Rangers linked with return for striker they reportedly missed out on in 2020

Rangers have been linked with a surprise move for Scotland international striker Lyndon Dykes alongside a host of Premier League clubs.

TEAMtalk have claimed that Burnley, Crystal Palace, Norwich City and Newcastle United have all expressed interest in the forward.

Currently playing under Mark Warburton at Queens Park Rangers, the report claims that several clubs are set to test the Rs’ resolve with a bid for the 26-year-old this month.

Under contract for a further two seasons at Queens Park Rangers, the links between Lyndon Dykes and the Gers are interesting given historic Ibrox links.

Prior to the Scotland star’s move to Loftus Road in 2020, Dykes had been extensively linked with a move to Rangers whilst the club was being managed by Steven Gerrard [Scottish Sun].

But Rangers appeared to opt against a move for the ex-Livingston striker, who signed a reported £2m deal at Queen’s Park Rangers only 18 months ago [Scottish Sun].

Queens Park Rangers’ Lyndon Dykes not the only striker being linked to Gers

Lyndon Dykes isn’t the only striker being linked to Rangers this window either as the Gers seemingly muse over the prospect of bolstering their forward line.

Colombian striker Frank Castaneda – previously of controversial Champions League side Sheriff Tiraspol – is the latest forward to be linked with a move to the Gers.

Sochi have also been linked to Castaneda, which adds another dimension to reported Rangers links to countryman and fellow forward Mateo Cassierra at the Russian club.

Lyndon Dykes might not be the most exotic name for Rangers fans and the striker has scored 19 goals in 64 games for the English Championship side.

However, most of Rangers’ transfer business thus far has been concentrated in defence with the Ibrox club linked to a host of centre-back reinforcements.

Between John Souttar and Danilho Doekhi, Rangers have their eye set on a pair of new defenders as one defensive Ibrox star looks set to leave the club this month.
