Rangers have joined the race to sign Grady Diangana, with Herald Scotland reporting that the Gers have made contact with his representatives regarding a potential summer switch to Ibrox.
Diangana’s future is certainly going to be an issue that West Ham will have to consider in the coming weeks.
He has been hugely impressive during a loan spell with West Brom this term. The Baggies remain in pole position to seal automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Unsurprisingly, Herald Scotland reports that Slaven Bilic is keen to keep Diangana at the Hawthorns. But he is not the only manager planning to bid for the 22-year-old.
The report notes that Steven Gerrard is keen to take Diangana to Rangers having also wanted the attacker last summer.
Herald Scotland reports that Diangana’s preference would be to make the grade with the Hammers. However, it is suggested that his priority is to be playing regularly next season, and thus, he could be willing to consider another loan.
Interestingly, Herald Scotland adds that he could even be open to leaving his parent club permanently. He is also thought to be open to moving to Glasgow, with both Rangers and Celtic able to offer European football.
TBR View: Diangana could be game-changing signing for Rangers
Diangana has probably not played as much football as he would like this term due to injury. But he has shown that he is an outstanding talent that would be a brilliant addition to many squads this summer.
He has scored seven goals and contributed five assists in the Championship. Only two players in the Baggies’ squad have had a direct hand in more goals so far this term.
He has also previously shown glimpses of his potential in the Premier League.
If Rangers could therefore, win the race to take him on loan, it would arguably be a potential game-changer for Gerrard’s men.
Rangers should be looking to pull off something special in the market this summer. Landing Diangana would surely be that for the Gers.
