Rangers are eyeing a move for Charlton Athletic striker Karlan Ahearne-Grant, according to The Herald.

The 21-year-old is a man in-demand after scoring 13 goals so far this season. The Addicks have already rebuffed a bid by Championship side Brentford this month.

Scottish Premiership giants Rangers are the latest side to be credited with an interest. Steven Gerrard’s side are looking for potential replacements for Alfredo Morelos, who could leave Ibrox.

Ahearne-Grant is out-of-contract at the end of the season which has fuelled rumours that he is going to depart the club in the near future.

The youngster started his career at the Charlton academy and rose through the youth ranks at the Valley. He was handed his first professional contract in September 2014 when he was 17 years-old.

He made his first-team debut for the Addicks in a Championship fixture against Norwich City shortly after. He has since played 96 games for the London side to date, scoring 20 goals.

Ahearne-Grant has also had two loan spells so far in his career. The first was a brief stint at Cambridge United in the 2015/16, the latter was with Crawley Town last season in League Two where he bagged 9 goals in 15 appearances.

He has also represented England at U17, U18 and U19 level so far in his career. Charlton boss Lee Bowyer will be desperate to hold onto him but his side are in a difficult position with his contract running out.
