Rangers close to securing a talented star despite Arsenal’s interest.



The Light Blues look set to secure the 16-year-old on a new deal

Rangers are close to signing prodigy Alexander Smith to a new deal, despite interest in him, according to reports.

The attacking midfielder was connected with Arsenal earlier this year, and he has also been tracked by other Premier League clubs and certain MLS teams. Despite this, the Gers are “closing in” on a new contract for the 16-year-old, though there is still some time to go, according to the Athletic.

The highly ranked left-footer is a dual national from Scotland and the United States, having represented both countries at the youth level. He has apparently been pursued by the Gunners for some time, and they were claimed to be prepared to provide a six-figure compensation fee in the summer to lure him south.

But the Light Blues now look set to tie Smith down by giving him his first professional contract.

The interested clubs are thought to be still pushing, so the Ibrox side may have a battle to maintain their man.
