Jordan Campbell drops Rangers transfer update

Glasgow Rangers have been very active in the summer transfer window thus far, bringing six new players to Ibrox, but it seems as if their transfer business could soon be done.

What’s the word?

Following the additions of Antonio Colak, Rabbi Matondo, Ben Davies, Tom Lawrence, John Souttar and Malik Tillman, the Gers have bolstered their squad in defence, midfield and attack.

While Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey have both left for significant transfer fees, Giovanni van Bronckhorst has worked quickly to replace them, and Ridvan Yilmaz looks set to arrive as Rangers’ seventh signing in the coming days, with the Turkey international a likely heir to Bassey at left-back.

However, it seems as if the 21-year-old will be the final recruit ahead of the upcoming season unless we see any more key players leave Ibrox.

The Athletic’s Rangers reporter Jordan Campbell shared this update on Twitter, writing: “When asked how close Yilmaz is to being announced as a Rangers player, Giovanni van Bronckhorst says that he expects him to be the final piece of business for this transfer window unless players go out.”

Supporters will be gutted

Although Rangers supporters will no doubt be happy with the transfer business their side have concluded so far this summer, the club have made a profit and the Ibrox faithful might have hoped to see more of the Aribo and Bassey money invested into the squad.

Do Rangers need more signings?





Ahead of Yilmaz’s arrival, Rangers have spent around £9m on new players, while they have received around £28m in fees, so there is still plenty of cash in the bank for a marquee signing should Van Bronckhorst want it.

Supporters may feel that spending this money would be worth it if any potential new signings can help them secure a spot in next season’s Champions League, with Gers’ first qualifying game against Union Saint-Gilloise to come next week.

A spot in Europe’s elite club competition will earn Rangers a significant financial boost, so it could well be worth the risk of bringing new players in, and supporters may well be disappointed to hear that Yilmaz could be their final signing of the window.
