According to the reports from Daily Record, Rangers are set to face competition from Premier League club Sheffield United to sign Stoke City’s striker Tyrese Campbell. Celtic are also said to be in the mix, but the entry of a Premier League club could change the game for both the Glaswegian giants.

Stoke City are also keen to get Campbell on a new contract. The 20-year-old is in the final few months of his deal at the club, and he is yet to decide about his future. The Potters have tabled an offer for the forward, but Campbell hasn’t put pen on paper.

The English forward struggled for game time earlier this season, but he has managed to turn the tide in the last few weeks. Campbell, in his previous five Championship appearances, has four goals and one assist to his name. The striker recently played a crucial role for the Potters in the win against table-toppers West Brom where Campbell managed to score the only goal of the game.

Why should Rangers look to sign a striker?

Rangers have challenged Celtic well this season, and one of the reasons for that is Gerrard has two in-form strikers in Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos. The club are not in desperate need to add a striker this month, but Gerrard should definitely consider getting one soon as Defoe isn’t going to be around for long and Morelos might move away in the summer if the club receives a top offer for him.

Campbell is said to be available on a cut-price deal and Rangers can sign him for as low as £400,000. However, Sheffield boss Chris Wilder has already indicated that the Blades are going to be active in the last week of the window and the latest reports of them being linked with Campbell doesn’t seem like a piece of good news for the Bears.

Will he be a good signing for Rangers?

The striker is knowns for his pace and physicality, and he also puts in a decent shift upfront. Campbell is an England u-20 international, but he is still trying to establish himself at the club level. His recent form has turned quite a few heads, and for a bargain fee, we believe that he would be a decent addition for Rangers.

However, Sheffield United can offer him a chance to play in the Premier League, and the Blades can provide him with a better financial deal so that could go against Rangers. Stoke City are also keen to keep him. Nevertheless, the Gers should try everything in their means to get this deal done.
