Rangers are keen to sign Nottingham Forest linked central defender Cameron Humphreys, according to the Daily Mail.

The 23-year-old is a free agent after his contract expired at Belgian outfit Zulte Waregem.

Humphreys came through the youth team ranks at Manchester City but headed for Belgium in 2019.

The central defender has made 28 appearances for the outfit and enjoyed a decent season overseas.

Now, he looks almost certain to head to England, with Stoke, Sheffield United and the Gers now ready to pounce.

Forest might need to move fast in order to sign the combative defender with other clubs snooping.

The Reds could find themselves in the market for another central defender during the summer.

If promotion isn’t obtained tomorrow, Joe Worrall could leave the club in the summer, with several clubs watching him.

That could make a space in the squad for another defender and the Reds could look at Humphreys.

He would be a decent addition to the team, with his best years ahead of him still.

Humphreys doesn’t have loads of experience playing men’s football but he is quickly getting up to speed with men’s football.

Rangers reached the Europa League Final this year and with Connor Goldson’s future uncertain, it’s no surprise they’re chasing a centre-back.

Rangers now want Humphreys and Forest might need to move quickly

This could be an interesting one for Forest.

They’ve already had three weeks than every other club to assemble a squad for next season but ultimately they don’t know what league they’ll be in yet.

As a result, they might need to move quickly if they have a desire to sign Humphreys ahead of Rangers.

Humphreys’ level is probably in the Championship right now, although Champions League football with Rangers must be tempting.

Forest will probably keep hold of Worrall if they don’t go up and that should see them well-stocked at centre-back.

One way or another it would seem that the highly-rated central defender is sought-after.

With that in mind, Forest might need to act quickly.
