According to a report by TEAMtalk, Kilmarnock striker Eamonn Brophy is a man in demand this summer. Rangers will battle two English clubs for Brophy’s services.
Rangers will reportedly make a bid for Brophy to steal a march on their rivals. But Derby County and Leeds United want to offer him a path to English football.
Both Derby and Leeds lost in the play-offs and will remain in the English second tier next season. Brophy has been identified as a man who can help deliver promotion in 2019/20.
The Scottish striker has been in impressive form for Kilmarnock this season. With 12 goals in all competitions for Killie, it is no surprise to see teams chasing Brophy.
His top form has even earned him a first call-up to the national squad. New Scotland manager Steve Clarke knows Brophy well from Kilmarnock and has shown faith in the young striker.
But like Clarke, Brophy could be heading away from Rugby Park this summer. The 23-year-old has options on the table if all clubs firm up their interest with concrete bids.
It looks like Rangers will be the first team to test Kilmarnock’s resolve with an offer. Steven Gerrard sees Brophy as a replacement for Alfredo Morelos, who could be sold this summer.
With age on his side, Brophy could develop into a fine player in the Scottish Premiership or the English Championship. This is a transfer saga to watch out for.
