Scottish Premier League giants Rangers are plotting a summer move for Preston North End striker Louis Moult, according to the Sun.

The 25 year-old forward only joined Preston in the January transfer window from Motherwell but has failed to make an impact at Deepdale. He has failed to score in 7 games so far.

Rangers tried to sign him in January as well but Moult favoured a move to the Football League. The Glasgow side are now reportedly renewing their interest in him.

However, Preston may be reluctant to let him leave and you could argue that he still needs time to adjust to Championship level.

He scored 14 goals for Motherwell this season and Rangers boss Graeme Murty is believed to be a big fan of him. He had also bagged 18 goals in all competitions in his previous two seasons with Motherwell so obviously knows where the goal is in Scottish Football.

He started his career at Stoke City but only ever made three senior appearances for the Potters. He had loan stints at Bradford City, Mansfield Town, Accrington Stanley and Alfreton Town before leaving Stoke to join Northampton on a permanent basis in 2012.

After a difficult season with the Cobblers, Moult dropped into non-league and had successful spells at Nuneaton Town and Wrexham before he was snapped up by Motherwell in June 2015 for an undisclosed fee.

Preston fans will feel the best is yet to come for Louis Moult. But with Rangers sniffing around him, it will be interesting to see if the Championship side will cash in on him already.
