Arsenal join Rangers, Celtic and Tottenham in striker chase - report

Rangers are one of three clubs tailing Wigan Athletic forward Kyle Joseph after Arsenal and Celtic were both linked to the Scotland youth international.

That’s according to the Mirror, who believe there are also clubs in Europe with an eye on the 19-year-old forward who has five goals in 14 League One games this season.

It’s not the first time Rangers have been linked to Joseph, whose contract expires at the end of the season meaning he’ll be available on a cut-price deal for the Gers.


The Ibrox side would pay a nominal fee for Joseph due to cross-border compensation rules, something the club have taken advantage of several times under Steven Gerrard’s tenure.

Rangers were first mentioned alongside the forward back in early January with Tottenham Hotspur one of the names being linked to the player [The Sun on Sunday (10/1; page 58)].

Since then a host of names have been linked to the player, including our rivals and Premier League Sheffield United [Mirror].

But the most interesting movement surrounding the player came at the end of the January transfer window with one of Wigan’s rivals reportedly trying to snare the forward.

Championship Barnsley play in the division above the Latics are reportedly made a £500k move for Joseph in the last window, sparking a storm on Twitter between both fans.

But that move didn’t materialise for whatever reason and the player’s future remains up in the air with fans keeping a close eye on this one as the season enters its final furlong.

Whilst there appears to be something a little more substantial in this reported interest, this week one player has refuted the claim that the Gers were ever interested in him at all.
