Rangers Keen To Sign This Preston North End Outcast: A Smashing Move In The Offing?

As per one of the latest reports by Daily Mail, Rangers are perceived to be interested to sign former Motherwell striker, Louis Moult, in the summer. Moult was a subject of interest for the Glasgow based outfit last summer when Pedro Caixinha was the manager of the club, but the Portuguese decided to go for Eduardo Herrera instead of Moult to beef up his arsenal.

After the departure of Caixinha, Graeme Murty has taken the command of the steering wheel and he has managed to do a handsome job as the manager of Rangers. Under his tutelage, the Gers have managed to move up to the 2nd spot in the Scottish Premiership table and have collected 58 points from 31 league games. Rangers have started to hit the right chords once again but it would be important to keep the momentum going next season as well.

It is expected that Murty would enhance the quality of his attacking sector and it would make a lot of sense if they get hold of Moult. The 25-year-old was superb for Motherwell last season and has continued his form this season as well. He had smashed 8 goals in 15 appearances in the Scottish top flight before he was signed by Preston North End in the January transfer window.

However, he hasn’t received the adequate amount of opportunities after shifting to the Championship outfit as he has garnered merely 2 starts in the English second division so far this campaign under the stewardship of Alex Neil. If the scenario doesn’t change in the coming months, the 25-year-old might fancy moving back to Scotland in search of regular first-team football.

Moult is a shrewd attacker and the experience he notched up during his spell in the ranks of the Steelmen makes him a perfect target for Rangers. He is tall, well-built and has an intense knack to score goals on a regular basis. Besides, he creates chances time and again for his teammates up front, is good in the air and is a poacher inside the box.

The Light Blues need to curtail the gap between them and their arch-rivals, Celtic, next season in order to engineer domestic superiority and thus, Murty needs to make some solid additions in the summer. Although Moult has three years left in his current deal with the Lancashire based club, a move to the Ibrox Stadium should appeal him and if Murty manages to make him sign on the dotted line, it would be a stupendous move for the benefit of the club.
