Arsenal have joined Rangers in the hunt to sign 19-year-old Wigan Athletic attacker Kyle Joseph, according to The Mirror

The Gers were linked with a move for Joesph during the January transfer window but despite Wigan needing to sell a deal was never agreed.

Celtic are have also been linked to a move for the forward with Premier League heavy hitters Arsenal now interested.

The Mirror claim Rangers, Celtic and Arsenal and clubs in Europe are all monitoring the 19-year-old as he continues to impress this term.

The player will be available on a free this summer upon the expiration of his contract which would make a transfer ideal for Rangers.

However, with so many clubs interested in Joesph, the young man will have a huge decision to make over his future.

With Premier League sides like Arsenal also interested in Joesph, you can’t help but feel a move to Ibrox is looking more unlikely for the youngster.

Though the striker was born in Scotland and has featured for the Scotland Under 19 side so perhaps we have a slight advantage.

He has five goals and one assist in 14 League One outings this season which isn’t a bad record and he is clearly a player to be earmarked for the future.

He must have some potential if big clubs like Arsenal are looking at him so if we can pull off a move for Joseph it would be a huge coup.

The summer is a long way off but we do have the advantage of being able to offer Joseph a pre-contract agreement so this transfer story could be one to watch over the coming weeks as us and European clubs can make our move before Premier League sides.
