Rangers remain interested in attacking midfielder Nick Powell, Teamtalk report.

The Wigan midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and is coveted by a number of clubs in England too.

 

 

Rangers are already working on transfer deals for next season, with The Scottish Sun reporting manager Steven Gerrard is setting up talks with Liverpool over loanee Ryan Kent.

Powell should be next on his list.

Gerrard is secure in his role, with chairman Dave King confirming the manager will remain in post next season, via STV.

Celtic are also interested, but their managerial situation remains uncertain and this could give Rangers the edge.

Powell's expiring contract has been common knowledge all season and Rangers will be well aware of the situation.

Rangers have a rare stability entering the off-season, unlike last year when Gerrard had just been appointed in the wake of a disastrous end under Graeme Murty.

This allows Rangers to start planning early and sounding Powell out now would be a smart move.

If Rangers leave it until June, it could be too late, and Celtic by then will have decided on their managerial situation and be ready to join the race too.

Acting early will give the Gers the best chance.
