‘Looking To Play 7-2-1 Next Season’ ‘Very Good Player’ Rangers Fans Debate Swoop For England Under 20 Defender

Rangers are one of the teams interested in Everton centre-back Lewis Gibson, according to the Athletic (paywall). The 19-year-old is unhappy with his lack of first-team opportunities at Goodison Park and his current deal expires in the summer.

He can sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January, with the Gers, Newcastle and a number of German clubs said to be weighing up approaches for the England Under 20 international.

Gibson is a highly rated young talent but fans on Twitter are not sure if Rangers really need another centre-back in the squad:


With Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic, Filip Helander and George Edmundson, the Light Blues are well stocked in the centre of defence, but, as with Joe Aribo, the chance to sign Gibson may be too good to pass up.

The teenager came through the academy at Newcastle and has caps at Under 17, Under 18 and Under 20 level for England. However, since moving to Everton two years ago, he has failed to make a first-team breakthrough and he is yet to make his senior debut.
