Rangers reportedly monitoring Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell along with Celtic
Rangers and Celtic are monitoring Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell, who has just months left to run on his contract, according to the Independent.
They report that Campbell’s deal expires at the end of the season and that both of Scotland’s top two are keenly watching the situation.
Wolves and Crystal Palace are named as two English top flight clubs who are also keen on the 20-year-old, who is the son of former Arsenal and Everton hitman Kevin Campbell.
He has a big reputation – having represented England at Under 20 level – and could well prove to be a key part of Stoke’s survival bid under former Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill.
TBR’s View – Will either club be able to land Campbell this month?
Given Campbell’s contract situation, it seems most likely that either Celtic or Rangers would be able to land him on the end of the season on a free.
If either team did get him now, there’s no doubt he would boost their firepower ahead of a stage of the season where their squad depth will be tested, with the title race and the return of European football.
With competition from the Premier League, where wages are generally higher and the lack of a transfer fee may allow Wolves or Palace to offer even more, it could be a tough transfer battle ahead.
