Tottenham face competition from Rangers for highly-rated 19-year-old League One ace

Rangers join Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Wigan striker Kyle Joseph

A report by the Sun on Sunday (h/t Glasgow Live) states that Scottish side Rangers are interested in signing Wigan Athletic striker and Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Kyle Joseph.

The 19-year-old forward is out of contract in the summer of 2021. This means that he is open to negotiating with foreign clubs over a free transfer in the summer.

This is where the Glasgow side would have an advantage over Spurs if the two lock horns for signing Joseph. They could sign him for a minimal transfer fee as compensation while English clubs would have to go to a tribunal. (h/t Glasgow Live)

The U-21 Scotland striker has 4 goals in 11 games this season for Wigan Athletic. He was approached by Spurs in the summer, but the move did not materialise and he stayed with the League One side.

A bargain signing

Blackpool’s interest was also fended off by the financially struggling Latics, who quoted a £1million fee for their frontman. The club is facing serious financial difficulties and could be open to selling Joseph due to this.

Currently, Spurs have Carlos Vinicius as the only natural striker apart from Harry Kane. However, the SL Benfica loanee is scheduled to return to his parent club in the summer.

This leaves Jose Mourinho short in the striker’s department on paper. Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min can both play at centre-forward but neither is an out-and-out No.9.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

Steven Gerrard’s team are also interested in winger Alfie Doughty and forward Fashion Sakala. If Rangers do manage to get either of those attackers, it might play in Spurs’ favour when it comes to signing Joseph.
