Rangers’ pursuit of Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria has been held-up, according to a report, but the 20-year-old is still expected to become part of Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox revolution.
According to the Daily Record, there has been a delay in getting a deal completed to bring Ejaria to Ibrox but a deal should go through in the next few days.
Ejaria would become the Gers’ fourth signing after Scott Arfield, Allan McGregor and Jamie Murphy all joined the Light Blues this summer.
Football Insider verdict:
It doesn’t seem to be anything major holding up Ejaria’s move so hopefully it should be concluded by the start of next week at the earliest. The 20-year-old is an exciting prospect and is someone who should be able to make an impact at Ibrox straight away. With the Gers not returning for pre-season training until June 15th, a short delay isn’t any major concern but if it keeps getting pushed back then it will start raising eyebrows. Ejaria will be desperate to prove what he can do after a disappointing loan spell with Sunderland last season so it is a deal that suits everyone involved and should hopefully be a big success. One thing’s for certain, the Gers haven’t wasted any time in trying to improve on last season and get a squad in place capable of challenging Celtic for the Scottish Premiership crown and ending their recent domination of Scottish football.
