Although Glasgow Rangers midfielder Steven Davis continues to impress in the light blue shirt, the fact he turns 36 in January means the Ibrox side should keep an eye out on a potential successor.
And it looks as though one player reportedly sought after by Rangers could be available next month after seemingly falling out of favour at his current club, with his contract expiring in the summer.
According to a report in the Glasgow Times in October, the Gers have been put on “high alert” after John Lundstram turned down a new contract offer at Sheffield United.
The Mirror, meanwhile, speculated around the same time that Rangers are looking to pounce on the Blades midfielder in January on a cut-price deal.
Now, Yorkshire Live has reported that United will listen to offers for Lundstram, who has made 11 Premier League appearances this season but didn’t make the squad for the Manchester United game this week.
However, Blades boss Chris Wilder stressed on Thursday that there have been no enquiries for the 26-year-old or any of the other players in his 25-man squad.
Lundstram is a high-calibre midfielder who has “all the attributes”, is a “real menace to other teams and a great player to have”, according to teammate Billy Sharp.
However, Lundstram looks very much ready and eager to seek pastures new, and Rangers would be a great shout for him.
With Davis in the twilight of his professional playing career and Glen Kamara reportedly being on the radar of other clubs, the Gers should certainly be keeping an eye out for new players in the middle of the park.
