Burnley striker Matej Vydra is set to sign for Rangers before the transfer window slams shut, according to the Daily Record.
The 27-year-old has made nine appearances for the Clarets this season but has been used largely as a substitute.
Vydra will be keen to play regular first-team football again, having never really been in favour during his time at Turf Moor.
The man with 26 caps for his country signed for the Clarets in 2018 from Derby County.
He has never really been given a proper run in the side and as a result, Burnley haven’t seen the Vydra that was scintillating at Watford and Derby.
Rangers are on the lookout for more firepower following the injury which Jermain Defoe suffered on Wednesday night.
Alfredo Morelos is very much the first-choice centre forward at Ibrox and Vydra will provide some competition.
The Czech-born performer can also play as a number 10 and that will give Steven Gerrard some options.
Vydra earns £35,000-a-week at Turf Moor and Rangers are now hoping to strike a deal with the player before the deadline at midnight.
The Daily Star claims that Vydra will sign for the Gers on loan before making the move permanent in the summer.
TBR View – Vydra has the proven quality to see Rangers to success
Having shown some breathtaking for during his time playing for both Watford and Derby, Vydra looks an attractive signing.
The 27-year-old will be desperate to get back to playing football and he will have a point to prove.
The challenge for Gerrard, albeit a small one, will be to ensure that Vydra doesn’t show too many signs of rustiness.
His spell on the fringes at Burnley will probably show for the first few games but once he settles down, Rangers fans will have themselves a very dangerous player.
