Rangers close to landing Premier League duo while Celtic target Champions League star: Old Firm transfer rumours

Both Rangers and Celtic's managers have been quoted in the last 24 hours confirming they are still in the market for signings. Who could those be, we hear you ask. Here are the latest rumours.

First of all, the Scottish Sun has claimed that the Gers are close to agreeing a 'cut-price' move for West Brom attacker TYLER ROBERTS. The 19-year-old is out of contract this summer and so could make a move across the border for a compensation fee of only £300,000. Roberts has been on loan is on loan at League One Walsall until the end of January. So far, he has netted five league goals in 16 appearances for the Saddlers. The Express and Star reported earlier this week that Roberts has been offered a new deal at West Brom. The club are hopeful he will remain at the Hawthorsn, in which case he could return to Walsall on another loan deal. Marseille have also been linked with a move for the Wales Under 21 international.

The other player tipped with a move from the Premier League to the Scottish Premiership is Bournemouth midfielder EMERSON HYNDMAN. The 21-year-old enjoyed a loan spell at Ibrox during the second half of last season and is set to join again on a similar deal according to the Scottish Sun. The report claims that Eddie Howe will give the move his blessing in order for the USA international to gain more time on the pitch.

Meanwhile, at Celtic Park, still the number one name linked with a move is Besiktas defender DUSKO TOSIC. The Bhoys have even tabled an offer for the Besiktas man, according to Turkish outlet Aksam. The report says they'll have to stump up an extra €1 million to add to the €3 million they have already offered but Aksam reckon there is a 'high likelihood' of successful negotiations over the 32-year-old. Tosic started all six group games as Besiktas went unbeaten to set up a Champions League knock-out tie against Bayern Munich.
