Rangers transfer: Report claims Arsenal and Gers eye Abdul Abdulmalik
Rangers are amongst a host of clubs monitoring teenage striker Abdul Abdulmalik, with the Daily Mail reporting that Arsenal are keen to rival the Ibrox side for the 18-year-old in the transfer window.
Abdulmalik is yet to make his first-team debut for Championship side Millwall. However, he is attracting a lot of high-profile attention.
The forward has scored four times in six FA Youth Cup games this past season.
But it appears that he could soon be on the move. According to the Daily Mail, he is out of contract this summer.
And while he has been offered fresh terms, the Mail reports that he is ready to move on.
That may be music to the ears of the likes of both Rangers and Arsenal. According to the Daily Mail, both clubs are admirers of the starlet.
Swansea City meanwhile, have reportedly had an approach rejected by the Lions.
Rangers transfer may make more sense for Abdulmalik despite Arsenal links
Should Rangers and Arsenal both put offers on the table, Abdulmalik faces an incredibly tough decision.
Both options would see him join massive clubs. Of course, the Gunners remain one of the biggest teams in the world despite their recent struggles.
Steven Gerrard’s men meanwhile, have a Champions League campaign to prepare for. They won the Scottish Premiership title this past year.
Obviously, he is unlikely to be in the first-team fold at either club initially. But the pathway at Ibrox may be slightly clearer.
Arsenal have the likes of Folarin Balogun and Nikolaj Moller knocking on the first-team door.
Rangers also boast incredibly talented young players. But there is potentially an opening for a young striker to come in and put themselves in a strong spot in the pecking order.
But much may depend on which clubs come forward with offers for Abdulmalik in the coming weeks.
