Rangers eyeing up deal to sign young attacking midfielder

An update has emerged on Glasgow Rangers and their attempts to improve the squad at Ibrox in the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

According to the Daily Mail, Rangers are plotting a bid to snap up forward Malik Tillman ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The report claims that the player is open to the idea of making the switch to Scotland because of the prospect of regular first-team football.

It is stated that the Gers are attempting to securee a permanent deal to sign him, although it remains to be seen how much Bayern Munich would want for him.

Gio van Bronckhorst’s Roberto Firmino

Rangers can land the Dutch head coach his own version of Liverpool false nine Roberto Firmino by signing Tillman this summer.

The 20-year-old predator is a promising young talent who has shown plenty of promise in his short career so far and could be an excellent signing for the club.

In the 2019/20 campaign, he produced 16 goals and nine assists in nine outings for Bayern’s U19 team. He also scored six goals for Germany’s youth sides before committing his international future to the USA.

His efforts at youth level for club and country led to talent scout Jacek Kulig dubbing him a “very interesting” attacker and seven first-team outings for Bayern – scoring one goal.

Kulig previously listed his strengths as “pace, finishing, dribbling, off the ball movement, creativity, technique” and compared his style of play to that of Firmino’s.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

Across first-team and youth level for Bayern, he has scored 42 goals and provided 25 assists – to go along with his six strikes at international level. This suggests that he has the potential to score and assist goals from a false nine position, just like Firmino has over the years for Liverpool.

The Brazil international has scored 98 goals and set up 74 for the Reds since arriving in England and won the Champions League and Premier League along the way.

He has been able to achieve success with Jurgen Klopp’s side at the pinnacle of club football, making a big impact in the final third along the way, and Rangers now have an opportunity to sign their own version of him.

Tillman is a player with huge potential, as evidenced by his statistics and Kulig’s scout report, meaning he is a player worth taking a gamble on as he could develop into someone who can score and assist on a regular basis in the future.
