Rangers to make fresh move for Swansea City attacker Morgan Whittaker this summer

Rangers will make a fresh bid for Swansea City attacking midfielder Morgan Whittaker this summer, reports the Daily Record.

The Scottish Premiership club attempted to sign the 22-year-old during the January transfer window.

However, Swansea insisted Whittaker was not for sale and recalled him from his loan spell with Plymouth Argyle.

The England youth international was set to spend the whole season on loan at the League One club.

He bagged nine goals and seven assists in 25 league games, and Rangers wanted to snap him up.

However, Swansea rejected their bids and ended Whittaker’s loan spell to boost their promotion chances.

The Welsh club are 12th in the Championship with two games remaining in the regular season.

They are three points off the play-off spots and will need to win their next two games and hope other results go their way to finish in the top six.

Swansea will need a miracle to earn Premier League promotion and Whittaker is ready to move on.

The youngster is still keen on joining Rangers and manager Michael Beale has continued to keep tabs on him.

The Ibrox club are preparing to make major squad changes this summer after missing out on the Premiership and Scottish League Cup to Celtic.

Whittaker has the quality to improve the Light Blues attack, but there are several other English clubs interested in signing him.

He has played 14 Championship games since returning to Swansea but has started twice.

Whittaker wants regular playing opportunities, and a move to Ibrox could give him the opportunity.
