Glasgow Rangers have enquired over the possibility of signing Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster on loan, according to the Read Liverpool website.
The Gers are still coming to terms with missing out on the Scottish Premiership title once again, when the league was curtailed prematurely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and are already looking at how they can strengthen as they bid to finally end the Celtic dominance next term.
Rangers were in a good position to launch a bid for a first domestic top flight crown since 2011, when heading into 2020 they were within a couple of points of their rivals, however their form after the winter break was dreadful and they faded out of contention quickly.
One area Gers boss Steven Gerrard looks to have identified where an improvement is needed is in the forward positions, which has led to the Scottish giants enquiring about the possibility of taking Brewster on loan.
Rangers currently have Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos as their attacking options, but they are expected to face some hefty bids for the latter this summer, heightening the need for another player in that area of the pitch.
If the Gers are to get their man they could have a battle on their hands. Brewster is currently on loan at Swansea City in the Championship, where he has made a big impression with four goals in 11 matches, and the Welsh outfit could well consider trying to keep the 20-year-old for next term too.
Despite that, it is believed that representatives of Brewster would rather he head north to Rangers instead of staying in the second tier in England, and the lure of working under Gerrard again could have the Ibrox outfit leading the way for his signature.
It is set to be another busy summer of transfer activity for Rangers, and if their boss gets his way, the Liverpool forward will be one of those coming through the door.
