Rangers FC are still looking to bring some players through the door, and they could land one of their top targets if they act quickly.

Rangers FC kept their foot on the pedal over the weekend with a convincing victory over Dundee United to keep their place at the top of the table. With seven games in the books, Gers have claimed 19 points, are undefeated, and have not conceded a single goal.

The 54-time Scottish champions are playing with confidence, and they are displaying consistency at the same time. Some fans, especially neutrals around Scotland, argue that Rangers do not need to inject more quality into an already-strong side, but Steven Gerrard is not afraid of having too many options.

Rangers have been linked with two Premier League midfielders – Jacob Murphy of Newcastle United and John Lundstram of Sheffield United – this summer, but a new report out of Glasgow gives some insight on Lundstram’s current situation.

The report claims that Lundstram has not made a decision regarding the contract extension he was offered by the Blades’ front office, and that no formal bids have been submitted for his services, despite multiple clubs being interested.

So, what does this mean for Rangers? Well, it means the Scottish giants do not have any direct transfer rivals at the moment, and their bid, if one was to be submitted, would receive immediate attention.

The Light Blues have quality depth in central midfield, but Lundstram would be a great addition because of his ability to make plays happen in the final third, his composure on the ball, and his work rate defensively.

The Englishman finished last season with five goals and three assists, and his numbers would only improve with the dynamic talent Rangers have in midfield and on the front line.

It remains to be seen if Rangers will transform their interest in the player to a formal bid, especially now that no other offers are currently on the table for his signature.
