Rangers are set to test Hibernian's resolve over starlets Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson.
The midfield pair are among the most highly rated players in Scotland and Hibs know they face a battle to keep them.
Premiership clubs Charlton and Everton are known to be keen on them, while Celtic are also keeping a watching brief - but Rangers could look to beat all suitors to the punch by making a big-money offer.
Hibs boss John Collins has already issued a 'hands off' warning over both Thomson (pictured) and Brown, but it remains to be seen whether the Edinburgh club could resist a multi-million pound offer.
Rangers could help fund any bid for the Hibs duo be selling Fernando Ricksen.
The Dutchman is currently on loan at Zenit St Petersburg and with their season due to finish on November 28 - a permanent deal could soon be struck.
"Zenit are very happy with Fernando and he seems to be quite happy in Russia," said agent Rob Jansen told the Scottish Daily Mail
"I am scheduled to fly to St Petersburg within the next two weeks for talks to make the deal permanent on Fernando's behalf."
Meanwhile, Rangers are also working hard to keep one of their own prized assets with Chris Burke understood to have cancelled contract talks.
The 22-year-old is out of contract in next year and The Gers had hoped he would put pen-to-paper on a new deal in the next few weeks.
However, it is now believed that Burke and his father, who acts as his son's advisor, have informed Rangers that talks are on hold until next year.
