Why Rangers must sign Stoke City’s Tyrese Campbell

According to Daily Record, Rangers have informed Stoke City of their intention to hold pre-contract talks with starlet Tyrese Campbell.

Tyrese Campbell, 20, who came through Manchester City’s youth ranks, was bought by the Potters in the summer of 2016. He was sent on loan to Shrewsbury Town last season before breaking through Stoke’s senior team on his return.

Campbell is out of contract this summer and can move to Scotland for a compensation fee of £400,000, according to the report.

Meanwhile, Steven Gerrard-led Rangers are well-placed in 2nd position in the Premiership standings as they hope to claim their first title under the manager.

They have been excellent this campaign and their 2-1 victory in the last Glasgow derby has boosted their confidence going into the second half of the season.

It was an act of sweet revenge for their loss to the same opponents in the Bretford Cup final, which the Hoops narrowly won last month.

The players are set to return after a long vacation and Gerrard should make sure that they are ready for the upcoming games. Regarding the reinforcements, Gerrard will be looking to trim his squad and that could allow him to sign fresh faces, according to the Express.

In that case, the former Liverpool man should bring in a striker. Alfredo Morelos has been outstanding this season and Jermain Defoe has been a perfect backup for the Colombian. In 16 games, the Englishman has scored 11 goals this campaign.

While Greg Stewart has got his fair share of games, Eduardo Herrera has just returned from his loan spell and both of them have crossed their prime. Despite the good form, Defoe is growing old and isn’t a long-term option by any means.

It is a clear indication that Rangers need a young striker who can partner the Colombian. Therefore, Tyrese Campbell would be a perfect fit for the squad.

The 20-year-old is in a fine run of form after being deprived of game time earlier in the season. But since new boss Michael O’Neill’s arrival, the youngster has got his chance and scored three in the last four outings, including the brace against Huddersfield.

The Cheadle Hulme-born striker has featured in 17 Championship games and looks to be developing himself well. He has also featured 2 times for the England U-20 side and scored twice.

Campbell is highly-regarded inside the club and is one of the best young talents within the country. He has all the potential to succeed at a higher level if he fulfils his potential.
