Rangers reportedly have Kilmarnock attacker Jordan Jones in their sights, as manager Steven Gerrard continues to try build his dynasty at Ibrox.
According to Sky Sports, the Gers have made an approach to their Scottish Premiership rivals for their 24-year-old.
The report details that Gerrard’s side are trying to land him on a pre-contract agreement so he joins in the summer when his deal with Kilmarnock expires.
Jones is enjoying a decent season for Kilmarnock, who are third in the league over the winter break and firmly in the title picture.
The Northern Ireland international has already chipped in with two goals and four assists in the league this campaign.
He is a left-winger with lightning pace and trickery, while he’s proving to be a threat in the Scottish top flight.
But Jones would certainly find it a step up if he did join Ibrox for next season and Gerrard would need to improve him if he is to become a serious Rangers first teamer.
He still needs to improve his quality in front of goal and for now it’s hard to imagine him ahead of Jamie Murphy, Eros Grezda or Scott Anfield as it stands.
A stronger goalscoring output in the second half of the season would be a major help, but snapping him up on a free is certainly worth the low-risk gamble.
