Report: Rangers hold talks for Bournemouth duo Jack Simpson and Nnamdi Ofoborh

Rangers have reportedly started talks with Championship side Bournemouth about trying to sign their two players Jack Simpson and Nnamdi Ofoborh.

Bournemouth, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, are a team sat sixth in the English second-tier and they have a lot of quality in their squad.

According to the Glasgow Evening Times, Steven Gerrard’s Rangers have entered discussions about the two players.


It is explained that the Gers are looking to rival Cardiff City for 24-year-old defender Simpson.

The report adds that the Scottish giants are also looking to beat off competition from Charlton Athletic for 21-year-old midfielder Ofoborh.

TBR’s View:

Simpson and Ofoborh are two players that have only played a combined total of 65 senior games, but the quality of Rangers’ scouting in recent years is one reason fans should be optimistic about them as potential targets.

Centre-back Simpson played a bit-part role during the previous season when Bournemouth were relegated from the top-flight, but he’s been more heavily involved this season.

Meanwhile, young central midfielder Ofoborh has only made his first-team breakthrough this campaign.

With Rangers reportedly in discussions for the pair, it looks like they want to reinforce their squad even further to help them get over the line in the title race.
