Rangers: Fabrizio Romano drops Lewis Ferguson update

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is now set for a Glasgow Rangers transfer disaster over a target who the Ibrox side were keen on.

What’s the news?

The news surrounds perennial Rangers target Lewis Ferguson and how Aberdeen have agreed on a fee with Serie A side Bologna in the region of €2.5m (£2m) according to Fabrizio Romano, who tweeted: “Bologna are now set to sign Scottish midfielder Lewis Ferguson, deal in place with Aberdeen. It’s done for €2.5m & add-ons.

“Ferguson will fly to Italy tomorrow to undergo medicals and then sign the contract.”

Van Bronckhorst will have to move on to other potential targets as Ferguson moves to Serie A and supporters will be gutted the club missed out on the 22-year-old.

Rangers will move on

Ferguson’s move to Serie A proves that Scotland is still continuing to produce excellent talent and there is genuine hope that he goes and shines in Italy.

Many thought Ferguson would have followed in his uncle’s – Barry Ferguson – footsteps and joined the Ibrox side at some point in his career – with Gers having been linked with a move this summer – but it now appears as if any deal will have to wait a few years.

This season represents an important one for the Gers as they aim to wrestle the Premiership title from Celtic. The 22-year-old excelled last season in a campaign that saw Aberdeen struggle majorly, he scored 16 goals in all competitions and his performances obviously stood out to Bologna.

His attacking talents were regularly demonstrated and he could have scored even more, with the midfielder having 3.34 shots per match, while also missing three big chances.

With Joe Aribo on the verge of leaving Ibrox, the Dutchman will need to replace his creativity and Ferguson could have been ideal. He managed 0.8 key passes, created two big chances, and took 76.2 touches per match.

How many signings did Rangers make in the last summer window?

The fear is that the Scotland international excels in Italy and seals a bumper move to the Premier League, giving the Gers no hope of matching either transfer fee or wage demands.

It looks like that ship has sailed and Van Bronckhorst will move on quietly to other targets.
