Rangers: Jones gives verdict on ‘dream’ transfers

Image for Rangers: Jones gives verdict on ‘dream’ transfers

Journalist Dean Jones has said that three new signings would be the ‘dream’ for Rangers in the January transfer window.

Michael Beale’s side have brought in no new faces to Ibrox this month, but they’re certainly working on a number of deals which they hope to complete before the window shuts.

According to The Scottish Sun, Todd Cantwell of Norwich City and Everton’s Tom Davies have been linked with moves to Rangers.

The Gers have also submitted a bid for Swansea City man Morgan Whittaker, according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims the player wants to make a move to Scotland happen.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones said that Rangers would present a great opportunity for many players to excel and can see the thinking behind their interest in Davies and Cantwell.

He stated: “What Rangers can offer is a huge platform on which they can thrive. So, this is a club that will be very appealing to a lot of players, they will sign one or two in the next month, realistically.

“Three would be the dream, probably, but we’re not sure they’re going to get to that point. So, I think there’s a lot of sense to pursue players like Cantwell or Davies.”

TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…

We believe that the recent names linked with Rangers would add quality to their side – especially Cantwell, who could benefit from a fresh start at Ibrox.

The 24-year-old has played 129 times for the Canaries but has found himself out of favour this season with the Championship side.

He’s only averaged 48 league minutes per match from 18 games, while he’s failed to score or assist and created just one big chance in the English second tier.

A move away from Norfolk could be what the player needs to rediscover his form, while the left winger could be a potential long-term replacement for Ryan Kent, who sees his Rangers contract expire in May.

Davies also fits the mould of a player who could benefit from an exit, as in his last two seasons with Everton, he’s picked up only 15 Premier League appearances amid injury troubles.

Meanwhile, Whittaker was on fire for Plymouth Argyle this season before he was recalled from his loan by the Swans, with the 22-year-old having scored nine goals and gained seven assists in League One.

Beale may see the forward as someone he can develop and nourish into a future star at Ibrox and lead the line for a number of years.

Whether Rangers will follow through on their reported interest remains to be seen, but it does appear as though they have many irons in the fire heading into the final weeks of the window.
