Harry Wilson can add fresh spark to Rangers attack this summer

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers are keen on signing Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson on loan this summer.

What’s the story?

Although he hasn’t quite yet made a first team breakthrough at Anfield, the winger signed a long-term deal at Liverpool before his loan move to Hull City in January.

It appears that there are now a host of clubs willing to offer him more first-team football next season, with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard at the front of the queue.

The Scottish Sun report that Rangers, Leeds United, Aston Villa and Huddersfield are all interested in his services.

The paper reckon that Liverpool are looking for a £250,000 fee for the loan, which would include penalties should he not gain enough first-team appearances.

What can he offer?

Still just 21 years of age, Wilson doesn’t have extensive first team experience to draw too many conclusions from, but did demonstrate on loan at Hull City that he as quality that could be a benefit to Rangers.

He scored seven Championship goals from the left flank, also creating three assists, in his half season at the Tigers. Also netting his first goal for the Welsh national team, it’s been a big year for the youngster.

It’s clear he has huge potential and already has the cutting edge to be a success in the Scottish Premiership.

Although Rangers have just confirmed the signing of Jamie Murphy, adding more flair and depth to positions in the final third would be a big benefit.

Loan deals are never ideal, permanent signings are what supporters want to see, but this is one that could be a big positive for all parties and something Steven Gerrard should definitely pursue.
