Burnley are reportedly interested in signing Rangers attacking midfielder Josh Windass. The Gers star is set to leave the Ibrox after this season as the Scottish side are preparing to have a clearout this summer. Windass is reportedly available for £3m which should make him a luring option for Burnley to consider.

As for Rangers, they have had a tough season this time around. It began with great promise under Pedro Caixinha. The Portuguese boss implemented his own style of play and approach and it worked wonders for Rangers. The new boss made some interesting signings in the market and his team appeared to be gelling well.

However, as the season progressed, Caixinha’s team began to show cracks. Rangers’ form continued to wane and Caixinha was shown the door. In came Graeme Murty and he somehow managed to hold the ship from sinking. Rangers continued to do just enough to help their cause but the difference in the golfing class was shown by Celtic in their two clashes where the Hoops won 4-0 and 5-0.

It led to the sacking of Murty and to the appointment of Steven Gerrard. The Liverpool legend is set to take over next season but is already planning on the changes he wants to bring about in his squad. It is believed he wants players like Windass, Eduardo Herrara, Fabio Cardoso, Andy Halliday, Jak Alnwick, Joe Dodoo, Bruno Alves and Michael O’Halloran out of the team.

This has interested Burnley who want to snap up the 24-year old midfielder. Windass has had a fantastic season with Rangers and has been a first team player through and through. He has played 40 games this season and scored 17 goals and created 8 more. It is no mean feat for an attacking midfielder and one must wonder why Gerrard would want to get rid of him in the first place.

As for Burnley, the Clarets have surprised everyone with their football this season. They have been one of the lesser squads in the English League but have punched above their weight. Sean Dyche has produced a well drilled side who have hardly conceded any goals this season.

A gritty performance will see Burnley finish 7th this season and they can experience European football next season. They are clearly well set in defence but still need a few tweaks in attack. This is where the signing of Windass can come in handy as it would allow them to have more options in attack who can weigh in with goals.
