Rangers considering Dowell on loan

| Wednesday, 05 December 2018 0comments  |  Jump to last
The Mirror is claiming that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is considering a loan move for Everton's England Under-21 midfielder Kieran Dowell.

Now heading the Scottish Premiership for the first time since their forced relegation 5 years ago, the Old Firm side are looking to increase creativity and goalscoring.

Dowell spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest in the Championship, scoring 9 goals in 38 games, while also getting 4 assists.

There were high hopes at Finch Farm that Dowell could become the next player off Everton's impressive Academy production line, with Blues supporters remaining hopeful he could finally make the breakthrough into the first team in the 2018-19 season.

He underlined his potential value, slotting in the winning goal for England U21s at the Toulon Tournament, their third trophy win in succession.

Dowell featured in all but one of Everton's pre-season games under the watchful eye of new manager, Marco Silva; he did not join the cadre of 14 players sent out on loan, and looked like he might be given a chance in the first team.

But that would come only in League Cup games where he failed to impress, getting hauled off at half-time in the Third Round tie against Southampton after The Saints had gotten their go-ahead goal just before the break.
