Rangers have once again been mentioned alongside Premier League midfielder John Lundstram as his contract gets set to expire at Sheffield United.

The Gers have been routinely linked with a move for Lundstram, 27, over the course of the season and were first mentioned alongside the player in the Athletic last year.

It’s been a while since Steven Gerrard’s side were mentioned alongside Lundstram but after a teammate appeared to confirm his Bramall Lane exit, Yorkshire Live done just that.

Blades star Jack O’Connell took to Instagram to wish Lundstram all the best in comments which allude to the player’s imminent exit from the relegated Premier League club.

Yorkshire Live would then claim “Rangers have been strongly linked with a free transfer as Lundstram’s contract in S2 is set to expire this summer”.

Rangers have used the pre-contract market to strong effect throughout Steven Gerrard’s tenure at the club and this kind of deal appears to match up with the club’s transfer strategy.

However, since heavy links to Lundstram earlier in the season reported interest appears to have dried up with this report the first in a few months which have named Rangers alongside the player.

Should Rangers be interested in the ex-Everton youth star then they will likely face some Premier League competition with West Ham also linked to the player [The Sun [06/09/20, p.61]].

Rangers have two pre-contract signings already set to come in this summer with one of them already earning a song from the Ibrox club’s support.
