Rangers: Ross Wilson handed major transfer boost

A huge development has emerged which will hand Ross Wilson and Rangers a major boost heading into the summer transfer window.

What’s the talk?

According to German outlet WAZ, one Gers transfer target looks set to leave his current club at the end of the season, as they are on the lookout for a replacement.

The report claims that Schalke 04, recently promoted to the Bundesliga, are in the market for a new goalkeeper as Martin Fraisl’s contract expires at the end of next month.

Gers faithful will be buzzing

Rangers fans will surely be buzzing with this news, as it suggests that the club will be able to snap up the shot-stopper on a free transfer this summer.

The Gers and soon-to-be English Championship side Norwich are both reportedly keen on the 29-year-0ld goalkeeper and will be rubbing their hands together with glee at this update. Instead of needing to splash out on a transfer fee to convince Schalke to part ways with him, they will be able to go straight into negotiations with the player and his agent.

Should McGregor be given a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This means that Fraisl would be a cheap addition to the squad in comparison to signing someone on who the club would need to lash out a big sum of money to entice them from their current club, which is why this update is a huge boost for the Light Blues.

Supporters will also be delighted by the prospect of the ‘keeper coming in, as he would be a much-needed signing for Rangers. FFC published an article covering the news that Allan McGregor is close to penning a new contract at the club and explained why he needs a younger goalkeeper to challenge him next season.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

Fraisl can do exactly that, as he has enjoyed a solid season between the sticks in Germany. He has averaged a SofaScore rating of 6.79 across 26 starts in the 2. Bundesliga, making only one error directly leading to a goal throughout the campaign, in comparison to McGregor’s three.

The Austrian is also 11 years younger than the Ibrox veteran, which means that he can be a long-term option for Van Bronckhorst. Instead of going from one year to the next wondering whether or not McGregor will be able to continue for another season, Rangers can transition into Fraisl being the first-choice for years to come – if he is able to impress in Glasgow.
