According to the Daily Mail, Rangers are likely to pay Leicester City £250,000 for striker Joe Dodoo.

Mark Warburton has been extremely busy this summer, bringing in no fewer than eight new signings to Ibrox.

The attack has been somewhat neglected though, as he has improved the midfield with signigns such as Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar, as well as adding defensive recruits like Lee Hodson, Clint Hill and Matt Crooks.

Now the Gers boss is looking to boost his attacking options to provide competition for Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller.

The man he has identified is Leicester City youngster Joe Dodoo, with the Daily Mail reporting he is in negotiations over a permanent switch to the club.

The Daily Mail also reports that he will sign a four-year deal at the club and as he is just 21-years-old, is likely to cost them around £250,000 in compensation.

His contract is set to expire with the Premier League champions this summer and the player is set to snub their offers in search of first team football with Mark Warburton’s team.

The reported price is the same sort of fee that they ended up paying Liverpool when Jordon Rossiter made the move earlier to Ibrox earlier in the window.
