Rangers plot swoop for starlet from English league leaders, player out of contract in 2020

Rangers have made some fantastic moves in the transfer market in recent times. 

When you think about how successful Ryan Kent was on loan last season, or how prolific Jermain Defoe has been since arriving at Ibrox, or how wonderfully Alfredo Morelos has performed in spite of the fact that he was snapped up for a relative pittance, it’s hard not to be impressed with the way the Gers have conducted their business over the past couple of seasons.

And it would appear that the club have their eyes on another coup.

According to a report from Football Insider, the Light Blues have entered the hunt for West Brom starlet Rayhaan Tulloch.

The teenager is out of contract at the Hawthorns in 2020, and it is understood that a number of top European sides are on his trail, including Olympique Marseille and RB Leipzig.

But the report claims that the Gers are willing to go toe to toe with them, and if Steven Gerrard was able to pull off this swoop it would be a fantastic piece of business.

Tulloch has five goals in 11 games for the Championship leaders’ U23s so far this term, as per Transfermarkt, and the fact that there is such an interest in snapping him up should tell you just how much quality the young lad has.

Obviously, there is always a certain amount of risk associated with signing a player of his age, but he looks as if he could be good enough to make the step up to senior football sooner rather than later, and if that is the case – and if he can be brought in on a free – then there’s no reason to believe that this gamble wouldn’t pay off for Gerrard’s men.
