Ross Wilson has string of reports on Sunderland forward Ross Stewart, Rangers could firm up major interest - report

Rangers chief Ross Wilson already has a string of transfer reports on Sunderland forward Ross Stewart.

That’s according to the Daily Record, who shares that a major transfer is now possible in the upcoming summer window.

It is suggested that it will only happen should the Bears sell one of their current crop in the final third at Ibrox.

Alfredo Morelos is currently out for the season, but no doubt his exploits under Giovanni van Bronckhorst will attract interest again.

Then you have Cedric Itten and Kemar Roofe, with the latter the hero against Braga on Thursday evening.

Wilson will be expecting interest, and it looks as though he will be ready to move on Stewart if he needs to.

The 26-year-old has one year left on his deal in the summer and has scored over 20 goals in League One this season, becoming somewhat of a star for the Black Cats.

Ready?

This all depends on which, if any striker leaves Ibrox.

Should Morelos leave, we would most likely need a much bigger name to come in and replace him given what he has achieved.

No offence to Stewart, but his career has only really just taken off after dropping down to League One in England, and that isn’t enough to become the main man at Ibrox.

His recent inclusion in the Scotland squad is a huge step, and he could certainly be a strong option off the bench as things stand.

Should Itten leave, that is when things could get interesting, as Stewart would become that target man that offers a different threat to what we currently have.

This is certainly one to watch, and it looks as though Wilson is ready to strike should he need to in the coming months.
