Who else could head to Ibrox in the January window?

With Arsenal midfielder Jon Toral reportedly on the brink of sealing a six-month loan deal at Rangers, who else could join the Spaniard at Ibrox before the January window closes?

The Ulster Gazelle hardly left Ibrox in the best of circumstances when he moved to Sion in 2012 but rumours persist that the Northern Ireland international could make a return to Glasgow. Lafferty scored 38 times in 138 appearances in four years at Rangers and has fallen out of favour at Norwich City and could be on his way out at Carrow Road.

Hamilton’s Ali Crawford has been attracting interest from Rangers for months now talks have apparently taken place about a move for the 25-year-old attacking midfielder. Crawford has made over 230 appearances for Martin Canning’s side, scoring 34 times, and has been tipped for a call up to the Scotland side.

21-year-old winger Nicholson is out of contract at Hearts in June and has been linked with a Bosman move to Ibrox although Mark Warburton may move to get his man immediately. Despite his young age Nicholson has made over 100 appearances for the Jambos. Nicholson has been injured since October but is set to return after the winter break.

Canos, like Toral, played under Warburton on loan at Brentford and could be reunited with his former boss in Glasgow. Canos left Liverpool in search of first team football at Norwich but has failed to make the breakthrough under Canaries boss Alex Neil. Rangers could face competition for Canos from Brentford however which could open up the door for one other Rangers target to move north...

When Jota returned to Brentford after struggling on loan at Eibar it was thought that was the end of any potential move to Ibrox however with Brentford reportedly interested in Sergi Canos it could open the door for Warburton to be reunited with another of his former players. Another attack minded player(noticed a trend here?), Jota could end up replacing Joe Garner, who is set for three months out after dislocating his shoulder against Celtic.
