Tom Lawrence now keen on Rangers transfer with European football and silverware available

Tom Lawrence has indicated that he is keen on a move to Rangers if the chance arises, according to the Daily Record.

The newspaper has reported on their website that the Welsh international is ready to pick his next club after leaving Derby County at the end of the 2021-22 season.

It is shared that Lawrence wants his future to be resolved quickly with the World Cup in Qatar approaching at the end of 2022, with spots up for grabs.

It has been suggested that a move could have been too expensive for the Bears, but things may have now changed given that he is a free agent.

The door is now said to have been opened for a move with Joe Aribo on his way out to Southampton.

Lawrence is more of a winger than a central playmaker, but he has played as a striker before so the transition into a central player in the number 10 role could easily happen.

Get it done.

This would be a very smart piece of business.

Bringing an international player in at Ibrox for no transfer fee would be a no-brainer, and there would be limited risk – something that should pique interest from Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

John Lundstram proved it takes time to gel into this system last season, but once he did, he was one of the best players in a blue shirt.

Lawrence is capable of the magical too, which has been proved with his numerous wonder goals.

Imagine having someone at your disposal with that much skill, and bringing him for free means that we can spend the money from Aribo on another playmaker to strengthen the final third dramatically.

Antonio Colak is on the verge of his move to Ibrox, and it looks as though Ross Wilson is definitely putting his foot on the gas as we move into July and nearer to the action kicking off again.
