Rangers have tabled a Tyrese Campbell offer as they look to beat Premier League big guns and Celtic to his signature, Football Insider has learned.
The Stoke City striker, 20, has emerged as a top target for leading clubs north and south of the border in the current window as he is out of contract at the end of the season.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Rangers have offered a long-term contract to Campbell as they explore various ways to entice him.
Steven Gerrard’s side would be keen on signing the England Under-20 forward either this month or in the summer.
One advantage they and bitter rivals Celtic have over English clubs is they are able to use cross-border rules to sign him for a £300,000 fee in the summer.
By contrast, Campbell’s English suitors would need to to pay would would likely be a multi-million compensation fee.
Football Insider revealed last week that Wolves, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace have joined the hunt to sign the versatile forward after Celtic and Rangers had already made clear their interest in signing him.
He has been targeted by Rangers as he can spearhead the attack or play out wide, with Stoke using him on the right flank in recent matches.
Campbell has been starting regularly for the Potters of late after being on the fringes of their team for much of the opening half of the campaign.
He won back his place in the starting XI over the festive period and his goals propelled the Potters to wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield.
