Rangers arguably conducted one of the smartest pieces of business of the summer when they managed to snap up Joe Aribo. 

The young midfielder has impressed since arriving from Charlton Athletic after failing to agree a new deal at The Valley, and his arrival signified a considerable coup for a player who would ordinarily have set the club back a fair amount.

And it looks as if Ross Wilson has his eye on another piece of transfer market wizardry too.

According to a report from Football Insider, the sporting director hopes to make a move for Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Cross-border rules mean that the Gers could land him for as little as £300,000, whereas English clubs could end up paying multi-million pound settlements.

The article also states, however, that the Potters are stepping up their efforts to tie the 20-year-old down to a new deal.

Having struggled to earn a regular place in the starting XI, Campbell has burst into contention for City after hitting three goals in two games in the Championship over the festive period.

And that could ultimately be bad news for the Gers.

If Campbell feels as if he is in line for a proper chance with the Potters, then will he be inclined to leave at any point in the near future? Perhaps not.

Of course, stranger things have happened, but a move to Rangers has always felt largely dependant on him being allowed to just drift aimlessly by Stoke.

Now that they have stepped up their efforts, as this latest report suggests, you would have to question whether or not a move to Glasgow is likely to go ahead.

The sensible answer would be probably not.
