Jonson Clarke-Harris would “100 per cent” reject Sheffield United in favour of a move to Rangers this summer.
That is the view of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the race to sign the in-form 26-year-old from Peterborough United.
Clarke-Harris has been in electric form this season, with 30 goals to his name in 45 appearances – no player in League One has scored more.
Football Insider on Wednesday that Sheffield United are eyeing up a move for the centre-forward, as they look to beat Rangers to his signature.
Steven Gerrard’s side are looking at potential striker signings ahead of the summer transfer window with Alfredo Morelos’ long-term future at Ibrox uncertain.
When asked for his assessment of Clarke-Harris’ future after the latest development, Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs:
“100 per cent Rangers are a more attractive proposition than Sheffield United. There is no doubt about that in my mind.
“If Jonson Clarke-Harris moved to Rangers he would have the opportunity to play Champions League football next season. Let’s not forget they are one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
“That is a big draw and so is playing for Steven Gerrard. That is one of the main reasons why they appointed Gerrard, players want to play for him.
“I have no doubt that he would choose Rangers over Sheffield United in the Championship if both made an offer for him.”
