Rangers are reportedly interested in Middlesbrough right-back Jed Spence before the transfer window and he could be a great addition to Steven Gerrard’s team this summer if Ross Wilson manages to take him to Ibrox.
What’s the word?
According to ESPN, Rangers, Everton and Wolves are passionate about the young defender, while Tottenham Hotspur have also been said to have watched him earlier, so it seems clear that his future is probably far from Riverside Stadium.
The report suggests that Middlesbrough will be ready to hear offers of over 5 million British pounds for the 20-year-old footballer, who has two years under his contract with the club Teesside.
Would it be a good signature?
Spence has been a regular at Middlesbrough for the past two seasons of the Championship, making a total of 65 appearances in which he has contributed two goals and no assists.
Would Spence be a good signature?
This season, the defender made 37 appearances in the second level of English, for which he had on average less than an impressive 6.42 ratings for his performances.
However, he is clearly highly regarded and would not be a regular first team at this level at the age of 20 if he did not have a lot of talent, so he could be a solid addition to Gerard’s team this summer.
Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock, who would see everything during his long managerial career, was recently praised for Spence, saying:
“If you look at one or two of the full-backs around us – the boy from Liverpool, Trent Alexander-Arnold and the boy from Manchester United from the Palace (Aaron One-Bissaka) – they are all the same type as Jed.
“He has great abilities and when you have such abilities, it is criminal if you do not reach the very top. But as I told him in the first few weeks, he will only be guilty if he does not reach the very top. “
If Spence can reach the tops of Alexander-Arnold or Van-Bisaka in the future, then he will definitely be a useful signing from the Light Blues this summer.
Although the Rangers have two quality players competing at right-back James Tavernier and Nathan Patterson, the £ 1.8 million-valued Spence could add some depth to the team ahead of next season and could provide a backup if he gets injured.
We saw this season that in Tavernier’s absence, Gerard was forced to call the inexperienced Patterson and although it proved to be a huge success, it could easily backfire, so adding another option to the right back before next season would be reasonable. a move by Ross Wilson, especially if he was as talented as Spence.
