Glasgow Rangers are reportedly keen on bringing the forward to Ibrox this month.
The 22-year-old only moved to the City Ground in the summer, after making his £1 million switch from Hibernian, but has registered just four goals in 17 appearances in all competitions for the Reds thus far.
Mark Warburton brought Cummings to the club in the summer, and after his recent sacking, it is unclear what the future holds for the Scotland international.
The Sunday Post claims that Graeme Murty is concerned with his lack of striking options, especially with Kenny Miller currently out injured, and sees Cummings as the ideal signing to help add potency to his attack.
The 22-year-old would be an excellent signing for Rangers, considering his wealth of experience of playing in the Scottish game.
His goalscoring record against the Gers is also quite remarkable.
Cummings notched up eight goals against the Glasgow giants during a two-year period, and how the Rangers fans would love to see their former nemesis doing the business for them for a change.
