Rangers eyeing Oluwasegun Lawal

An update has emerged on Chippenham Town striker Oluwasegun Lawal, regarding Steven Gerrard’s interest in bringing him to Ibrox.

What’s the talk?

According to AllNigeriaSoccer, the Gers are tracking the youngster, who is the brother of Celtic player Bosun Lawal, ahead of a potential January switch.

The report claims Premier League sides Liverpool, Newcastle United, Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Watford are also looking at him.

Should Rangers sign Lawal?





Aribo 2.0

Ross Wilson could land Joe Aribo 2.0 by securing a deal to sign Lawal in January. First of all, he is of Nigerian descent and secondly, he’s a versatile midfielder and forward, much like the current Gers gem.

The report claims that he is capable of playing as a number 10, a winger or a striker, whilst Aribo has played as a central midfielder and right winger for Rangers already this season.

This means that the club could bring in another versatility gem who is capable of featuring in a multitude of roles. Gerrard would surely love to have another option in that mould as it allows him to be flexible with his team selections and his choice of players on the bench, as Lawal could provide cover for several roles.

Aribo has started all 12 Scottish Premiership matches this season, with Gerrard placing his trust in him for every single game so far. This shows how much he values the ex-Charlton man’s ability to play in more than one area of the pitch, which is why Lawal could also be a shrewd addition to the squad.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

At the age of 19, he has plenty of time ahead of him to develop and the manager could slowly bed him into the first-team set-up. That may mean he spends a season out on loan to play regular football or instead, trains with the Gers squad and soaks up as much information from the current stars as possible.

There is little available in the way of performance data on Lawal, but the report that a number of Premier League teams and Rangers being interested in him suggests that he has caught the eye with his performances for Chippenham and could have the potential to make the step up.

If he is able to make the leap to playing for Rangers and his brother makes the grade at Celtic, it could provide an intriguing new storyline for Old Firm clashes in the future. The clash already has plenty of spice, but a brother vs brother element being thrown into it could be the perfect seasoning!
