Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is considering making a move for young ​West Ham defender Reece Burke this summer.

The ​Liverpool legend has already made two signings for the Scottish giants since being made manager on May 4 in Scott Arfield from Burnley and Hull City's Allan McGregor, and wants Burke to join the revolution.

Gerrard may have his work cut out because Burke, as reported by the ​Mirror, is being coveted by Championship clubs Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa and Leeds United.

The 21-year-old spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Bolton Wanderers and impressed at the Macron Stadium.


For the Hammers he has made 15 appearances since breaking into the first team and he scored his first ever senior goal at the start of the season, but he could be tempted by working with Gerrard, who is determined to knock Celtic off their perch.

Gerrard is also eyeing up a move for Liverpool's Dominic Solanke, suggesting he wants to embed some younger players into his team.


West Ham face losing another one of their young talents for the new season in Reece Oxford, who is keen to extend his stay in the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach. 

That said, ​Declan Rice is reportedly poised to commit his future to the club after some great performances in the Premier League in 2017/18.​
