialise, Beale could well look to swoop in once again upon his contract’s expiry.

And with most of Rangers’ regulars this term over the age of 25, you can see how Cantwell’s profile, given his age and prior experience, could see him bring about a refreshing change to the Gers midfield as Beale attempts to dominate Scottish football once again.
