Rangers Now in Hunt to Sign South African Forward

Tashreeq Matthews, the 23-year-old South African winger currently plying his trade with IK Sirius in the Swedish Allsvenkan, has garnered attention from both Rangers and AZ Alkmaar. However, the competition for his signature seems to be heating up, with reports indicating interest from South African giants Kaizer Chiefs.

Matthews’ reputation precedes him, especially considering his remarkable performance last season. With an impressive tally of 11 goals and 10 assists while operating from the wing, the South African youth international has undoubtedly caught the eye of scouts and football enthusiasts alike. Such statistics make him a formidable prospect for any club seeking attacking prowess.

The speculation surrounding Matthews’ potential move to Rangers has been fueled by reports emanating from South Africa. Soccer Laduma, a reputable source, has identified both Rangers and AZ Alkmaar as clubs expressing interest in the talented winger. This revelation sets the stage for a potential transfer battle between the Scottish and Dutch outfits.

Adding an interesting twist to the narrative, the report suggests that Kaizer Chiefs, a prominent force in South African football, has entered the race for Matthews’ signature. Citing “reliable sources,” the report outlines a three-horse race for the winger’s services, indicating that the competition is heating up.

Despite the growing interest, Matthews seems to be tied to IK Sirius until 2026, adding a layer of complexity to any potential negotiations. This contractual commitment could influence the dynamics of the transfer dealings and may impact the strategies of the interested clubs.
