Rangers are again being linked with a move for Murphy, who supported the Ibrox side growing up.
The Scottish winger has played only a bit-part role for Brighton & Hove Albion this season, prompting Rangers to 'plot a £1.2 million swoop'.
It is also claimed that a loan deal could be facilitated, with Murphy 'eager to move on' - and assuming Rangers aren't blown out of the water by a rival bidder, a move to Ibrox looks a good bet for the boyhood Gers fan.
Such is Murphy's desire to play for Rangers, he was keen on doing so even when they were a fourth tier side - as reported by the Glasgow Evening Times in November 2012.
However, with Rangers then under a transfer embargo, they were powerless to prevent Murphy's transfer to Sheffield United only a few months later.
Rangers have no such issues now though, and surely the 28-year-old would still be tempted by a move to Ibrox, with heroes a Premiership side once more.
Would Murphy be a good signing for Rangers?
