Rangers eye Joe Aribo-esque swoop for “breathtaking” talent

Ross Wilson could be onto another Rangers masterclass with shades of the Gers’ 2019 swoop for Joe Aribo.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is looking at bringing in his own signings to Ibrox during the summer transfer window, as there will almost certainly be some outgoings.

Journalist Alan Nixon reported Rangers’ interest in Bolton winger Oladapo Afolayan earlier this month, and it’s certainly a transfer which could work out quite well if the Light Blues secure his signature.

The £3.4k-p/w forward has been impressive in League One this season with the Trotters, scoring 12 goals and registering three assists as the club finished ninth.

Valued at just £1.5m, it seems likely that Bolton would want a bigger fee than that, but it is a move that Wilson should be strongly considering, and he could well land his next £20m talent in the winger.

Aribo, who was signed from Charlton Athletic in the same division three seasons ago for a paltry £300,000, has been touted as a £20m player; and if Wilson manages to pull off a move for the Bolton gem, then it could be another shrewd signing from the Ibrox chief.

Will Rangers sign Dapo Afolayan?

Rangers rely heavily on Ryan Kent on the left wing, with the ex-Liverpool man posting 20 assists this season, so another player in this position would be a big boost for the squad.

Afolayan possesses the goalscoring ability to make him a threat to the opposition, and his versatility is also a key strength. He can play anywhere across the front three, a trait which will likely impress Van Bronckhorst.

Journalist Derek Clark recently hailed the 24-year-old’s “top notch” mentality, and the winger certainly seems to have a bright future.

Rangers will ideally be looking to get the majority of their transfer business done as early as possible in order to allow new players to bed into the squad well before the 2022/23 season starts.
