Ikpeazu has played against both Celtic and Rangers for Hearts this season, in which he has scored six goals in 20 appearances across all competitions.
And that could earn him a move to one of the Scottish Premiership's big two, less than a year since his debut in the competition - although it is claimed that Celtic and Rangers have rivals from south of the border, in the shape of Cardiff and Hull.
The newspaper adds Hearts would be looking for around £1 million for the 24-year-old, despite him having only extended his contract at Tynecastle last month.
But what do those of a Hearts persuasion make of the rumour?

No chance Uche will allow his career to be ruined by either club. Wherever he goes he will be going to be their no.1 striker— The Tynecastle Standers (@TStanders) 2 April 2019
So unbelievably predictable from this rag. He isn't going anywhere and especially not along the M8— Paula ❤️ (@scottishchicp) 2 April 2019
Lot... of... pish!— View from Gorgie (@ViewfromGorgie) 2 April 2019
Unreal eh. Every single time— JAMESY (@JAMESY83780674) 2 April 2019
As per usual because we are playing one of the ugly sisters these pish papers release this absolute shite.— Daniel Mark Tulloch (@dtulloch20) 2 April 2019
He just signed a new contract muppets— Kempy79 (@kempy79) 2 April 2019
That's one way for him to get decisions from our referees- move to the old firm.— Ian Horsburgh (@ianhorsburgh) 2 April 2019
Won’t happen mate, typical sun, we play an old firm team n all of a sudden it’s “Awh Rangers want a hearts player”— Ross (@Rxss_74) 2 April 2019
Neither Celtic nor Rangers are currently short of centre-forwards, although news of their alleged interest in Ikpeazu could cause concern for the likes of Vakoun Issouf Bayo and Kyle Lafferty at Parkhead and Ibrox respectively.
Celtic now lead second-placed Rangers by 13 points after Sunday's Old Firm win over Steven Gerrard's side.
Could Ikpeazu really leave Hearts for Celtic or Rangers?
