Rangers are rivalling Old Firm rivals Celtic and Premier League club West Brom for the signature of Stoke winger Tom Ince, according to a new report.

TEAMtalk are claiming that Rangers are amongst three teams looking at the left-winger, who cost Stoke £10m when he joined from Huddersfield in 2018.

The report claims that West Brom are leading the pack but that Rangers have “expressed an interest” in the player with the Baggies fancying their chances in the three-horse race.

The son of former Manchester United legend and Liverpool star Paul, Ince is contracted to Stoke until 2022.

These links also come after Rangers boss Steven Gerrard suggested that the club’s transfer plans could depend on qualification for the Europa League.

“I’ve made it pretty clear what I feel we need,” said Gerrard [Rangers].

“But I also respect the club’s position and the current climate and the situation that we’re in.

“I do think that depending on whether we qualify or not would depend on what we try and do in the final days.

“But I think that’s a question for people that are above me at the club, I can’t really answer that question right now.

“I’ve made it pretty clear what I feel we need to keep moving forward, to make sure that we don’t stand still.”

Rangers face off against Turkish giants Galatasaray in a one-off behind-closed-doors Europa League play-off which promises to be an electric affair even in an empty Ibrox.

Links to Ince also come after the re-emergence of Jordan Jones, who will surely be hoping to fill that winger void which was seemingly identified through other targets earlier in the window.
