Rangers have been linked with a summer swoop for Stoke City and Scotland striker Jacob Brown, according to a report, as Gio van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson plot an end-of-season rebuild.
Brown, who is out of contract with the Potters next summer, has impressed for Michael O’Neill’s side this season as he hit 12 goals and contributed 4 assists so far.
According to Football League World, Rangers join West Ham, Brentford and Burnley in having an interest in Brown as his performances for Stoke continue to grab attention.
The report goes on to claim Stoke are keen to extend the Scotland international’s contract but accept they could find it tough to keep him where he is in the face of the interest from clubs like Rangers.
Rangers face massive summer in transfer market
The Light Blues face a hefty turnover of players this summer as Gio van Bronckhorst looks to make his mark on the squad in his first summer transfer window.
Brown would be an interesting addition and if Rangers can get a deal done cheaply then there are far worse options out there.
The possibility of competition from Premier League sides is likely to drive the price up though so the Gers may have to look elsewhere to strengthen the squad.
The Light Blues have a number of attacking options already at the club but have found themselves a bit light in quality in depth.
Brown would definitely add to what GvB has at his disposal – although there’s likely to be many, many more names linked to the Gers before any additions actually arrive.
