Rangers are reported to be in talks with Macedonian midfielder Mile Todorov but do we really need more midfielders?
According to journalist Filip Mishov, the 19-year-old is in Scotland and featured as a trialist in Tuesday’s 4-0 reserve defeat by Middlesbrough.

 


The Gers already have a wealth of midfielders – as well as having Matt Polster on trial – so there will be fierce competition for places.
Although he is typically a defensive midfielder, he can also play wide and has been used as a winger a few times.

Adding Steve Davis this month has only added to that.
Todorov plays for Croatians NK Novigrad and typically plays as a holding midfielder.
At only 19, it could be that he finds himself in Graeme Murty’s reserve squad initially.
Ryan Jack, Ross McCrorie and Jordan Rossiter all play similar roles in Gerrard’s side.

If Polster signs then he’s also someone who has a similar function so it seems unlikely both would sign.
Todorov is a Macedonian youth international and has made 6 club appearances this season.
Despite being under contract until 2020, it shouldn’t cost a huge amount to sign the youngster.

There seems to be something of a focus on that part of Europe for Rangers’ scouting team.
Eros Grezda, Borna Barisic and Niko Katic were all signed this summer from Croatian sides.
It looks as though this move could be with one eye on the future.
If it’s not, he’s going to have to be fantastic to force his way into the side.
