Bolton Wanderers striker, Josh Magennis has emerged as a potential transfer target for Scottish giants, Rangers according to the Belfast Telegraph.
The Northern Irishman has one year left on his current deal with Bolton, who will be preparing for life back in League One, following their relegation from the Championship last season.
He has experience of playing in Scotland as well, having previously played for both Aberdeen and Kilmarnock earlier into his career.
Magennis is a player that will be in a confident mood heading into the summer, after netting the winner for Northern Ireland in their recent win over Estonia.
He made 42 appearances for Bolton, and scored four league goals for Phil Parkinson’s side as they were eventually relegated into the third tier of English football.
It’s been far from ideal preparation for the Bolton boss heading into next season as well, as it was recently revealed by journalist, Marc Iles, that Parkinson only has nine players registered ahead of next year’s campaign.
With finances still tight at the club, it’s likely that we could see further departures over the summer, and Magennis will be weighing up his options now that Rangers have reportedly registered their interest in signing him.
Bolton recently issued an update on their off-the-field troubles, with a deadline being set for bidders to submit proof of funding ahead of a potential takeover of the club.
He’ll surely be tempted by a move.
Bolton are a club that are going to need wholesale changes ahead of next season, and Magennis will have his eyes on a move elsewhere.
Rangers are a huge club, with a great history, and surely it’s going to be a no-brainer for Magennis if an offer is accepted by the Trotters?
