Tyrese Campbell has told friends he is”very keen” to join Rangers as the club job on prising him from Stoke City, Football Insider has heard.
Ibrox sources have told Soccer Insider that Campbell has made it apparent behind the scenes of his interest in joining Rangers and linking up with Steven Gerrard.
According to Soccer Insider earlier this week, the Scottish giants are working to tie Campbell down to some pre-contract arrangement and have offered him a better deal in recent times.
Rangers are prepared to cover a multi-million pound package to lure Campbell amid indications he’s open to a blockbuster move to Glasgow.
The striker, 20, is also firmly on the radar of Celtic and several Premier League clubs, although one edge that the Glasgow giants have is that they are able to make the most of cross-border rules to sign him for a deal #350,000 fee.
Campbell — the son of ex-Everton striker Kevin Campbell — also has an offer on the table from Stoke, the Potters are desperate not to lose him.
Supervisor Michael O’Neill has made him the focus of this Potter’s assault in recent weeks and he’s responded with several important goals, such as in Monday’s 1-0 Championship win over leaders West Brom.
The rising star subsequently limped off with a hamstring injury midway through the first half and might now be sidelined for several matches.
