Rangers – Transfer News: New signing arriving, he could be the next Calvin Bassey !

Rangers have bolstered their defense with the acquisition of Clinton Nsiala from AC Milan. The young Frenchman is seen as a player with great potential, and former Ranger Marco Negri has been monitoring his progress closely. While he may not be an immediate starter, there’s hope that he could emulate Calvin Bassey’s success story at Ibrox.

Bassey’s journey from Leicester City to Rangers, and then on to Ajax for a hefty fee, serves as inspiration for what Nsiala might achieve. Described by Negri as very aggressive and comfortable with the ball at his feet, Nsiala fits the modern mold of center-backs despite lacking senior-level experience.

Patience will be crucial in nurturing Nsiala’s talent and helping him adjust to the pressures of playing for a high-profile club like Rangers. Fortunately, language barriers won’t hinder his development since manager Philippe Clement can communicate in French thanks to his stint at Monaco.

However, expectations are always lofty at Ibrox Stadium where players must quickly prove their worth even if they’re considered developmental prospects. “No-one gets too much time at Ibrox,” warns Negri. Nonetheless, he believes Nsiala has what it takes to make a significant impact on the team.

This signing reflects Rangers’ strategic approach: scouting promising talents available at minimal costs, developing them into key players within the squad, and potentially selling them for substantial profits later on. With interest from other Italian clubs already reported, securing Nsiala seems like quite the achievement for Rangers.

Negri shared that AC Milan was disappointed when Nsiala declined to renew his contract – a testament to how highly valued he was there. For Rangers though, this move signifies another step towards building a strong future foundation – one which now includes Clinton Nsiala among its ranks.
