Rangers defender Danny Wilson may exit Ibrox this month after attracting attention from the MLS, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that Wilson, 26, is out of contract at the end of the season but could leave the Light Blues earlier than anticipated with a potential lucrative deal on the table for him to move across the Atlantic.

It is understood that there is “strong” interest in the five-times Scotland international, who has been in top form since emerging as a key first-team player under Graeme Murty.

After Pedro Caixinha was sacked in October, Murty has boosted the 26-year-old up the pecking order so he has been playing regularly ahead of summer signings Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso.

Murty is believed to be keen on keeping hold of Wilson as it would be a massive blow to lose the centre-back at this stage of the season.

He has made 15 appearances across all competitions this term, scoring three goals in the process.

Football Insider verdict

Wilson has looked like a new signing himself since Caixinha was sacked and Murty took charge, so it would be a massive shame for Rangers to lose him. Murty’s has plenty of options at centre-back and may want to offload one or two, but it’s unlikely that losing Wilson would be up for consideration. Cardoso, Alves and even David Bates are perhaps further down the pecking order behind the ex-Hearts and Liverpool defender, with him expected to start playing alongside Russell Martin in the back four. But with a “lucrative” offer likely from the USA, that means that Murty’s plans could be thrown into disarray.
