Striker on radar

Celtic and Rangers are both reportedly ‘interested’ in Reading youngster Luca Fletcher, according to Football Insider. The striker, who is 15, is also said to be on the radar of Premier League side West Ham with the Royals facing a battle to keep hold of the highly-rated prospect.

The teenager is an England youth international but is facing an uncertain future with his current club. He is versatile and can also play on either flank.

Goalkeeper speaks out

Rangers have been linked with Preston North End goalkeeper Freddie Woodman recently. The stopper made the switch to Deepdale last summer from Newcastle United after loan spells with the likes of Aberdeen, Swansea City and AFC Bournemouth and he has made the number one spot his own this term with the Championship outfit.

He has spoken about the transfer speculation but has insisted he is happy where he is, as per the Lancashire Post: “I’ve made some really good friends and I come into work every day and I love it. I love being part of the team and being part of the club. I couldn’t have asked for it to go better in terms of that. I’m really enjoying it and hoping to keep improving in the team.”
