Rangers weigh up move for former Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram as Steven Gerrard looks to strengthen his title-winning squad

  • Rangers are considering a move for ex-Sheffield United man John Lundstram 
  • The midfielder left the Blades after his contract expired at the end of the season 
  • Steven Gerrard is looking to strenghthen his squad ahead of the new campaign 

Rangers have been linked with a renewed interest in midfielder John Lundstram.

The 27-year-old Englishman came onto the Ibrox radar last year when it was revealed he was likely to leave after seeing out his Sheffield United contract.

Lundstram is now a free agent after that deal expired and is thought to be one of a number of options under consideration at Ibrox. Steven Gerrard has already added Nnamdi Ofoborh to his midfield armoury for next season after he agreed a pre-contract move from Bournemouth.

A number of English clubs are also tracking Lundstram, who played for Oxford before switching to Sheffield United in 2017.

The Liverpool-born player was a key part of the side as they finished ninth on their return to the Premier League before falling out of the first-team picture last season. 

Meanwhile, Alfredo Morelos’ return to Rangers will be delayed after Colombia booked a Copa America semi-final date with Lionel Messi’s Argentina later this week — despite the Ibrox hitman not even making the South American nation’s bench for their quarter-final win.

The striker, who is wanted by Porto in a £12million transfer, is still in Brazil and his nation are now through to the last four after they defeated Uruguay on penalties following a goalless draw in the quarter-finals.

Morelos was one of only three Colombians in their 27-man squad who were not even named on the bench, along with Porto’s Matheus Uribe and Jhon Lucumí of Genk.

He has played just nine minutes of the five games in the tournament so far, but will remain in Brazil until the semi-final against Argentina on Tuesday and maybe even the final next weekend if they beat Messi and Co.
