Report: Rangers fear they could lose Arsenal target Jack Wylie

Rangers fear that they could now lose teenager Jack Wylie, with the Daily Star reporting that Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the race to sign the defender.

The Gers have had to deal with a few of their younger players moving in in the last few years. Perhaps the most high profile instance came when Billy Gilmour left Ibrox to join Chelsea.

The Daily Star reports that Rangers received just £350,000 for Rory Wilson earlier this year when the young forward ended up following Steven Gerrard to Aston Villa.

The Daily Star reports that both Arsenal and Manchester United want Wylie, with the Gunners monitoring him for six months. And Rangers will fear that he could leave should the pair start making offers and get engaged in a bidding war.

It is noted that the Gers are aware that the chance to move to the Premier League may prove to be too tempting for Wylie. But they are desperate to hand him a long-term contract.

Rangers have perhaps boosted their hopes of keeping their younger players with the appointment of Michael Beale this week. Beale is a fantastic coach who will relish the chance to work with the best prospects coming through at Ibrox.

However, it is also an extremely exciting time to head to Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s men are flying high in the Premier League.

Several young players are key parts of Arteta’s squad already. And, just as encouragingly, there is another wave of talented prospects looking to knock on the door in the next few years.

If the chance to join that group presents itself, it is surely going to be extremely difficult to turn down.
