Rangers reportedly have Oldham Athletic enforcer George Edmundson in their sights ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to the Daily Mail, the Gers will battle with Stoke City, Hull City, Fleetwood Town and Sunderland for the defender’s signature.
The report details that Steven Gerrard’s side are considering a bid for the centre-back from League Two, who is valued at around £450,000 by Oldham.
Edmundson is a highly-rated talent with a good level of senior experience already and he’s caught the eye of the Ibrox outfit.
The 21-year-old has made 54 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring two goals and supplying five assists in return.
He is a 6ft 3in towering definer that would make a straight replacement for exit-bound Joe Worrall and Gareth McAuley.
Gerrard does need new recruits in the heart of defence, but should not be looking for someone that will break up his current partnership.
The combination of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic has played the last five consecutive league games together, with the team winning every single match.
They look to have the potential of a real solid duo for years to come and should be given the starting spots next year.
Goldson, 26, has been a mainstay in Gerrard’s team this year and is a leader at the back.
Meanwhile, 22-year-old Katic has had to be a lot more patient for his opportunities and showed he is such a calm influence on the ball.
The winning run at the back-end of the season has surely done enough to convince Rangers they are the way going forward.
