Reports from Spain yesterday claim that Rangers have an interest in Barcelona youngster Pablo Torre. The report also suggests that Rangers were keen to sign him before he agreed the deal to go to Barcelona but since his move in the summer he’s struggled for game time at the Camp Nou.
Name – Pablo Torre
Age – 20
Nationality – Spanish
Position – CM/CAM
Club – Barcelona
Barcelona paid £4.3m to prize him away from Racing Santander but between La Liga and the Champions League he’s only made 6 appearances so may be looking for a way out in the summer to guarantee more game time.
There have been suggestions that Rangers may look to strike a deal similar to the one which brought Malik Tillman in this summer but it’s currently unclear what Barcelona have in mind for the midfielders future.
Suited more to playing behind the striker or on the wing he’s incredibly confident and comfortable with the ball at his feet and will take on defenders at will. He also possess great vision and passing ability which would make him a key creator in any team.
He’s the type of player Rangers don’t really have in central areas, he’s small and nimble with a really low centre of gravity. This makes him difficult to knock off of the ball and means he either gets away from defenders to create attacking opportunities or gets fouled.
He impressed in his only Champions League start against Plzen, posting these numbers;
- 78 Minutes Played
- 1 Goal
- 95.2% Pass Accuracy
- 1 Key Pass
- 50% Ground Duels Won
A really promising young midfielder, if Rangers can strike a deal similar to the Malik Tillman one this summer it seems like a no brainer given his profile. Would you be interested in seeing him at Ibrox?
