Rangers are set to welcome Thomas Isherwood back to the club for a second trial as he looks to earn himself a transfer move this summer from Bayern Munich, according to a report.
Ibrox Noise, the reputed fan news website covering all events at Ibrox, claim that the Light Blues are set to see the 20-year-old giant, who stands at 6’4″ (Source: Transfermarkt) return to Glasgow imminently, but while Celtic have held interest in the Swedish defender’s capture, it is the Gers who have stolen a charge.
The youngster’s contract with Bayern expires this summer, and will be looking to earn himself a deal at Rangers as part of the Steven Gerrard revolution.
Football Insider verdict
Rangers know they need some defensive reinforcements this summer with David Bates’ imminent exit and Russell Martin’s possible departure leaving just Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso as the senior options – with neither of the remaining pair having looked convincing at the heart of the defence. Isherwood looks like an exciting prospect but whether he has what it takes to step straight into the first team at Ibrox remains to be seen. The Gers need some serious experience and quality to join this summer and while the Swedish youngster might be a prospective talent, he is only one of numerous reinforcements that Gerrard needs to bring in as he tries to close the gap to Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table. Perhaps an older, wiser head, alongside the Bayern man’s potential, would give the Gers what they need going forward right now. Who that experienced signing is will be up to Gerrard.
