Rangers are in talks to sign Norwich’s Todd Cantwell (L) and Swansea’s Morgan Whittaker (R).

And the Gers want offensive reinforcements with the signings of Cantwell and Whitaker.

Norwich’s Cantwell broke onto the scene with the Canaries during their 2018-19 Championship promotion season – before also impressing in the following Premier League season – when he scored six goals.

Norwich were relegated that year but became champions again the following season, with the attacking midfielder shining.

However, he fell out of favor last season and spent time on loan at Bournemouth – but failed to score at the Cherries.

He was reintegrated into the squad this year but has not scored or assisted in 18 games and Cantwell has not played since the World Cup.

And it now looks like he is leaving his boyhood club, with Beale confirming the clubs are in talks.

Speaking about Cantwell’s potential move earlier this week, the Rangers boss said: “I’m really happy with the way things are going. No news means no bad news.’

Whittaker is also being chased by Rangers after spending the first half of the campaign on loan with League One high-flyers Plymouth.

The winger scored nine goals and added seven assists during his time at Home Park and Beale also confirmed the club’s interest in him.

He explained: ‘He’s a player we know. I think he’s a good player. He’s certainly a player I know.

“We look at all areas, but of course we want to bring more goals to the club. We need goal scorers in the building.”
