The transfer window closes this week but Michael Beale could still take advantage of the free agent market if he thinks there are gaps in his Rangers squad to fill.

Players as far-fetched as Eden Hazard and Jesse Lingard have had their names dropped into speculation, however, there are still players with previous connections available too.

Michael Beale has had a successful window but a quick look on Transfermarkt’s free agent list shows a few familiar names to Rangers fans.

Free agent shopping list Michael Beale could consider for Rangers

The Gers boss has spoken about the potential addition of a centre-half and there are two names who have been reported as previous targets.

Axel Tuanzebe has left Manchester United and the 25-year old is currently training with Luton Town in the hope of sealing a Premier League deal.

The other notable name is Steven Caulker, linked in 2018, the former Tottenham Hotspur defender who is still only 31 has been without a club since leaving Wigan on a short-term deal.

He had been in Turkey for the last four years with Fenerbahce one of his clubs.

In January, Michael Beale was heavily linked with a move for Josh Onomah but only Nicolas Raskin and Todd Cantwell arrived at Rangers despite Fulham letting the Spurs academy graduate leave for free.

Rangers are well stocked for midfielders though and it would be a surprise to see a late move now.

One name who might have been exciting a few years ago when rumours first surfaced is Andros Townsend, unfortunately though, it looks as though injuries have caught up with the England international.

With a fully fit roster, the last thing we want is to start loading the treatment room again.

Michael Beale, if he is to add to the Rangers squad, will probably be looking at the loan or loan to buy market now, there is a reason why, with just a few days left to go, that certain players remain on the shelf.

Even Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander look good on paper.
