Rangers should attempt to bring in the young Arsenal winger to improve their options in forward areas.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has made his intention to add further quality to his squad public knowledge, claiming he needs one or two more players to complete his group (The Scottish Sun).

The former Brentford boss is renowned for his attractive footballing philosophy; something that was surely taken into consideration when Arsenal allowed Gedion Zelalem to join the Scottish giants.

Another loan option for Warburton to consider would be Zelalem's Arsenal teammate Serge Gnabry.

The electric 21-year-old winger struggled to adapt to Tony Pulis' style whil on loan at West Bromwich Albion last term, while serious questions were asked of his attitude by Pulis himself.

He is, however, still a precocious talent, and it could be argued that all he needs is to be provided with the correct environment to display his talents.

In this particular case, that environment would constitute playing under a manager with similar philosophies to Arsene Wenger's ideals, and that is why a move to Ibrox would suit all parties involved.

The jump up from the Scottish Championship to the Premiership will be a huge one, and in order for Rangers to compete with Celtic, Aberdeen and Hearts, they need to inject genuine quality and pace into their side.

There is one thing defender's hate playing against and that is pace - something the young German has in abundance.

His style of play is direct in nature, and he uses his speed to drive at defenders with the ball close to feet. He also possesses an impressive delivery, which the likes of Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller could thrive off.

The Ibrox club have already shown their ambition this summer with the signing of Joey Barton, and if they could add Gnabry to their squad, they would be in a fantastic position to challenge for the title.
