Rangers face battle to sign teenage prodigy amid Premier League interest

Rangers look set to face a battle to secure the signature of Millwall’s teenage sensation Zak Lovelace as the 15-year-old is being chased by several Premier League teams.

With established clubs such as Leicester City and Brighton interested in the forward {ScottishDailyExpress], the Ibrox side could find themselves up against it to persuade the youngster to swap London for Glasgow.

Millwall had to get school approval in order to give Lovelace his first-team debut in December, becoming the club’s second youngest ever player when he replaced Tom Bradshaw in injury time against Coventry.


Full credit goes to manager Gary Rowett, who could have easily brought on a senior player but decided to give the young forward his debut.

Zak Lovelace is a target for Rangers

The player has yet to sign a professional contract at the Den, and with a growing list of suitors circling around the young prodigy, this is something that Millwall will be aiming to do as soon as possible.

Rangers have been linked with the Englishman according to the Daily Record and the club has been to watch him this season.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst did state in his first press conference as manager of the side that players will get a chance regardless of age, giving hope to the youth talent that is flourishing in the academy.

If the Ibrox side did secure the signature of Lovelace – who doesn’t turn 16 until this weekend – then he would join a talented bunch of forwards such as Tony Weston and Juan Alegria as they aim towards first-team honours.
