Report: Rangers express desire to bring Tottenham teenager Nathan Oduwa to Ibrox

Rangers are reportedly looking to sign Tottenham youngster Nathan Oduwa on loan.

According to Sky Sports, Rangers have asked Tottenham whether they can take teenage winger Nathan Oduwa on loan this summer.

Manager Mark Warburton has already brought seven players to Rangers this summer, but having taken on a huge rebuilding job at Ibrox, more new faces are needed.

The former Brentford boss struck up a strong relationship with Tottenham last season by helping develop Spurs playmaker Alex Pritchard during a loan spell with the Bees, and it seems that Warburton is looking to use his connections at White Hart Lane to try and land another youngster.

Sky Sports report that Rangers have expressed a desire to take Tottenham forward Nathan Oduwa on loan for a portion of this season, but face competition from League One side Coventry City.

Oduwa, 19, has come up through the ranks at Spurs and is seen as a future first team player under Mauricio Pochettino, who is keen to send the winger out on loan in order to give the teenager some first team experience.

With pace and dribbling ability, Oduwa could bring a spark to the flanks for Rangers, and Warburton's work with Pritchard last season could convince Spurs to send their youngster to Ibrox - despite Rangers currently being in the Scottish Championship.

Rangers lacked pace in wide areas last season, and whilst Andy Halliday and David Templeton have made strong starts under Warburton, Oduwa may bring something different to the Rangers side, if they can secure the loan deal this summer.
