Rangers are expected to announce the signing of Dujon Sterling this week after meeting with boss Michael Beale.

That is according to a report from Football Scotland, who claim that Sterling will become Rangers’ latest signing.

It’s stated that a deal has been agreed and Sterling was shown around Auchenhowie earlier in May.

Sterling has now met with Beale in London and confirmation of his arrival as a new Rangers player is imminent.

Beale was spotted in London on Sunday and may have spoken to Sterling during that trip.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at Chelsea this summer and is now heading for Glasgow on a free transfer.

The report notes that Stoke City did want to keep Sterling permanently after taking him on loan this season.

However, the lure of playing in Europe and challenging for trophies at Rangers has tempted Sterling into signing for Beale.

Rangers announced the signing of Kieran Dowell last week and it looks like Sterling is following him from England to Scotland.

Michael Beale wants another Chelsea youth product to join Dujon Sterling

The report goes on to state that Beale wants to sign another Chelsea youth product in Jonathan Panzo.

Nottingham Forest defender Panzo was first linked to Rangers by the Daily Record back in March.

Panzo allegedly remains on Beale’s wish list as Rangers chase another left-sided defender.

Panzo has spent this season on loan at Coventry City and missed out on promotion to the Premier League in the play-off final.

Now heading back to a Forest side that achieved Premier League survival, Panzo may well be available on a permanent basis.

Panzo – much like Sterling – came up in the Chelsea ranks and is therefore familiar to former Blues youth coach Beale.

The same goes for Troyes striker Ike Ugbo, who is also understood to be a Rangers target this summer.

Beale is calling on his Chelsea history to take Rangers forward and we could see Sterling, Panzo and Ugbo all arrive this summer.
