Rangers will try to finally negotiate deal for Morgan Whittaker as Swansea City play hardball

Rangers are keen to land Morgan Whittaker but Swansea City are playing hardball over the sale of the winger, as reported by the Daily Record.

The Gers have had two bids rejected by the Swans already, but the Glasgow giants will try to “finally” negotiate a deal this month.

The 22-year-old is keen on a move to Ibrox, and his relationship with the English championship side is quickly deteriorating after sitting out of their squad over the weekend.

He was recalled from his loan at Plymouth Argyle, and the player looks like he wants a fresh start.

Smart addition

Whittaker would be a brilliant addition to the side. He netted nine goals for Argyle, provided seven assists, and was a key figure in helping them to the top of League One.

It came as a bit of a surprise that he was recalled by the club at the start of the January window. The player was very unhappy with the decision and said that he was devastated for leaving Plymouth. 

Whittaker has failed to make a single appearance for Swansea after returning from his loan spell. The Swansea manager wanted to use the attacker for the clash against Queens Park Rangers before Whittaker pulled himself out.

Clearly, the player is pushing for a move, and let’s hope both the club and the player manage to solve the situation urgently.

The Bears will definitely try to lure him to Ibrox but they will have to match or at least come close to the player’s valuation. 

Michael Beale is looking to add several new faces this month, with the likes of Todd Cantwell and Nicolas Raskin could join the Glasgow giants in the coming days.

In other Rangers news, the Gers want to offer a four-and-a-half-year contract to seal the signing of this European ace.
