Rangers in pole position to sign 20-year-old Portuguese starlet

Glasgow Rangers have been very quiet in the winter transfer window, but the Ibrox club could be looking to bring in one footballer before the window ends. According to journalist Alan Nixon of The Sun, Rangers are ‘making a move’ to sign Portuguese footballer Miguel Luis on loan from Sporting Lisbon.

Miguel claimed that the Gers club are looking at a lengthy loan for the Portuguese under-21 international as Steven Gerrard is looking to bolster his squad. The 20-year-old midfielder is a highly-rated young talent who has played 21 games for Sporting. He has played seven matches this campaign.

Gers have done well to remove some of their unwanted players from the squad with the likes of Eros Grezda, Andy King and Jamie Murphy leaving Rangers this month. Therefore, there will be a vacant position for Luis who can play anywhere across the midfield.

Miguel will be on a lengthy loan deal which will give him time and space to settle down at the club, and there’s a possibility of a permanent move if he impresses under Gerrard. Luis has vast potential and can become a top-class midfielder if he continuous improvement.
