Rangers need to bring attacking cover to Anfield in January, with Martyn Waghorn the only consistent goalscorer in Mark Warburton’s squad.
Kenny Miller has shown his age and does not fit Warburton’s system, and one of the manager’s priorities in the transfer window should be to sign a forward who brings pace and dynamism to an attack which looks out of sorts right now.
It will be hard to sign a goalscorer permanently in January due to how valuable they will be to the their current teams, and Warburton may have to raid the loan market again for signings.
And there is one club in the Premier League that he should look at, and one player in particular who could be perfect for his team in the second half of the campaign.
Jerome Sinclair currently players for Liverpool, and has been a member of their Under-21 squad this term, with two first team appearances to his name across his career.
He will not get into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team with the current striking options the head coach can call upon, and Sinclair needs to be playing first-team football to aid his development.
He is extremely highly rated in the Reds’ academy, and has been capped at both Under-16 and -17 level for England.
Extremely fast, and with impressive technical skills, Sinclair is best suited to the main striking role. However, he also can play as any of the front three, and will bring attacking versatility to Warburton’s team.
Sinclair progressed through Liverpool’s academy when Frank McParland was overseeing the academy system on Merseyside, and he could play a key role in bringing the youngster to Ibrox in his role as head of recruitment for the Scottish giants.
Rangers need to bring in a new forward, and there are few better available options than Sinclair right now.
