Glasgow Rangers are reportedly considering trying to bring Milad Mohammadi to Ibrox this summer.

According to a report from The Scottish Sun, Rangers are interested in potentially making a move to sign Iran star Milad Mohammadi this summer as Steven Gerrard looks to take his number of signings into double figures.

The Gers have managed to strengthen all over the pitch during this window, with Lassana Coulibaly and Umar Sadiq becoming the Scottish Premiership side's latest acquisitions, with both men arriving on loan for the coming campaign.

And it appears that signing number 10 may be in Gerrard's sights. The Scottish Sun reports that the Gers are weighing up a pursuit of Mohammadi, who was part of the Iran side that featured at the World Cup in Russia. The 24-year-old is undoubtedly most famous for his attempted throw-in the group clash with Spain that involved a forward flip, but did not actually lead to the ball leaving the full-back's hands.

The Scottish Sun adds that he is expected to cost at least £2 million and a work permit is unlikely to be an issue if Rangers do decide to make a move and get close to finalising a deal at some stage.

Interestingly, Mohammadi is predominantly a left-back who can also play on the right-hand side of the defence or slightly further forward as a left winger. 

The Akhmat Grozny ace would be a good signing therefore, due to his versatility. But he adds further depth in a number of areas where Rangers already look fairly strong so it would appear that Gerrard either believes that Mohammadi would be an upgrade on one of the previously-established players in the side or feels that his arrival would allow the Gers to address a number of potential concerns in one deal.

Steven Gerrard is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers football Club at Ibrox Stadium on May 4, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.
