Rangers transfer move for Rossiter could spark Barcelona action

Rangers are interested in Liverpool's Jordan Rossiter, who was recently linked to Barcelona.

Rangers are in pole position to sign talented Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter, The Mail report.

Tottenham and Manchester City are also interested the report claims, with Rossiter stalling over a new deal after getting frustrated with a lack of chances under Jurgen Klopp.

The 18-year-old was handed a starting role under Brendan Rodgers, which has made Klopp's decisions tougher to take.

This latest report, citing Rangers having ex-Liverpool head of recruitment Frank McParland being a key factor in their interest stepping up, could spark renewed interest from European giants Barcelona.

Barcelona were reported to have scouted Rossiter recently, with The Sun reporting just last month they have been watching him, along with another Reds youngster Cameron Brannagan.

The chance to join Barcelona is surely not one Rossiter could turn down if the opportunity presented itself, despite the huge attraction Rangers could offer.

The midfielder could learn from the likes of Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic, to add to a football education which has already seen him train alongside Steven Gerrard, and if he moves to the Catalan giants then further opportunities will present themselves even if the move does not work out.
