Dessers Linked with Rangers Transfer: Ronald de Boer’s Stance Revealed
Nigerian striker Cyril Dessers has been heavily linked with a transfer to Scottish Premiership side Rangers this summer, and former Ajax midfielder Ronald de Boer has recently revealed his stance on the potential move.
According to Soccernet, Dessers has been on Rangers’ radar since the end of last season. The 28-year-old hitman, who currently plays for Ceremonese after signing from Genk last summer, had a disappointing season, managing only six goals and two assists in 26 games. Ceremonese was eventually relegated from the Serie A, opening the door for Dessers to potentially leave the club.
Rangers, who have not won the Scottish Premiership for the past two seasons, see Dessers as a potential solution to bolster their attacking options. However, the Nigerian still has three years left on his current contract, giving Ceremonese the upper hand in negotiations.
Despite Dessers’ lackluster season, De Boer believes that the striker has the potential to be successful at Rangers. The former Ajax star stated that Dessers is a good striker but can be ineffective when lacking confidence. De Boer also noted that Dessers is more physically suited to Scottish football, making him a potential asset for the team.
De Boer emphasized the importance of managing Dessers correctly, stating that the player could have bad patches if not well-managed. He described Dessers as an opportunistic player who performs best when he has confidence and is allowed to play on instinct. However, when Dessers is lacking in form or confidence, his limitations become apparent.
De Boer also compared Dessers to Rangers’ current striker, Alfredo Morelos, highlighting the Nigerian’s superior work ethic. He suggested that if Rangers are looking for a player similar to Morelos, Dessers would be a suitable choice due to his strong work ethic and ability to wait for scoring opportunities.
Ultimately, De Boer believes that Dessers has the potential to add value to Rangers if he feels comfortable and is supported by the manager. However, he also warned that the outcome could go either way, depending on Dessers’ state of mind.
- As Rangers aim to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season, Dessers could prove to be a valuable addition to their squad. With his physicality and goal-scoring instincts, Dessers has the potential to make an impact if managed correctly.
