Thatd 'd be nice, he's fecking great. Think he's more likely to end up a winger than striker though.

Young, Left footed, forward/winger, available for free, what more can one ask for?

Doesn't make sense to me, we'd have 4 young RW options that aren't ready for the first team.

Amad, Pellistri, Elanga and then this kid.

Pellestri isn't going to make it at Utd. He barely ripped up any trees for a small Spanish team.

Amad's future is in the balance too. I'm not that excited about him either. Rangers used 16 players in their final and he wasn't one of them. Thats not suggesting to me we have a world beater on our hands at all.

Elanga is average. He might make a decent squad option but that's about his limit.

Elenga will end up being a right wing back

As far as I am aware, this guy is out of contract in June I believe... and despite his age, he does appear to be more physically ready for the step up than Amad or Pellistri right now.

Seems like a very good, low risk, potential high reward type signing for me.

If he’s got any sense he’ll sign for us rather than Utd.

Yes agree with that. Elanga has the best chance as he has been used, but needs to go up a couple of levels to stand out and be the quality player we need.

He’d have tougher competition with you guys though.

Which says more about us really..

Not ideal to bring in another kid for the right wing but if you’re good enough you’re old enough.

Pellistri has been on a bad loan granted, whoever that doesn't mean the answer is this guy. He's not played for any England youth teams since 2018, scored 1 goal in the championship in 16 appearances with most of those being starts.

For comparison Amad who you claim had a terrible loan at Rangers got 3 goals in about half as many minutes, when he was in and out of the side which is no good for building match rhythm.

The benefits of this guy seem to be his flashy style and explosiveness, but I don't think he's any better than Elanga or Amad and likely wouldn't get the minutes needed to develop here. Just screams of wanting to sign anyone at all at the moment from our transfer muppets

I agree. without meaning any disrespect, the barrier to entry to your first team is likely lower, and i think as a club you seem to do quite well with youth development.

I have no idea who this guy is. I'm just saying Amad isn't the answer and neither is Pellestri.

Amad should be getting regular game time at Rangers at the bare minimum if he's going to succeed here. The level between the SPL and PL is huge. The fact he's not suggests he's clearly not that great.

No idea why he's so highly rated amongst you all. What's he done that's so amazing? He will be playing in France or back in Italy within two seasons I can guarantee it.

There's a bit of nuance to why Amad didn't play much in Scotland. He was made a scapegoat of after the Celtic defeat , and struggled to get a look in afterwards, although when he did play, he did well, which is backed up from the fact a lot of Rangers fans supposedly want him back for next season.

I'm not completely sold on him myself, but it's too early to write him off as well, especially given he suits Ten Hags style of play.

Know nothing about him. From the highlight video, he's like a left footed Elanga for me. Can do some good stuff, looks dynamic but ultimately doesn't look tidy.

Looks different to Elanga, more in his locker it seems.

Maybe more trick, but I see a player getting past the first man then run into traffic/ overhit pass/ get tackled. First impression based on highlight of course. I hope I am wrong.

18 year old, 16 appearance in the championship, 1 goal, 2 assist, left footed right winger......what's the point we already have Amad, we need a more mature right winger.

On a free it’s a no brainer, if it works out then brilliant but if not then we move a talented young English forward on for a decent fee which we’ve seen Liverpool and Chelsea do countless times.

This is the type of signing we used to be very good at.

Also its the right profile of player. Someone not afraid to continually run at defenders. Im sick of our wingers cutting back and playing sideways passes.

This lad looks explosive. At least its 9 minutes of highlights of him taking the piss out of defenders with his pace. We desperately need players like this.
