Reportedly on Rangers’ radar, Bolton Wanderers striker Josh Magennis is trying to negotiate the termination of his contract at current club Bolton Wanderers.
That is according to the Bolton News. The report claims that Magennis, along with midfielder Erhan Oztumer, handed in his notice at the crisis club several weeks ago. The Northern Ireland international has just one year left on his contract with Bolton.
The club’s administrators reported refused their request as they want a transfer fee. Magennis has now, reportedly, gone to the PFA to help on the issue.
Rangers were linked with a move for Magennis earlier this month. As reported by the Belfast Telegraph, the Ibrox side have been in talks with the Bolton striker’s representatives this summer.
Rangers are believed to be open to the signing of a third striker to back up Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe. Magennis’ countryman Kyle Lafferty is expected to leave Ibrox this summer.
Rangers will undoubtedly want to get Magennis on the cheapest deal possible so will hope the former Aberdeen man can finalise an exit from Bolton this summer.
If he does, Steven Gerrard could be adding another strong option to his frontline for the upcoming Scottish Premiership campaign.
