The Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, is set to add another midfielder to his Ibrox ranks.

Rangers have entered talks over a loan move for Andy King, according to the Leicester Mercury.

The newspaper claims King will travel to Glasgow on Thursday to discuss joining Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

The midfielder has found his opportunities limited at Leicester City, who have added Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet have all arrived in his position this summer.

And with the transfer window now closed for clubs in England’s top two divisions, Rangers could find their path to King relatively unblocked.

The 30-year-old has scored or made 85 goals in 375 games for Leicester, with whom he won the Premier League title in 2016.

Gerrard’s former England teammate, Frank Lampard, signed King on loan for Derby County last season, although injury limited the Wales international’s impact at Pride Park.

Rangers already have plenty of options in King’s position, and his arrival would perhaps raise questions about the futures of Jason Holt, Graham Dorrans, Andy Halliday and Greg Docherty at Ibrox.

Would King be a good addition for Rangers?
