Rangers in battle to fight off interest from Arsenal, Leicester and Newcastle in youngster Leon King

Rangers kid Leon King is considering a second improved contract offer from the Ibrox side, after Arsenal, Newcastle United and Leicester City joined the chase for the highly-rated defender.

The young stopper, who turns 16 this week but has already played for Scotland Under-17s, turned down Steven Gerrard’s initial offer of a professional contract last year.

He came through the ranks in the Rangers Academy, and featured for their development side aged just 14.

That alerted a host of clubs in the English Premier League and several abroad, with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea all being credited with an interest, along with RB Leipzig in Germany.

Rangers have now been in further talks with King’s representatives and a new offer is on the table.

But the two sides are still believed to be some distance from agreeing on a new deal, with doubts about his pathway to the first-team seen as an obstacle.

Rangers are desperate to avoid losing King for a cut-price fee in a repeat scenario of Billy Gilmour three years ago, who left for Chelsea for just £500,000.
