Leeds fans react as Rangers reportedly interested in signing Caleb Ekuban

Rangers are reportedly interested in signing Trabzonspor striker Caleb Ekuban ahead of the summer window as Steven Gerrard looks to add firepower to his side – and Leeds United fans have responded on Twitter.

Turkish outlet Fotospor have claimed that Rangers are rivalling Lazio for Ekuban, 25, as the Ghana international continues to shine for SuperLig leaders Trabzonspor. Despite a lengthy injury this season, he has had a hand in 14 goals during 24 games.

The report claims Rangers are interested in landing Ekuban, who has scored four goals in five Europa League matches this season. It is believed Trabzonspor want as much as £8.8million for Ekuban this summer, given he has a contract until 2022.

However, Ekuban has only come into form since moving on loan to Trabzonspor in the summer of 2018 from Leeds. The Whites bought Ekuban from Italian side Chievo, the same team teenage goalkeeper Elia Caprile left to join Leeds in January.

During his spell at Leeds, Ekuban struggled. He scored just two goals in 21 games for The Whites, suffering a number of injuries during his time under Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom.

Leeds fans reacted in shock that Ekuban could be on his way to Rangers for a sizeable fee, while some believe it could be a good move for the striker.
