Rangers are plotting a move for Leeds United left-back Tom Pearce this summer. According to recent reports, the Gers are looking to secure the services of the English youngster during this summer transfer period. The new Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is on the lookout to recruit some fresh faces who can help the Glaswegian club challenge for some major silverware next term.
Some sources are now claiming that the Teddy Bears are keeping tabs on the Leeds starlet’s progress at Elland Road ahead of a potential move in the summer. Pearce managed to break into the Whites’ first-team in the second half of the last campaign. The Ormskirk-born talent has caught the eye with some solid displays for the Peacocks during the course of last season which has not gone unnoticed.
Pearce had featured in 5 matches for Leeds last season and has one goal to his name across all competitions. He is exactly the kind of talent who can flourish under the guidance of Gerrard next season. The English full-back has massive potential and could turn out to be a shrewd signing for the Gers if they can pull off a deal in the coming months.
Rangers had to endure a difficult campaign last term but the appointment of Gerrard as their first-team manager has helped raise the spirits of their loyal supporters. The Glaswegian side are in dire need to make some clever additions in this transfer period so that they can bridge the gap between themselves and Celtic in the coming years.
However, it will be a big blow for Leeds if they end up parting ways with their prized asset. Pearce has the potential to be a future star for the Peacocks so they should do everything in their power to try and retain the youngster’s services for the long-run.

The English wonderkid arrived at West Yorkshire from Everton‘s academy in the summer of 2014. He has steadily managed to develop his game and is in contention to feature on a more regular basis under a new manager in the Leeds first-team next season. At the mere age of 20, the English starlet still has a lot of time to develop and take his game to the next level. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Pearce and whether he ends up making a switch away from Elland Road this summer.
