Report: Rangers and Celtic interested in Caleb Ekuban

According to Ghanasoccernet.com, Celtic and Rangers are among the clubs interested in signing Caleb Ekuban from Trabzonspor in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is looking into the possibility of signing Ekuban this summer as a potential replacement for Alfredo Morelos.

The report has also credited Italian giants AC Milan with interest in the 26-year-old former Leeds United striker, who is valued at €10 million (£8.97 million).

Stats

According to WhoScored, Ekuban has made eight starts and seven substitute appearances in the Turkish Super Lig so far this season, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the process.

The striker has also made three starts and two substitute appearances in the Turkish Cup this campaign, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

Good signing for Rangers or Celtic?

Ekuban has had injury problems this season, but when the striker has played, he has done well.

The Ghana international did not have a good spell at Leeds United, but he would be a good option to have in the team at Rangers or Celtic.

It would be a risk for Rangers or Celtic to have the 26-year-old as their main striker, but as a back-up or as an option on the substitutes’ bench, he would not be bad.
