Rangers: Ibrox side “interested” in deal to sign new winger after Matondo

An update has emerged on Glasgow Rangers and Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s pursuit of reinforcements in the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

Journalist Sacha Tavolieri has revealed that Rangers are one of four clubs eyeing up a potential swoop for Theo Bongonda ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

He Tweeted: “After confirmation with his agent Fouad Ben Kouider, nothing has yet been decided in Théo Bongonda’s file where #Fenerbahçe, #Olympiakos and #RangersFC joined with #AlAin interested clubs by the attacker of #KRCGenk. To be continued.”

Ross Wilson is plotting a swoop for the winger and it has been reported that Genk want a fee in the region of €7m (£6m) for his services this summer. Although, it remains to be seen whether or not the Scottish giants will firm up their interest with a bid.

Ryan Kent 2.0

By securing a deal to sign Bongonda before the end of the window, Rangers can land their new Ryan Kent to be a wing wizard in the Premiership.

The DR Congo international has been in sensational form for Genk in the Belgian Pro League in recent seasons and has shown that he has the quality to make a huge impact in the final third on a consistent basis.

Last season, he scored 12 goals and set up two – creating seven big chances – whilst playing out wide on the right as a left-footed player. This came after he found the back of the net 16 times and provided eight assists – creating ten big chances – in 2020/21.

Bongonda is a gem capable of scoring and creating goals at an impressive rate from the wing, cutting in onto his stronger foot as an inverted winger much like Kent is for the Gers.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

The English attacker is a right-footed player who typically lines up on the left and he has racked up 12 goals and 17 assists in the last two Premiership campaigns combined. He has proven himself in a Light Blues shirt and produced many moments of magic for the fans to enjoy over the years.

In a swoop for the Genk attacker, Rangers can now find a clone of the ex-Liverpool man to play on the right side of the front three. This would leave Gio van Bronckhorst with two magical wingers capable of scoring and creating goals at will, which is an exciting prospect for the Dutch head coach and the supporters ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
