The Daily Record report that Rangers are considering a move for Hearts defender, John Souttar.
It’s suggested that the 22-year-old is high on Mark Allen’s list of priorities for the summer window.
Souttar is tied to Tynecastle until summer 2022, therefore, it’ll take a significant fee to prise him away.
The 6ft 2′ centre-back is already experienced at club level and is a full Scotland international.
According to the report, the Gers will scout him during today’s Scottish Cup semi-final.
It certainly makes sense for Rangers to be in the hunt for a centre-back.
They will be light in that area come the summer when Gareth McAuley’s contract expires and Joe Worrall’s heads back to parent club Nottingham Forest.
Additionally, it continues a clear policy to try to pick up the best-of-the-rest in the SPL.
Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones fall into that category, while Souttar is another established performer in the league.
Would he be worth a substantial fee, though?
Here’s what a selection of Bears think:

I’d take John Souttar to be perfectly honest.
