Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha gestures during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Moult is said to have attracted interest from Pedro Caixinha's Rangers during the summer transfer window.

Rangers could make a January approach for Motherwell striker Louis Moult, according to The Scottish Sun.

Rangers are among the clubs credited with interest in the Englishman - who has scored four goals in eight outings this season - during the summer transfer window.

But Motherwell's asking price is said to have deterred the Ibrox side from stepping up their pursuit.

Moult has since turned down a new contract at Fir Park however, and according to manager Stephen Robinson, the 25-year-old is not expected to change his mind (BBC Sport).

Should that remain the case, Moult will become a free agent next summer, allowing Rangers and others to approach him about a pre-contract agreement from the New Year.

Pedro Caixinha's side could however be rivalled to the former Stoke City player's signature, with The Scottish Sun also listing English sides Millwall, Brentford and Blackburn Rovers as suitors, along with Hibernian.

Rangers spent around £2.5 million on two new strikers during the summer transfer window (Transfermarkt), although the pair, Alfred Morelos and Eduardo Herrera, have experienced contrasting fortunes so far.

Should Rangers make a move for Moult?
