GvB can waive £10k-a-week liability as Rangers watch ‘scary’ £8.4k-a-week ‘bag of tricks’
Glasgow Rangers are leading the race to sign Dutch starlet Crysencio Summerville in the summer transfer window.
What is the speech?
That’s according to a claim by German outlet Frankfurter Rundschau (via Sport Witness), who said Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side held an advantage over Hamburg in the race to sign the Leeds winger at the end of the season. current campaign.
The report goes on to outline these advantages, as the Scottish champions already play in their country’s top division, regularly compete in European competitions and have a larger transfer budget than the German side.
Van Bronckhorst can chop Wright with Summerville
Since the £1.3m move from Summerville to Elland Road in September 2020, the 20-year-old has struggled to hold onto a place in the Leeds first team. However, it is nonetheless clear that the £8.4k-a-week winger has incredible potential.
Indeed, despite making just five Premier League appearances this season, the £1.8million-rated striker – whom Ben Parker described as a “scary” talent – has been in sensational form for the white side under 23, scoring six goals and setting up one. assist in his 12 Premier League 2 outings.
It’s clear to see why Chris Powell appeared hugely excited about the Dutch Under-21 international’s future in the professional game, saying of Summerville’s loan time at ADO Den Haag: ‘You could see the raw talent that he had. He is very small, he measures about 1.50 meters, but he has a wonderful balance. One on one is his strength, against the players. He’s a pretty free spirit on the wing, in a good way.
“He’ll turn you on, he’s a bag of tricks. There’s talent there, it’s just how he’s exploited and what the coaches demand of him.
“He played for the U18s and the U19s for the Netherlands, so he is well regarded in Dutch football. There is no doubting his talent. He will have to learn how Leeds want him to play, in the U23s, and the accept. It’s an exciting signing.
Considering how well Scott Wright followed his £200,000 move to Rangers from Aberdeen in February 2021, it’s clear to see why Van Bronckhorst would be interested in a deal for Summerville ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Indeed, in his 14 Premiership appearances this season, the £900,000-rated striker has scored just two goals, registered no assists and missed two big chances for his side. Those returns saw the £10,000-a-week winger average a 6.89 SofaScore Match Rating, ranking him as the 10th worst Rangers player in the league.
As such, with some reports already suggesting that Van Bronckhorst could be looking to offload the 24-year-old this summer, it would indeed seem like a wise move on the part of the Dutchman, who could then reinvest the funds received from the former international.
