Report claims Rangers wanted Chris Willock, now set for Huddersfield move

The Gers were keen to add the Benfica flyer to their ranks.

Rangers had hoped to sign Benfica winger Chris Willock for £1 million during the transfer window but look to have been beaten by Championship outfit Huddersfield Town (Daily Mail).

Rangers had hoped to take the youngster to Ibrox with Steven Gerrard keen on adding the player to his ranks before the window closes.

Rangers were held by Hibernian on Sunday with the 2-2 draw enough to take them back to the summit of the Scottish Premiership.

The Light Blues have Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent as their first choice wide options but in reserve there isn’t a lot else.


Jordan Jones has been on the bench during the season so far and if reports are to be believed, he will be allowed to leave before the window closes (Sky Sports).

With the Daily Mail making the claim about the interest in Willock it would perhaps suggest Gerrard does fancy another wide player coming in.

Rangers are out to try and stop Celtic making it ten league titles in succession this season and he will want his squad to be well-stocked.

An injury to Kent or Hagi right now could prove catastrophic fro Gerrard and with that in mind, his transfer plans seem to make sense.

Willock played twice for Arsenal before moving to Benfica, where he failed to make the grade with the first-team ranks in Portugal.

Still considered a young talent, the versatile performer might have proved an ideal addition to Gerrard’s squad at Ibrox.

It does, however, look to be back to the drawing board for the Light Blues boss.
