Rangers should still pursue Dowell even if they sign Davis next month

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is in the market for a new creative midfielder this January.

And according to various reports, Everton youngster Kieran Dowell and Southampton veteran Steven Davis are on his wish-list.

The Scottish Sun reports that Rangers are closing in on Davis after Southampton gave him the green light to leave the club on a free transfer this January.

But even if Rangers land the Northern Ireland international, this should not put them off moving for Dowell.

The Mirror claims that Rangers are chasing a loan deal for Everton starlet Dowell.

Dowell has just two cup appearances to his name for the Toffees this season so a loan spell could help his career.

At Nottingham Forest last season, the England under-21 international scored nine goals and registered four assists in the Championship.

Dowell has the potential to make it at Premier League level but he needs to be playing at such a vital stage of his career.

A loan move to the Gers would be beneficial for all parties and it shouldn’t be a case of Davis or Dowell for Gerrard.

Rangers could potentially land Davis and Dowell, bringing in a mix of experience and youth without spending a penny on transfer fees.
