Should Rangers make a move for Kemar Roofe?

Scottish giants Rangers have been prolific in targeting talented players from the English Football League under Mark Warburton, and continue to do so this summer.

The Gers have already snapped up talented Accrington Stanley attacker Josh Windass, who struck 15 goals for the League One side in 30 games, also providing five assists.

Now a window of opportunity may have opened to snap up another prolific attacker, Kemar Roofe, who scored 17 and provided 10 assists for Oxford United, while also netting three goals in the FA Cup.

The former West Bromwich Albion trainee is reportedly available for around £2 million, according to The Yorkshire Post, with Leeds United hoping to snap him up.

Club owner Massimo Cellino indicated he is hopeful of a deal being done, but board room issues are delaying a deal, making it impossible to conclude until at least next week, The Mail reported.

Rangers would do well to add Roofe, 23, to their attack alongside Windass, and play the pair either side of last season's top goalscorer Martyn Waghorn in a 4-3-3.

This would give the side an arguably more dangerous forward line than Celtic, and the chance to go and win titles for Rangers and play in Europe should appeal to Roofe, while Leeds will find it tough to get into the Championship promotion race.

Roofe is a player who has the x-factor, the ability to produce moments of magic and light up the crowd. At Rangers he could potentially become their biggest star, and forge a reputation to make him a household name around Europe, with the profile of the league set to increase thanks to their return.

The fee is an affordable one for the Gers, and if Mark Warburton wants to add another attacker to the squad, he may not get a better chance, but will have to act fast before Leeds get their man.
