Rangers should plot raid for Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury
Rangers are a point behind leaders Celtic in the Scottish Premiership table as it stands, but will need some investment in January if they are to keep within touching distance of them.
Steven Gerrard needs a couple of fresh faces in at Ibrox and ideally a new central midfielder would boost the squad.
The Light Blues need a new option to compete alongside the likes of Ryan Jack, Lassana Coulibaly, Scott Arfield and Andy Halliday.
One man that should crop up on Gerrard’s radar is midfielder Hamza Choudhury from Premier League club Leicester City.
Leicester manager has refused to rule out a loan exit for the 21-year-old and Rangers should pounce if he becomes available.
“I don’t know his future or whether he will remain with us or we put him on loan but it was important to give him confidence [against Manchester City,” Puel said about Choudhury, as quoted by the Leicester Mercury.
Choudhury was handed just his second appearance of the season in Leicester’s first team on Tuesday night and was brilliant in the penalty shootout defeat to Manchester City.
The youngster wasn’t overawed by brushing shoulders with some top-class Manchester City players and was the best Foxes performer at the King Power Stadium.
He is a no-nonsense midfielder that is a great tackler and keeps it tidy in the centre of the park.
It would be a surprise to see Leicester offload their highly-rated talent on loan after his display, but that could be to Rangers benefit if they consider an approach for him.
