Rangers reach agreement in principle to sign Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo

Rangers have now reached an agreement in principle to sign Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo, according to the Scottish Sun.

The newspaper has reported on their website that the Bears are now closing in on their fourth major arrival of the summer already at Ibrox, following Antonio Colak, John Souttar and Tom Lawrence.

It is even shared that Rangers are hopeful of concluding the deal which will see them beat numerous English clubs to the Welsh international.

Rangers have more than shown they are a major pull still.

Getting to that Europa League final did so much more than just getting noticed, with players now wanting the move to Ibrox more than ever to try and achieve that same feat again.

Even better, these players will want to come in to try and do it in the Champions League.

Beating English clubs to another signing in the shape of Matondo after doing it for Lawrence just continues to prove our strength in the window.

In place.

With this agreement now said to be in place, this one should move very quickly.

Matondo will add yet another attacking talent to the ranks and it is desperately needed, with serious doubts over the futures of Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.

Add on top of that losing Joe Aribo, with Amad Diallo and Aaron Ramsey returning to their parent clubs, Ross Wilson has moved quickly this week to get numerous deals over the line.

Matondo will join Lawrence and Colak in making a new attacking dynamic in the squad, with other areas possibly targeted after this one is finally done.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be very happy with how efficient the Bears have been in the window in these last couple of weeks, with a profit still set to be made despite numerous incomings.

This should progress very quickly in the next 24-48 hours and it looks as though we are already looking at our fourth new signing of the summer – bring it on.

In other Rangers news, the Bears are set to have funds released for major new transfer activity with one exit now all but done
