Rangers are once again being linked with Bright Osayi-Samuel and Ross Wilson should snap up this second chance to bring him to Ibrox this summer after failing to secure him for Steven Gerrard’s side back in January.
The Gers and their Old Firm rivals were both heavily linked with the winger during his time at QPR but he opted to join Turkish side Fenerbahce instead, with the English Championship club willing to let him leave early after he agreed a pre-contract deal with the Super Lig giants.
However, things have not gone to plan for the former Blackpool man in Istanbul, as in 19 appearances for the Yellow Canaries in all competitions, he has managed just one goal and one assist.
Turkish news outlet Fotospor have now claimed ahead of the summer transfer window that both Rangers and their rivals Celtic are keen on signing him again this summer, although a potential swap deal with AS Monaco could also be on the cards, which suggests that the Gers will have to act quickly if they want to bring him in.
If Osayi-Samuel could rediscover the form he showed with QPR, where he contributed six goals and nine assists in the 2019/20 season, then he could definitely prove to be a solid addition to Gerrard’s side ahead of next term.
The Nigerian attacker’s decline in form since his move to Turkey is clear to see. In the first half of the season he managed three goals and two assists for Mark Warburton’s QPR side, averaging a solid 6.91 rating from WhoScored for his performances, whereas his displays in Turkey have earned him a much less impressive 6.55 average rating.
Warburton was full of praise for the 24-year-old when he starred in a 6-1 thrashing of Cardiff City back in 2020, describing his display as “outstanding” and lauding his “blistering pace”.
A move to Rangers could help Osayi-Samuel get back to his best, and if Fenerbahce are keen to get rid of him after just half a season, then Wilson should ensure that he takes advantage this time and brings the winger to Ibrox.
