Report: Rangers targeting deal for Barnet's teenage striker Matt Stevens

Barnet Underhill

Rangers are reportedly moving for Barnet striker Matt Stevens.

According to Get West London, Rangers are plotting a swoop to sign Barnet's teenage striker Matt Stevens, as their transfer activity continues.

The Gers swooped to land Harry Forrester and Maciej Gostomski early into the transfer window, with both players penning six-month contract at Ibrox.

Manager Mark Warburton then moved to sign Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass on pre-contract agreements, with both 21-year-old's set to join the club at the end of the season.

However, Warburton may yet be looking for more young English talent, with Get West London stating that Rangers want to sign Barnet striker Matt Stevens.

The 17-year-old started his career with Farnborough before moving on to Reading, where he smashed 32 goals in the 2013-14 season for Reading's Under-16 side.

A move to Barnet followed in the summer of 2014, and having thrived with the Bees' youth setup, he is now on the fringes of the club's first team.

Warburton has an eye for a young talent, and after swooping for Crooks and Windass, Get West London believe a move for Stevens could be on the cards for Rangers this month.

The Daily Mail reported last summer that Swansea had failed in a £250,000 bid for Stevens, so Rangers may have to pay up if they are to lure the striker to Ibrox during the January transfer window.
