Oliver McBurnie has the talent and motivation to succeed at Rangers

As reported by The Sun, Rangers are interested in signing striker Oliver McBurnie from Swansea City this summer.

What’s the story?

The upcoming transfer window is going to be a hugely important one for Rangers as they look to build a team worthy of competing for major honours in Scottish football next season, under the management of incoming boss Steven Gerrard.

The Sun report that one of Gerrard’s big priorities is attempting to sign Swansea forward Oli McBurnie, who spent the second half of this season out on loan at Championship side Barnsley.

The paper reckon that the Light Blues are so interested in his transfer that they’ve already offered £4m for him.

Can they get a deal for the talented youngster over the line?

Would he be a good signing?

Having spent a number of years shining for Swansea’s U23 side, McBurnie got a taste of first team football at Championship level for the first time recently, joining Barnsley on loan in January.

There he’s proven himself to be a capable forward, netting nine times in 17 appearances.

He won the Championship Player Of The Month award for February, got a Scotland call-up and impressed his loan club so much that they awarded him Player Of The Year, despite only being at the side for a few months.

It’s fair to say it was a successful spell and demonstrates that he has the ability to star for the Ibrox side in the Scottish Premiership.

Also a boyhood Rangers fan, the lure of playing in Glasgow will give him extra motivation to be a success.

This is certainly a potential move worth keeping an eye on.
