RANGERS EYEING TYMON TRANSFER – REPORT
Scottish Premiership giants Rangers are reportedly eyeing a move for Stoke City left-back Josh Tymon. This is according to the report from Scottish Sun which stated that the Europa League finalists want to sign the Stoke City defender during this summer’s transfer window.
Stoke City manager Michael O’Neill would be hoping to keep Tymon and the other important players in his squad while adding new players ahead of another Championship campaign. However, the Stoke City boss could struggle to hold on tohis best players in the face of interest from Rangers and other big teams on the Europeanfootball scene.
The aforementioned media portal reported that Rangers are keen on signing Stoke City star Tymon to boost their squad this summer. Croatian star BornaBarisic is the first-choice left-back at Rangers and he could leave the club this summer. 23-year-old Tymon is a very good transfer option for Rangers if Barisic leaves the immediate past Scottish champions this summer. Barisic was part of the Rangers team that won the Scottish Premiership title for the first time in over a decade last season while Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard was their manager. He was also part of the Rangers team that lost the Scottish Premiership title to rivals Celtic this season and the Europa League final to German team Eintracht Frankfurt via penalties. Rangers were bidding to win a first European title in many decades until they lost to Frankfurt on penalties after Welshman Aaron Ramsey missed the decisive penalty.
Rangers target Tymon is a regular in the Stoke City first-team. He has made 86 appearances in all competitions since joining the Potters from Hull City as a youngster. The £5m-rated player missed just two games in the Championship last season to highlight his status as a key player for the Potters especially on the left side of defence or attack.
