RANGERS have been linked with a move for Brentford midfielder Toumani Diagouraga, according to reports.
However, the Gers will face competition from the likes of Leeds, Huddersfield and Fulham in a bid to tempt the French midfielder north of the Border.
Diagouraga, who began his career with Watford, enjoying spells with Swindon, Rotherham, Hereford, Peterborough, Portsmouth and Brentford played a key role in the Bees reaching the Championship play-off semi-finals.
The defensive midfielder is much admired by Leeds boss Uwe Rosler, while Huddersfield are also in the market for a defensive midfielder.
It is believed that Brentford are reluctant to lose Diagouraga, however, and the Bees are expected to rebuff any offers for the highly-rated 28-year-old.
New Ibrox boss Mark Warburton has been linked with current Bees midfielder Jonathan Douglas, while recent signing Rob Kiernan had a spell with Brentford in the 2012/13 season.
