Glasgow Rangers are eyeing-up a summer swoop for former-Manchester United youth star Ryan Tunnicliffe, according to the Daily Mail.

The 24-year-old, who is currently on-loan at Championship strugglers Wigan Athletic from fellow second-tier club Fulham, is set to be out of contract this summer in West London – and the Gers are one of several sides monitoring the dynamic midfielder.

The Englishman was part of the same squad as Paul Pogba, Ravel Morrison and Jesse Lingard during their successful FA Youth Cup run in 2011, and was also awarded the Red Devils’ Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award that season.

Due to the emergence of stars such as Tom Cairney, it is expected that the Whites will allow the former England under-16 and under-17 international to leave Craven Cottage this summer on a free transfer.

However, it is reported that Rangers will have to contend with Reading, Huddersfield Town, Brentford, Queens Park Rangers, Ipswich Town, Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest as well as temporary employees Wigan in order to secure the signature of the highly sought-after player.

Tunnicliffe has made over 150 appearances in the Championship, and would give Rangers new boss Pedro Caixinha greater squad depth with the ability to play throughout the midfield.
