Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are also reported to want the 15-year-old from Rangers.

King turned down an initial offer from Rangers, who have now put an improved deal on the table, which the youngster is considering, according to the report, which has added that the two parties are still some way off from reaching an agreement.

 

Rangers stay

King will turn 16 this week, and it is clear that the Rangers youngster has a bright future ahead of him.

While it makes sense for the teenager’s representatives to get the best deal possible from Rangers, it must be considered that the Gers have a very good academy where he will progress and develop in the coming years.

At this stage of his growth and development as a footballer, King needs a club which will give him the best facilities to get better.
