Rangers link interesting Celtic but wants Premier League move - report

Confusion reigns over reported Rangers interest in QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel amidst a spate of reports concerning the in-demand wide man interesting other clubs.

Crystal Palace are said to be amongst the frontrunners for Samuel with the Premier League club mulling over whether or not to meet his £5m asking price.

The 22-year-old is also said to be eager to hook up with ex-teammate Ebere Eze at Selhurst Park after the player moved to the Premier League club last month in a £20m deal.

As a result, Osayi-Samuel is said to be stalling over a new deal at Loftus Road [Sky Sports] with his heart set on a move to the Eagles.

But that hasn’t stopped Football Insider linking the player to Ibrox – who Rangers could pick up on a pre-contract in January – with that report being carried across the mainstream press.

However, reports this morning have also claimed that Celtic have entered the race for the player [Scottish Sun] with one eye on a pre-contract move.

The report claims that through scouting connection Gary Penrice the Parkhead club hope to broker a deal which could include signing Osayi-Samuel and sending him back on loan to QPR for the year.

Whatever the case, the winger certainly appears a man in demand but there is more than a hint of confusion concerning his future and reported interest from Rangers and Celtic.

Should there be legitimacy to Rangers’ interest in the winger, perhaps they could use an international wide man of their own as a makeweight?
