Rangers have been linked with a transfer move for Queens Park Rangers midfield Sam Field, according to a report from journalist Dean Jones [via GIVEMESPORT].
Jones said that Field, along with other Championship players that Rangers have been linked with, ‘could fit in quite well’ – but he also conceded that Rangers fans will not be ‘doing cartwheels’ over the news.
Field is not the only Championship player that the Gers have been linked with in recent weeks – they are also thought to be interested in a move for Millwall’s Jake Cooper.
Signing players from the second-tier of English football is never the most exciting of prospects for a club that has won the Scottish Premiership on 55 occasions – but that doesn’t mean that Field won’t be able to make a lasting contribution at the Ibrox Stadium.
What did Dean Jones say regarding Sam Field?
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said: “They’re not thrilling targets to have, and I don’t think there will be Rangers fans out there doing cartwheels over being linked with players like this. But it’s not the first time Championship players of this type have been linked with Rangers since Michael Beale joined the club.
“There have been times when the rumours have turned out to be true or very close. There also have been times when they’ve not caught fire. So, we’ll have to see whether these two can become legitimate transfer options.
“But clearly, they have at least looked into them. And I think that’s wise because they won’t go too far adrift if they’re players of this level and could fit in quite well.”
How would Sam Field improve the Rangers midfield?
One of Field’s best attributes is his height – he stands at 6ft 3, making him much taller than the average central midfielder. This allows him to win aerial duels in the middle of the park – he’s also very strong and physically capable.
Additionally, he can also play in defensive midfield. This is a massive bonus for the Gers – their only natural holding player, Glen Kamara, is touted for an exit in the ongoing summer transfer window.
