According to Steven Beck, the agent of James Garner, Glasgow Rangers are interested in signing the midfielder.
Rangers want Garner
The £3.6m-valued 20-year-old is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest from Premier League giants Manchester United.
Speaking to Stretty News, Beck has revealed the Gers are eyeing a move for the youngster. He said:
“I had a couple of chats with John Murtough last week, but I’m so relaxed on the situation, as is James because things are going so well for him. […] James has put himself in a great position where he’s probably going to have, if he does go out on loan again, the majority of the Championship and I would be amazed if one or two Premier League clubs don’t try and do something.
“I know Brighton like him, I know Norwich like him. […] I know Rangers are really keen on him as well.”
Plenty of talent
Any player who comes through the Red Devils’ youth system must be a talented one, and Garner clearly seems to be. He has so far appeared seven times for their senior side, while he has played on 33 occasions for Forest in the Championship (Transfermarkt). He has plenty of time left ahead of him to improve and he has even been compared to Old Trafford legend Michael Carrick (The Athletic).
Would you like to sign Garner?
As it stands, he has just one year left on his contract, so Steven Gerrard and co could well be able to sign him permanently should they wish. However, Beck discussed a loan move here, and whether Ross Wilson and co would be willing to take him just for one campaign remains to be seen.
In other news, Rangers have been urged to sign this striker.
