Rangers: Pete O’Rourke drops verdict on chances of signing USA international

A claim has emerged regarding Glasgow Rangers‘ chances of landing one of their targets in the summer transfer window…

What’s the talk?

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has warned Light Blues supporters against expecting Borussia Dortmund’s Giovanni Reyna to join the Premiership club ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The USA international has been linked with a move to Ibrox, but the reporter does not believe that a deal to bring in the 19-year-old is likely.

O’Rourke told Football FanCast: “It depends. If he’s not getting first-team football at Dortmund then maybe the player might push for a move ahead of the World Cup in November with the USA. Never say never in football but I’ll say it’s highly unlikely.”

Supporters will be gutted

This claim will surely leave Rangers fans feeling gutted, as Reyna has the potential to be a superb signing for the club this summer.

He is the son of former Gers player Claudio Reyna and it would be a heartwarming story if the teenager came to Glasgow and was also a success for the Scottish giants.

He is a promising young talent who has already shown glimpses of his quality in a major European league in the Bundesliga. He has scored six goals and provided nine assists in 57 Bundesliga outings for Dortmund to date, which shows that he has the ability to make things happen in the final third.

In the German top flight last term, he averaged 1.5 key passes per game across 10 appearances as he consistently created chances for his team-mates.

These statistics suggest that he could be a difference-maker for Rangers by scoring and setting up goals on a regular basis for Gio van Bronckhorst, potentially turning losses into draws and draws into wins.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

Therefore, Gers supporters must be gutted that a deal for the 19-year-old is unlikely, as they will surely want to see a player with his quality coming to the club. It seems as though they will not be able to enjoy his talents next term and may watch on in envy if he produces a great season for Dortmund – or elsewhere.

It is worth noting that O’Rourke did not completely close the door on a possible move and that things could change between now and the end of the transfer window. For now, though, fans will be gutted over the slim chances of this transfer happening.
