RANGERS SIGN ARSENAL PLAYER ON LOAN
Rangers have signed an Arsenal player on loan until the end of the current campaign, reports say.
The player is a Spanish midfielder Jon Toral who is 21 years old. The player was on loan in Spain where he played for the first half of the season after previous loan spells in Brentford and Birmingham City.
Rangers have had quite a busy schedule in the transfer market this window. They acquired another Premier League club’s midfielder earlier this week. Bournemouth loaned them Emerson Hyndman on a loan deal until the end of the season. The club is even set to play German side RB Leipzig in a friendly match this week.
“I’m really happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” the Arsenal youngster said. Toral played six games in Spain for Granada but has worked with the current Rangers boss Mark Warburton whilst at Brentford. He score 14 goals comibined at Brentford and City but he is yet to appear in an Arsenal shirt despite his move since 2014.
“I hope I can get to the game in Germany, if not the cup game next week. I know Gedion Zelalem had a great time here last season when he was on loan from Arsenal, so that was on my mind. I spoke to Mikel Arteta as well and he told me I would enjoy my time here, so that helped me take the decision,” the player disclosed.
Toral added that Warburton came to Spain and convinced him to join the side. He said he hoped to enjoy his stay there after the good moments they shared at Brentford. Toral opined that Rangers played a similar style to Arsenal, adding that his focus was to help the team finish high. The Championship side are second in the current standings.Uncategorized
