According to the Daily Mail, Rangers have stepped up their interest in bringing Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw to Glasgow this summer.

The Gers have added four midfielders in Matt Crooks, Josh Windass, Jordan Rossiter and Joey Barton, but manager Mark Warburton must now look to add players in other areas.

Despite seeing Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller contribute with a combined 49 goals this past season, Warburton may be looking to bring in a new striker to boost his attack ahead of Rangers' return to the Scottish Premiership.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Rangers are keen to land Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw, and have now stepped up their interest in signing him.

The Welsh international, 23, joined the Saddlers from Shrewsbury Town back in 2014, and has hit 20 goals in each season for Walsall, becoming one of the Football League's most dangerous strikers.

With just one year left on his contract, Bradshaw is widely expected to leave Walsall this summer, with the Saddlers looking for a transfer fee in the region of £750,000.

That would be a considerable outlay for Rangers, but Bradshaw has proven himself in League One, displaying pace to run in behind defences as well as the ability to play up front on his own and lead the line.

However, Rangers aren't the only club keen, as the report cites interest from Birmingham City, Preston North End, Reading, Millwall and Burton Albion - meaning that whilst Rangers have stepped up their interest in Bradshaw, they may face a real battle to land him.
