Report: Rangers may have potential boost on long-term Ibrox target, but clubs queue for 27-year-old

Rangers may have reportedly received a potential boost on their long-term target Jonson Clarke-Harris, as he would be keen on a move to Ibrox this summer from current club Peterborough.

According to the Daily Record, Steven Gerrard’s side have been admirers of him for a while and scouted him extensively last season.

The 27-year-old is interested in joining Scottish champions Rangers.

However, the report explains that there is a queue of clubs that are eyeing the centre-forward. Bournemouth, Sheffield United, West Brom, along with Russia club CSKA Moscow are some of the teams watching him.

Clarke-Harris fired Peterborough to promotion last season from League One. He scored a staggering 33 goals in 48 games across all competition last season for them.

Do Rangers need Clarke-Harris?

Alfredo Morelos, who’s future at Ibrox is being heavily speculated about, will leave a big gap in the Rangers squad if he leaves this summer.

The Scottish giants clearly need a new centre-forward if the Colombian goes.

However, they do still have have Kemar Roofe, Jermain Defoe and Cedric Itten as striker options, too. 

Rangers should only consider ramping up interest if Morelos waves goodbye.
