Rangers could make a move for Everton’s Tom Davies this summer.
That’s according to talkSPORT, who claim that the Scottish giants have reignited their interest in the midfielder.
Everton confirmed that Davies had turned down a new contract yesterday after spending the last 13 years with the club.
The midfielder broke onto the scene during the 2016-17 campaign but has so far failed to live up to his potential and only made four starts in the Premier League last season.
Davies has previously been praised for his patience and commitment to the club, with Frank Lampard hailing him as a ‘fantastic lad’ that he ‘respects’ as he sat on the fringes of the first team during a second relegation scrap.
Davies is already the subject of interest this summer and it will come as no surprise to see Rangers targeting the 24-year-old given their previous admiration for him.

Speaking on Davies and Todd Cantwell in January, Michael Beale said: “No names but I think they are both good players to be fair.
“And Tom Davies, he used to kick my Liverpool Under 23s team all around the place. There’s a bit of John Lundstram about him. But again, two really good players.
“Not confirming anything with those two. But there’s a lot of players we are speaking to at the moment.”
Rangers went onto confirm the signing of Cantwell weeks later and they could now look to bring Davies to the Ibrox Stadium this summer too.
Tom Davies would succeed at Rangers but was right to reject Everton
A lot of Everton fans were left frustrated when the news came out that Tom Davies had been offered a new contract after a disappointing few years at Goodison Park.
While it will have been nice for the Toffees academy product to have the option of staying at his boyhood club, it was definitely the sensible idea to leave to avoid a souring relationship with the fans.
Rangers is arguably one of the best places for Davies and Todd Cantwell’s success reflects that.
The struggling winger joined from Norwich City and went onto claim six goals and four assists in only 16 matches.
Scotland seems to be a great destination for players to reignite their career and that is what Davies needs.
