Rangers are interested in signing Rotherham midfielder Will Vaulks, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim that the Scottish giants are weighing up a £400,000 move to sign the 23-year-old.
It is understood that Vaulks is one of few Rotherham players to standout this season, with the club relegated from the Championship as the league’s bottom side.
The report dealt that Wolves are interested in a move for the Rotherham ace, who used to play at Scottish club Falkirk.
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha is believed to shocked after their 5-1 hammering to Old Firm rivals Celtic recently and is planning a substantial overhaul in the summer as a result.
The Gers boss has been given the green light to bring in new players after drawing up potential targets and Vaulks appears to be one of them.
Vaulks has been playing in a struggling Rotherham side that will be playing in League One next season.
The 23-year-old has been an ever-present in the starting XI, though, and has made 41 appearances across all competitions.
He is recognised as a defensive midfielder, but can also slot back into the defence if required.
Football Insider verdict:
Pedro Caixinha is fully justified in wanting a much improved squad next season as the current Rangers crop are a million miles off competing with Scottish champions Celtic. They were never expected to be pushing their rivals for the title this season on their return to the top-flight, but the gulf in class is huge. The Gers could do with a settled midfield if they are to improve and loanee Emerson Hyndman could be a big blow for them. Meanwhile, the likes of Josh Windass, Jon Toral, Jason Holt and Andy Halliday have hardly set the world alight. Rotherham midfielder Vaulks has looked solid in the Championship and could potentially bring some extra quality to the side. However, Caixinha is going to need plenty more signings and needs the backing of the board.
In other Rangers transfer news, the club’s player is set to quit next month despite Caixinha’s wishes.
