Rangers transfers: Five Tottenham youngsters Warburton should target for Ibrox loans

Rangers are reportedly looking to land Tottenham youngsters on loan.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that he is ready to speak to Tottenham Hotspur over potential loan deals for some of their young players.

Warburton has arrived at Ibrox to a thin squad, and needs to bring in bodies ahead of the new season - with a relationship with Spurs potentially in the pipeline.

Tottenham may be willing to trust Warburton having seen Alex Pritchard thrive under the new Rangers manager at Brentford last season, meaning the Gers could get their pick of Tottenham's crop of prospects.

With that in mind, here are five Tottenham youngsters who could be realistic loan targets for Rangers as Warburton looks to add to his squad...

Ryan Fredericks

Having released Sebastien Faure and Richard Foster this summer, Rangers are in desperate need of a right back, which Fredericks could help solve. The 22-year-old seemingly has little future at Tottenham, and a loan deal could be ideal for him to show what he can do, with regular first team football likely at Rangers.

Harry Winks

Young legs are needed in central midfield, and 19-year-old Winks needs experience having come up through the ranks at White Hart Lane. Alongside an experienced veteran like trialist John Eustace, Winks could learn a lot in Scotland, and follow the same trajectory as fellow midfielder Pritchard in featuring under Warburton.

Kenneth McEvoy

Most well known for looking an awful lot like Gareth Bale, McEvoy had loan spells with Peterborough United and Colchester United last season, but needs to continue his development with regular football. With Rangers having few options out wide, Irish winger McEvoy, 20, could be an option.

Emmanuel Sonupe

If not McEvoy, then Warburton could instead look towards Sonupe. The 19-year-old spent time on loan in Scotland with St. Mirren last season, and could provide Rangers with pace down the flanks - something Warburton won't have much of with his current squad.

Shaq Coulthirst

Rangers must sign a striker having released both Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller, and Coulthirst should be on the radar. With six goals in 36 games during loan spells with Southend United and York City last season, Coulthirst showed he has the ability to score goals if given the opportunity. It would be little surprise if Warburton did indeed discuss Coulthirt's name whilst speaking to Spurs, considering their need for a striker.
