Rangers linked with loan raid on Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa

Rangers have been linked with a loan raid on Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa as the club reportedly join the hunt for striker Cameron Archer.

The 20-year-old forward scored seven goals whilst on loan at Preston North End last season and all the signs suggest he’ll be heading out on a short term deal again.

An England U21 international, Rangers have been linked by TalkSPORT correspondent Alex Crook, who also mentions relegated Watford and Championship rivals Middlesbrough as potential suitors.

Rangers will need to reinforce the striking position ahead of the new campaign, especially after being caught short at the end of the last campaign.

Rangers were left without a forward for the Europa League Final as Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe carried injuries heading into the match.

Cedric Itten – who has been sold to Young Boys – was also not registered for the Europa League squad with Joe Aribo starting and scoring in the match.

Would Cameron Archer move underwhelm Rangers fans?

Cameron Archer would provide reinforcement in the position but only singing the young Villa striker would be underwhelming given the club’s issues in the position.

The likes Ross Stewart and Mateo Cassierra have also been linked and a short-term deal for Cameron Archer would underwhelm if this was the only striker move the club made.

Speaking of Aston Villa, it’s interesting to see one of the Premier League club’s players being linked to Rangers after extensive links in the opposite direction.

The likes of Glen Kamara, Ryan Kent and most prominently Calvin Bassey have all been linked with a move to Birmingham ever since Steven Gerrard took charge last season.

Rangers might also reverse roles with the Villains if any move came to fruition with Aston Villa said to be closing in on a deal for a potent young Ibrox forward.
