Rangers are looking to beat Arsenal to the signing of Josh Windass.

Rangers are looking to beat Arsenal to the signing of Josh Windass, the Sun report.

Windass plays for English side Accrington Stanley, and is making an impact for the side at just 21-years-old.

The Scottish club's interest was also reported by the Hull Daily Mail over the weekend.

Josh Windass is the son of former player Dean Windass, who played for Bradford City, Middlesbrough, and Aberdeen among others.

He is an attacking midfielder, who netted the winner for his League Two side at the weekend against Cambridge.

Early this season he has scored eight goals in 17 league games, and is attracting particular interest because his contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

Arsenal were claimed by The Mirror earlier this month to be leading the chase, with the paper also linking Brighton, Fulham, Hull and Portsmouth to the youngster.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has been shrewd so far at raiding the English lower divisions for talent, and the chance of regular football could prove more tempting for Windass than sitting on Arsenal's bench.
