Rangers: Light Blues accept bid for Ibrox dud Cedric Itten

A major Rangers development has emerged on Ibrox dud Cedric Itten heading into the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

According to reports in Switzerland, via the Glasgow Times, Young Boys have agreed a fee with the Light Blues and are now set to sign the centre-forward.

The report claims that he is expected to put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the club back in his home country, with the Gers bringing home a fee of £1.55m.

Supporters will be buzzing

Ibrox supporters will surely be buzzing with this update as it means that the club are finally set to part ways with the outcast.

Should Itten be sold?





Itten has not been good enough for Rangers this year and it is the right decision to allow him to leave on a permanent basis. Selling him will take his wages off the bill and the £1.55m fee could be reinvested into bringing a fresh signing in to bolster Gio van Bronckhort’s squad.

The Swiss striker spent the first half of the campaign on loan to Greuther Furth in Germany. In 12 Bundesliga appearances, the 25-year-old scored two goals and lost 67% of his duels as he struggled to find his best form during that spell.

He was then recalled by the Gers in January to add another option at the top end of the pitch. However, he failed to grasp his opportunity to impress and found game time hard to come by in the final few months of the season.

In the Premiership, he only scored one goal in six matches as he lost a whopping 74% of his individual duels on the pitch. He did not offer a great deal in the final third and was bullied off the ball by opposition defenders as he found the physicality of the division difficult to handle.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

Itten did not make a single appearance in the club’s Europa League run as he was omitted from the European squad as van Bronckhorst decided that he was not needed.

This shows that the manager does not hold the striker in high regard and his minimal game time in the top-flight backs that up, with his statistics suggesting that it was the right decision.

Therefore, fans will now be buzzing that an underperforming player is set to be sold in the coming days or weeks. Hopefully, Wilson can use the funds to sign someone more capable of making an impact in the first team in comparison to Itten.
