Glasgow Rangers are considering an approach to sign Josh Onomah in January, according to reports in the last 48 hours.
The Lowdown: Out of favour
The Fulham midfielder has fallen down the pecking order under Marco Silva having made just two substitute appearances this season, meaning that an exit next year is highly likely.
The Scottish Premiership side are alert to the fact that the 25-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the campaign and Michael Beale appears to be keen on signing him, which wouldn’t be for the first time…
The Latest: Beale personally eyeing Onomah
According to Football Insider, Gers are ‘plotting’ a move to land Onomah in the New Year because the newly-appointed boss is a ‘long-term admirer’ of his target.
Beale ‘considered signing him’ over the summer when he was at QPR and now looks set to take a second bite of the cherry, though the manager will face competition from a ‘number’ of clubs in the Championship.
The Verdict: Potential bargain
Onomah is likely to be available on a cut-price deal in the winter given his contract and playing situation, so the Light Blues should capitalise by fending off any competitors to secure this potential bargain.
The former England U21s international has made 13 goal contributions since arriving at Craven Cottage and helped his side achieve automatic promotion to the top-flight last season.
Mauricio Pochettino has previously described Onomah as a ‘powerful’ player, and with Beale’s interest so strong, this could be one to look out for in January.
