According to The Daily Record, Glasgow Rangers have agreed a fee for Ross County’s James Graham.
The report says that the Gers have agreed a fee for the 16-year-old frontman, but they may have trouble securing his signature as they look to agree personal terms.
Manchester United and Liverpool have previously offered the teenager trials, whilst Leeds United are also said to be eager to secure his services, as are Wolves.
Attempting to sign Graham is an indicator that the Gers are looking forward rather than resting on their laurels in the present. At 16, the player will not be ready to break into the first team any time soon, but he could well be one to watch in the coming years.
Will Rangers sign Graham?
Clearly, the youngster has ability – not everyone is given the chance to impress the coaches at two of the biggest clubs on the planet. Currently at Ross County, he actually scored a brace for Liverpool’s U17s against Notts County last October during his trial period.
As ever, the interest from England could very well play a big role in the youngster’s decision-making. But the Gers do have the pedigree at least to provide a strong platform for him to show his talents during his first steps in the professional game. The Gers must hope that is enough to persuade him to make the move there, rather than opting for the bright lights of the English Premier League.
