Rangers have been named as one of six clubs who are tailing Aris winger Luis Palma – with unnamed sides in the MLS also watching the Honduran international.

According to Honduran outlet Diez, Rangers are genuinely interested in the 23-year-old but face stiff competition from around Europe, including in the Premier League.

Belgian Pro League sides Gent and Anderlecht are mentioned, as are Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kiev, while Championship-bound Leeds United and Premier League newboys Burnley are linked down south.

On top of this, the report cites interest coming from the USA but it does not directly name any of the clubs said to be monitoring Luis Palma in the MLS.

The report comes amid extensive links between Rangers and Palma heading into the summer transfer window.

Rangers are expected to invest in the squad in the coming window, with the left wing a genuine area of need given the imminent departure of seemingly Fenerbahce-bound Ryan Kent.

Luis Palma has been the most prominent link in the position heading into the window and the apparent Rangers interest in the Aris winger hasn’t been without justification.

Netting 13 goals this season, the Aris star was a big player for the Greek Super League side but, to all intents and purposes, look set to move on.

At 23, there is plenty of room for the kid to grow into and Rangers fans will note reports that claim Aris want up to €5m (£4.4m) to complete a deal.

While, as things stand, the reports continue around potential Rangers interest, there hasn’t been anything concrete claiming a Palma bid has been launched and is some way down the line.

Now, it appears that Rangers face major competition to sign the winger, with at least six clubs tailing Palma and potentially more to follow from the states.
