Report: Rangers £1m-rated striker target set for talks
Rangers transfer target Jason Cummings is holding back on a move to Ibrox as he awaits to hold talks regarding his future with new Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka, according to a report.
The Sun claims that the forward, who only joined Forest six-months ago from SPL side Hibernian, had been destined to head back north of the border after finding himself sidelined under Mark Warburton.
But, after the Championship club announced they were bringing Aitor Karanka back to the UK to replace the now departed Warburton, it seems the Scot is now looking for assurances regarding his place in the team.
Rangers were thought to be plotting a January swoop for the attacker and believed that a fee of £1million would prise their target away.
Football Insider verdict:
This transfer won’t happen this window. Forest may be willing to listen to offers for their goal-shy hitman who has only scored four goals all season but the likelihood that anything will materialise is slim. The player is contracted to the Championship side until 2020 and are in need of goalscorers if they are going to turn around their current league form – the Reds are without a win in the last five and have lost three of those. Cummings sounds determined to make his spell with Forest successful and with Karanka in charge, he has the man to guide him.
