Rangers round-up: Solanke competition, Sadiq to leave and American duo on trial
Crystal Palace want Solanke
Rangers face competition in pursuit of their top striker target.
According to The London Evening Standard, Crystal Palace are keen on Dominic Solanke and believe signing Ruben Loftus-Cheek could persuade the former Chelsea youth duo to reunite at Selhurst Park.
Solanke has not played for Liverpool this season but has impressed for England’s under-21 team.
The 21-year-old is Rangers’ top January target, according to The Express, but they face a battle next month.
Umar Sadiq heading to Perugia
Rangers flop Umar Sadiq is set to join Perugia on loan for the rest of the season, The Scottish Sun reports.
The 21-year-old’s spell at Rangers has been disastrous and Roma are set to cut his loan spell short and send him elsewhere.
Sadiq failed to find the net in four outings for the Gers and he will be axed to make space for other additions.
The Nigeria youth international is now heading back to Italy, where he will play Serie B football.
American duo on trial
Rangers have taken two American players on trial, Steven Gerrard confirmed to Sky Sports News.
Andrew Gutman and Matthew Polster are trying to earn contracts with the Gers.
Gutman, 22, is a left-back who was at Indiana Hoosiers – a university team in the United States.
Polster is a 25-year-old right-back or central midfielder who plays for Chicago Fire and has one USA cap to his name.
