Rangers fans appear to be delighted with the recent speculation surrounding a potential contract offer to Stoke City’s Tyrese Campbell as reported on Football Insider.

The England under-20 international has been linked with a host of clubs in both the Premier League and on the continent whilst Old Firm rivals, Celtic are also credited with an interest.

Potters gaffer, Michael O’Neill, has already been trying to persuade the youngster to avoid a move to Scotland – absolutely nothing to do with the club receiving considerably less compensation of course – in a similar way in which Lee Bowyer did with Joe Aribo last summer.

if the rumours of a £400k transfer fee are correct, the Light Blues would be snapping up a talented youngster with decent first-team experience given that he has just turned 20-years-old, as Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe are unlikely to be around forever, it could be great bit of business by Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard.

Is Tyrese Campbell the sort of striker Rangers should be looking to sign?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Rangers fans took to Twitter in response to the transfer speculation with the vast majority of them backing the move for Campbell.

Even if the move doesn’t work out for Rangers and Campbell, at £400k it represents a gamble well worth taking, Celtic benefitted from a similar deal when they signed Moussa Dembele from Fulham which saw them make over £19m profit plus a 10% sell on clause which looks like bringing in a further £10m if recent reports are to be believed, figures that the Gers have been unable to match in recent years.
