Rangers could get 'huge talent' Todd Cantwell, 'exciting' business - Keith Jackson

Rangers are about to sign a “huge talent” in Todd Cantwell whose move to Ibrox looks imminent, according to Daily Record journalist Keith Jackson.

The 24-year-old has only a few months left on his current deal at Norwich City, and he is set to move to Ibrox in January. Jackson suggests that it will be an “exciting” piece of business from the club.

Cantwell has previous experience of playing in the Premier League, but he has struggled at Carrow Road in recent years.

“That depends on what version of Cantwell they’re getting. The one who was banging on England’s door two years ago or the one who can’t get a game at Norwich now. At his best, he’s a huge talent who would challenge Ryan Kent and Malik Tillman for a creative role behind the strikers. It looks like an exciting bit of business,” wrote Jackson for the Daily Record.

Crowd pleaser

Cantwell is a fantastic player and he should be a handy addition to the club. 

He has made over 125 appearances for Norwich City, and proved his class in the Premier League when he scored seven goals in the 2019-20 season. 

His form has dropped gradually in the past couple of seasons, and it remains to be seen whether he can rediscover his mojo under Michael Beale. 

He is a technically gifted player who will definitely add more creativity to the side. At the moment, Rangers are really lacking that cutting edge, but Cantwell can provide flair. 

Rangers are expected to get better under Beale when Ianis Hagi will return to his best shape. The trio of Ryan Kent, Cantwell, and Hagi can be lethal for any side. 

The Bears are looking to add more depth to the side in January, with Nicolas Raskin being targeted. 

The club do not appear to be looking to sell either Kent or Alfredo Morelos in January, both these players are out of contract next summer.

In other Rangers news, the Gers want to offer a four-and-a-half-year contract to seal the signing of this European ace.
