Rangers manager Steven Gerrard could be interested in bringing Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn to Ibrox in the January transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that Rangers manager Gerrard has been alerted to the availability of Woodburn, who is back at Liverpool after his season-long loan spell at Sheffield United in the Championship was cut short due to lack of playing time.

 

Rangers reportedly wanted to secure the services of the 19-year-old Wales international in the summer of 2019.

Promising talent

Woodburn is on the sidelines at the moment with an ankle injury, but the forward will be a good loan signing for any club after he recovers.

The 19-year-old is a very good and promising young forward who will be an asset for Rangers in their quest to win the Scottish Premiership title this season.

During his loan spell at United this season, the Wales international made just one start and six substitute appearances in the Championship, according to WhoScored.
