Rangers have been linked with a move for one of Tottenham’s most highly rated youngsters, while a move for Liverpool’s Jordan Rossiter is almost complete.
Mark Warburton took his Rangers team to North London yesterday to take on a Tottenham XI and as well as guiding his team to a 4-3 victory, the Gers boss was reportedly also checking up on Spurs youngster Alex Pritchard, who he is looking to bring to Ibrox on loan next season.
Pritchard, who spent half of this season on loan at West Brom has endured a frustrating campaign, playing just 66 minutes after an ankle injury ruled him out for three months.
Warburton knows the former England Under-21 international well after signing him on loan for his previous club, Brentford, where he scored 12 goals and weighed in with seven assists in 47 appearances for the Championship club.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who penned a new five year deal today, has high hopes for Pritchard but may be willing to allow him to leave on loan again this summer in order to gain further experience.
Rangers are also close to completing the signing of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter on a four-year deal.
Liverpool had offered the 19-year-old a new deal but he is keen to move to Glasgow to secure more first team football.
The Gers are expected to pay a development compensation fee of around £250,000 – a fraction of the near £8million compensation fee that clubs south of the border would need to pay to secure his signature.
Tough tackling central midfielder Rossiter would be seen as an ideal replacement for Dominic Ball who has played the midfield enforcer role for the Gers this season but will return to Tottenham at the end of the campaign following his loan spell.
