Rangers could sign Crystal Palace matchwinner James McArthur in the upcoming transfer window, according to Football Whispers.
The football site claim that the Scotland international, 30, is the second most likely player to move to the Glasgow giants in the main summer window following a blizzard of activity in January.
Glasgow-born McArthur has been a regular for most of the last three-and-a-half years at Palace since joining for £7.9million from Wigan in 2014.
The 32-times Scotland international has made 23 appearances for Roy Hodgson’s side this season, scoring an impressive five goals from his central midfield position.
McArthur has been the matchwinner for the team on a few occasions recently, including in Premier League wins against Southampton and Watford.
Football Whispers, which gathers all transfer rumours across the globe and calculates the likelihood of them happening, rates it 2.3 out of five that McArthur will join Rangers, with five the highest possible ranking and meaning it is a certainty.
He is rated the second most likely player to transfer to Ibrox in the summer, placed either side of January arrivals Greg Docherty and Russell Martin.
In other Rangers transfer news, it can be revealed that a key first teamer has sensationally asked to leave after the board failed to stick to their promise of giving him a new deal during the transfer window.
