Rangers in hunt for in-demand winger at SPL rivals, likely to cost six-figure sum - report

Rangers are in the hunt to sign in-demand winger Jordan Jones from Scottish Premiership rivals Kilmarnock, according to a report.

The Daily Mail reports in its live transfer blog (11:45am, 9 June) that the Gers have been eyeing the developments of the 23-year-old, who impressed in the top flight in Scotland in the 2017/18 season.

It is understood that English clubs Sunderland, Norwich City and Nottingham Forest are also interested in the attacker and that he is currently refusing to extend his contract with Kilmarnock, which has just one year remaining on.

The report details that Jones could be available for around £600,000 this summer amid widespread interest in him.

Football Insider verdict:

Jones enjoyed a solid season with Kilmarnock overall and it’s no surprise he is attracting a fair amount of interest this summer. It seems like an exit is on the cards amid a contract stand-off and the left-winger would be an interesting addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad at Ibrox. He made 41 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring four goals and supplying 10 assists in return. His experience in the Scottish division does give him an edge, but it’s hard to imagine him breaking into the Gers starting XI in the foreseeable future. Rangers do already have plenty of solid wide options going into the new campaign and Gerrard may need to focus on strengthening other areas of the pitch. Jones’ price tag of £600,000 could be a pure snip for someone like Sunderland from England, who are preparing for life in League One next season after their relegation.
