Rangers’ Top Transfer Priority for January Unveiled as Scouts Launch Vigorous Pursuit

Philippe Clement is determined to strengthen his squad with a wide attacker, especially following the departures of Ryan Kent and Fashion Sakala. Rangers are reportedly prioritizing the signing of a winger.

TEAMtalk reported that Rangers scouts have been actively scouting potential wingers across Europe in search of the ideal player to fit Clement’s philosophy. The club’s board is fully backing the Belgian manager’s vision for building a team that aligns with his tactical approach.

The need for a wide attacker has been evident since the summer, and it came as a surprise that no replacement was signed for Kent. With Sakala also leaving, and Rabbi Matondo, who can play out wide, currently injured and weeks away from a return, Rangers’ options in that position are limited.

Players like Fashion Sakala and Todd Cantwell have played out wide for Rangers, but they prefer drifting inside rather than hugging the touchline and stretching the opposition’s defense. Clement is seeking a winger who can provide width and contribute to the team’s attacking threat.

Rangers’ scouting in recent seasons has been criticized, and there is hope that Clement can utilize his connections to bring in reinforcements in multiple positions over the next two transfer windows.
