Rangers chances of landing Emerson Hyndman could be impacted by Bournemouth loanee's future.

Jack Wilshere's surprise loan move to Bournemouth earlier this season was a big coup for the Cherries, but it was not good news for everybody.

Another summer signing, Emerson Hyndman, saw his chances of playing time decrease thanks to Wilshere's arrival, and he was instead sent on loan to Rangers in January.

Hyndman has quickly impressed at Ibrox, scoring again at the weekend in Pedro Caixinha's first game as manager.

The 20-year-old is making a big impact in Scotland, and Rangers would dearly love to sign him either on loan for another season, or permanently.

For this to happen, Bournemouth would surely have to secure the services of Wilshere themselves for at least another 12 months.

Wilshere is playing regularly for the first time in years, after an injury hit few seasons for Arsenal, where competition for places made it tough for him to find any sort of consistency.

SkyBet price Bournemouth at 8/1 to sign Wilshere permanently this summer, and would be keen to bring back the England international.

It is uncertain if there is a spot for Wilshere at Arsenal, especially with the lack of clarity over Arsene Wenger's future. He could decide to cut his losses and move forward by signing with the Cherries.

This would be a big boost for Rangers' hopes of bringing back Hyndman next season, and the Gers should be paying very close attention to Wilshere's situation - even if it is one which could drag on throughout the summer.
