Rangers: Ibrox side could make a “significant” signing this summer

A big Rangers claim has emerged over their budget at Ibrox during the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell has claimed that Ross Wilson has the money to land a major addition to the squad ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, despite the addition of Antonio Colak.

Joe Aribo is now closing in on a move south of the border and the journalist has confirmed that it will allow the club to spend more in the window.

He Tweeted: “There is a budget for a significant fee for a key player + fund other signings from Bosman/cross-border markets etc. Extra spending was always going to be from sales like Aribo.”

The reporter followed that up with: “And to answer those asking, I’m sure there would be funds left over after Colak for fees, based on what I was told. Aribo moving for good money will free up more funds, though, and that should allow Rangers to reinvest in several positions. Then it is a test of the model…”

Supporters will be buzzing

This update will leave supporters buzzing as it suggests that they could be in for a thrilling end to the window, with Wilson potentially looking to bolster the team with a ‘significant’ deal for a player.

The Light Blues chief has until the end of August to get business done and his work may now be accelerated by the prospective sale of Aribo to Southampton. He will leave a huge gap in Gio van Bronckhorst’s squad and an attacking midfielder may now be a position on the club’s radar.

Supporters will be excited by the potential of a big figure being spent on a signing as the last player the club brought in for a fee in excess of £5m was Ryan Kent.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

The English winger has been a huge success since arriving at the club as he played a major role in the team’s 2020/21 Premiership title success. He produced an outstanding ten goals and nine assists in the Scottish top-flight to help Steven Gerrard’s team to the trophy, averaging a SofaScore rating of 7.23.

Kent followed that up with a whopping 20 assists in all competitions in the 2021/22 campaign. The 25-year-old has proven himself to be a key player for the club and this shows the level of quality Rangers can bring in by spending big money.

Of course, that does not mean that they are guaranteed to land a good player as they still need to pick suitable targets to fit van Bronckhorst’s system. For now, though, the fans will be buzzing by the prospect of another ‘significant’ deal coming in.
