A transfer update has emerged that may help Rangers to bring back one of their Ibrox loanees from the 2021/22 campaign…
Journalist Fredrik A. Filtvedt has revealed that Amad Diallo may go back out on loan next season.
The attacker is not going to settle for a reserve role and would be willing to seal another temporary move away from Old Trafford, like the one he just had at Ibrox.
Filtvedt Tweeted: “Amad Diallo naturally wants playing time and is open for another loan. Has been in dialogue with Ten Hag, but nothing decided yet.”
Ross Wilson can now land Rangers their own version of the Manchester City wizard by bringing the Ivorian back for a second spell, now that they know he would be interested in another loan spell away from his parent club.
“He’s a wonderful talent and already a wonderful player so I’m sure fans are looking forward to seeing him on the pitch.
“It was interesting because Harry (Maguire) said to me the other day that he reminds him of Mahrez when he was at Leicester. Really quick, skilful, agility, can turn really quick, got great skills and I would agree with Harry – he does remind me of Mahrez.”
However, he was unable to showcase these qualities to the best of his abilities as he was trying to adapt to the rigours of Scottish football after joining midway through the campaign.
He only produced one goal contribution in his first seven league games but his end to the campaign suggests that he was starting to get to grips with the division. Along with his two goals in the last three matches, he created five chances and completed eight dribbles.
This shows that he was offering a threat in transition and was able to provide quality in both his finishing and his passing in the final third.
Now, imagine what he could do next season with this experience and a full pre-season behind him.
He can develop into Rangers’ own version of Mahrez – scoring and creating goals on his left foot from out wide – as Shaw and Maguire hinted at and that is why Wilson must pursue another loan move for the youngster.
