Millwall winger Jed Wallace has been tipped to join Rangers rather than Celtic, Newcastle United, or West Ham United and flourish at Ibrox next season.
The 27-year-old has been the beating heart of the Lions attack in recent years but is out of contract in the summer and yet to accept the new deal offered to him by the south London club.
Sources have exclusively informed Football League World that a string of clubs are keen on Wallace, including Celtic, Newcastle, Rangers, and West Ham.
FLW understands that it is looking increasingly difficult for Millwall to get the winger to sign a new deal and stay on at the Den, while the two Scottish clubs look to have the advantage in the race for him as they can agree a pre-contract in January.
Speaking to Football Insider, Kevin Phillips has tipped Steven Gerrard’s side to beat out the likes of Celtic, Newcastle, and West Ham and land Wallace ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
He said: “Wallace has been a top player for Millwall over the past few years. He has proved to be a good signing for them.
“I think he would shine if he went up there. He has all of the attributes to move up to Scotland, settle in quickly and do really well.
“We know he possesses a lot of quality so if he goes up to Rangers, which I can see happening, Steven Gerrard will be getting a player who can slot into that squad quickly.
“On a free it really would be a no-brainer.”
Are these 22 Millwall stats real or fake?
It’s no surprise that teams are queueing up to try and land Wallace given how impressive he’s been for Millwall in recent years.
Losing their talismanic winger would be a huge blow for Gary Rowett’s side and their struggles this term will not have helped their standing in contract negotiations.
He does seem exactly the sort of attacker that could move north of the border and flourish in the SPFL, though which side will land him appears unclear at the moment.
Phillips has tipped Rangers to win the race for him and the prospect of joining up with Gerrard at Ibrox may well appeal to him.
You feel there is still a long way to go in this transfer saga, however.
