Ex-Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has backed his former club to sign Hibernian forward Florian Kamberi on a permanent basis this summer.
The Albanian impressed during a brief loan spell at Ibrox earlier this year, and with the 25-year-old reportedly available for a knockdown price, Ferguson thinks Gers boss Steven Gerrard should sanction the move:
“He’s obviously burned his bridges at Hibs so I see no reason why a deal can’t be done. If Rangers can pick him up for a couple of hundred grand then it would be a no-brainer as far as I can see because of the promise that he showed during his first couple of months in Gerrard’s squad.”
Kamberi certainly didn’t do anything wrong during his time with the Light Blues but it does appear that the Scottish club are looking at strikers in a higher price bracket.
The likes of Anderlecht’s Kemar Roofe and Peterborough’s Ivan Toney have been mentioned as possible targets, although both could be seen as potential replacements for Alfredo Morelos.
If Rangers are looking for a third striker to supplement the likes of the Colombian and teammate Jermain Defoe then Kamberi would certainly be the most economical choice. Whether Gerrard sees the Hibs striker as a worthwhile addition to the squad, though, we shall have to wait and see.
