Why Sean Goss is Interesting Rangers This January Transfer Window

Sean Goss is the latest name linked with a move to Rangers during this January transfer window.

The QPR midfielder is out of favour under Ian Holloway at Loftus Road and is on the lookout for a new club this month as a result.

And reports today suggest that Rangers could be that new club, with Graeme Murty looking to strengthen his squad ahead of a big second half of the season.

But why is Goss interesting Murty? We take a look at his credentials:

He’s an Ex-Manchester United Talent

While United might not be producing the same quality of player as they did when Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham were breaking through, but they still have some of the best talent in Europe and Goss was part of that for five years before eventually leaving for QPR. He was actually a £100,000 signing from Exeter in 2012 and made one first team appearance for the club in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain. He may not have made it at United, but that’s no shame.

QPR Spent £500,000 on Him – So He Should Be Cheap

It was only a year ago that QPR signed Goss for half a million pounds, but it’s just not worked for him at the club. So, you’d expect Rangers will be able to get him at a lower price than that given his lack of regular game time over the last year? That surely suits the Ibrox club.

Ross McCrorie has emerged as a quality option in centre midfield for Rangers, while Jason Holt, Niko Kranjcar and Graham Dorrans are all good players too. But Goss could be the passer Murty’s men have been missing for much of this season so far. He can play simple and complicated passes – that’s perfect for the modern day midfielder.

He Knows His Way Around a Free-Kick

This is What Les Ferdinand Had to Say About Him Before His QPR Move

Per “Sean’s very highly rated and the mere fact he is even looking at coming to us is a real positive.

“He’s an excellent young midfielder and exactly the type of player we’ve been looking at. That deal is close to being completed.

“We now need to raise funds to go out and purchase players, so if we can bring a few in who we think will have premium sell-on value, like Sean, then we’re very much moving in the right direction.”
