Rangers want permanent deal to sign Bayern Munich ace Malik Tillman

Rangers now want to sign Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Malik Tillman, according to the Daily Mail.

The newspaper has reported on their website that the Bears want a permanent deal for the 20-year-old, who made four senior appearances for the giants last season.

It is also shared that Rangers are closing in on Rabbi Matondo for £2.5million as Giovanni van Bronckhorst puts his foot on the pedal for the new signings at Ibrox.

Tillman has two caps for the United States of America and is clearly an exciting prospect having been included in squads with Bayern for the Champions League.

The young playmaker is said to be open to the prospect of moving to Ibrox, with more playing time a major reason behind a potential move away from Germany.

With James Sand in Glasgow for another year, Tillman may find it easy to settle in Scotland with one of his international teammates in the squad.

Wow.

Something has really been in the water at Ibrox this week, with Ross Wilson and Van Bronckhorst really getting stuck into senior signings after a slow start.

The window started with numerous new youthful additions for the academy but attention has quickly switched with three new faces already in the squad.

Tillman, alongside Matondo, could take that up to five in the space of a week as the money really starts to get splashed around after the sale of Joe Aribo.

Maybe it took that guarantee of cash from Southampton before we could put our foot down, but it was certainly needed with those Champions League qualifiers coming up.

Tillman is a relative unknown in Europe, but you don’t start your career at Bayern Munich and get in their squad for the Champions League without that star talent to your name.

This could be a really exciting move, and it shouldn’t cost much either – keep your eyes peeled.
