Report: Rangers could step up interest in 27-year-old midfield 'menace' next month, he'll be a free agent
Glasgow Rangers could potentially step up interest in John Lundstram next month, according to The Star.
The Ibrox club has been linked with the Sheffield United midfielder for a number of months.
According to a Glasgow Times October report, the Gers were on “high alert” after Lundstram turned down a new Blades contract offer.
The Mirror, meanwhile, speculated around the same time that Rangers were eyeing Lundstram in January on a cut-price deal.
Obviously the 27-year-old stayed put at Bramall Lane, but his contract now expires at the end of the month.
According to the Sheffield-based outlet, interest in Lundstram is expected to ramp up when his United contract expires on June 30.
As well as Rangers, English sides Burnley and Crystal Palace are also monitoring the former Everton man.

Lundstram is a 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 is eager to seek pastures new, and Rangers would be a great shout for him.
Steven Davis in the twilight of his professional playing career, while Glen Kamara could well be in demand from suitors.
Therefore, the Gers should certainly be keeping an eye out for new players in the middle of the park.
