Report: Rangers eye move for Preston star Daniel Johnson as Steven Gerrard looks for additions

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is keen on bringing Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson to Ibrox, according to a report from The Daily Record.

The Gers are looking to strengthen their ranks ahead of looking to prevent Celtic win ten in a row in Scotland. Manager Gerrard has made a point all summer of improving his squad and has seemingly identified Johnson as a key target.

It is claimed that Rangers have submitted a bid in the region of £2m for the Preston star. The Jamaican has built a reputation over the years of being one of the Championship’s most consistent performers.

He’s made 184 appearances in the English second-tier, contributing 33 goals along the way, per Transfermarkt.

However, Preston are thought to be keen on keeping hold of Johnson. The 27-year-old is an inspirational figure in the midfield for the Lancashire outfit, having made 33 appearances last season and 35 the season prior.

The Jamaican is settled in Preston but the chance of moving to a club the size of Rangers and the opportunity of working under someone like Gerrard could be a chance Johnson can’t turn down.

However, £2m seems to be a very small bid for a player of such accomplished stature in the Championship.

From a Rangers perspective, however, Johnson would be a smart fit. Experienced, good with the ball and a cool head in the middle, the former Aston Villa trainee could prove a smart addition.
