Rangers are interested in signing Jamie Murphy from Brighton and Hove Albion in the January transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that Ibrox club Rangers are planning to make a £1.2 million move for the 28-year-old winger in January.

The former Scotland Under-21 international is reportedly eager to move on after finding it hard to play regularly for Brighton in the Premier League this season.

Murphy has played a total of 166 minutes in the Premier League for the Seagulls so far this season, according to WhoScored.

According to The Scottish Sun, a loan deal is a possibility, but Rangers’ director of football Mark Allen is pushing to sign the winger on a permanent contract.

Signing Murphy would be a blockbuster move for Rangers, given that the winger is a Premier League footballer at the moment.

According to a report in The Glasgow Evening Times back in November 2012, Murphy is a Rangers fan.
