Rangers must secure Tyrhys Dolan transfer

Rangers currently have the fifth-oldest squad in the SPFL in terms of the average age (26.4) of their current crop of players.

In terms of their transfer business during the current summer window, one figure that the Gers have been linked with that could help bring the average age of the squad at Ibrox down is Blackburn Rovers winger Tyrhys Dolan.

How many signings did Rangers make in the last summer window?

Earlier this month, it was reported by Geoff Peters on Twitter that Rangers, as well as fellow SPFL side Celtic and Premier League club Nottingham Forest, are keen on signing the 20-year-old winger this summer for a possible fee of between £2m and £3m.

After spending time with Manchester City and Preston North End at youth level, the attacker joined Blackburn during the 2020 summer transfer window.

Since then, the youngster has gone on to make 76 senior appearances for the Lancashire club, in which he has scored eight goals and delivered six assists.

His latest season with the Championship club saw the Englishman find the net four times and provide three assists in 34 league appearances, whilst playing in a number of different positions across the pitch.

In fact, one of his goals was labelled as “wonderful” by Tony Mowbray back in October, highlighting the attacking talent he has for such a young player.

To further show what sort of player he is, on a list of similar players to the Blackburn starlet, according to Football Transfers, is former Real Madrid and Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

With 113 goals and 219 assists to his name in 636 senior and youth appearances at club level, as well as winning numerous trophies for club and country, having a potential next version of the German in the shape of Dolan will be a mouth-watering prospect for Giovanni van Bronckhorst and the Gers.

Having also shown his versatility throughout his long and illustrious career in addition to scoring and creating goals on a very regular basis, it’s easy to see why the comparison has been made between the 33-year-old and the young Blackburn prodigy.

Moving forward, given the attacking prowess that he has shown throughout the latest campaign at his current club, if Rangers get the chance to secure a deal for him and give him the opportunity to develop his talent at Ibrox, this could be a big coup for the club and give them many long-term benefits.
