Michael Beale Personally Trying to Sign 24 y/o for Rangers, He Really Wants to Join

Rangers’ pursuit of Feyenoord’s Danilo has intensified as manager Michael Beale personally works towards signing the talented forward, according to recent reports. The Scottish Premiership giants have been active in the transfer window, determined to regain dominance over their Old Firm rivals, Celtic.

With several notable signings already secured, the arrival of Cyriel Dessers has prompted Beale to express his satisfaction, emphasizing the added attacking quality the striker brings. As Rangers undergo a major overhaul following the departure of key players, the club’s pursuit of Danilo showcases their determination to further strengthen the squad.

Beale Excited About Dessers’ Arrival

In light of Cyriel Dessers’ acquisition, Beale expressed his enthusiasm for the club’s recent business. He highlighted Dessers’ experience playing in Holland, Belgium, and Italy, as well as his participation in European competitions. Beale emphasized that the club had been seeking a specific player profile and believes that Dessers’ multifaceted qualities both with and without possession will significantly benefit the team. The manager also emphasized Dessers’ age, suggesting that his maturity and leadership would positively impact the squad.

Danilo: The Next Target for Rangers

Following the successful signing of Cyriel Dessers, reports indicate that Rangers’ transfer activities are far from over. Beale is said to be personally involved in the pursuit of Feyenoord’s Danilo, as stated by The Daily Record’s print edition (via Ibrox News). The 24-year-old attacker reportedly shares the club’s enthusiasm and is described as “desperate” to join Rangers during the current transfer window. This development signals the potential departure of additional players from Ibrox.

Danilo’s Impressive Track Record

Danilo’s performance in the Eredivisie has drawn attention, particularly from former manager Steven Gerrard, who is currently with Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia. Although he falls slightly short of teammate Santiago Gimenez’s goal tally, Danilo managed to score 10 goals and provide three assists in the Dutch top flight last season (WhoScored). Furthermore, the Feyenoord forward recorded three assists and ranked joint-fourth in the squad for attempts at goal per 90 minutes during the 2022/2023 season, making him an appealing prospect for Rangers (WhoScored).

Praise for Danilo’s Skills

During his time at Ajax, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag lauded Danilo as the club’s “best finisher” before the player ultimately chose to join Feyenoord. Commenting on his partnership with Danilo, teammate Santiago Gimenez suggested that the Brazilian attacker holds the key role of the “first striker” at Feyenoord. Gimenez emphasized the collective effort of the team, highlighting how they work together towards a common goal.
