Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that he could bring another striker to the club this summer - even if Leicester City's Joe Dodoo signs.

The Gers boss has added to his goalkeeper options by bringing in former Scotland international Matt Gilks, whilst the versatile Clint Hill and Lee Hodson have added depth in defence.

With midfielder Matt Crooks, Jordan Rossiter, Joey Barton, Josh Windass and Niko Kranjcar signed to strengthen the midfield, Warburton has done a great job of adding to his squad this summer - but one area he's yet to address is in attack.

Given that Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller hit a combined 49 goals last season, the need for more firepower may not be seen as huge for Rangers, but Warburton is keen to have options at his disposal ahead of the club's return to the Scottish Premiership.

A host of strikers have been linked with moves to Ibrox, but Warburton appears to be closing in on the signature of Leicester City youngster Joe Dodoo.

The 21-year-old has come up through the ranks at Leicester and showed his talent last season with a hat-trick againtst Bury in the Capital One Cup - which happened to be his first-team debut for the Foxes.

Pacey forward Dodoo can play out wide or up front, and manager Warburton confirmed to BBC Sport earlier today that a move to sign Dodoo is close to completion, with the player out of contract at Leicester and therefore able to make the move to Ibrox in a cut-price compensation deal.

However, that might not stop Warburton from targeting another striker. The Gers manager told The Scottish Sun that, even if Dodoo signs, he still wants to bring in another goalscorer to add competition for places across the pitch, suggesting that Dodoo may well be one for the future rather than immediate competition for leading goalscorer Waghorn.

"We still need one or two more, even if we get Dodoo — possibly a defender and another striker," said Warburton. "All over the pitch we have competition for places now, which wasn’t the case last season. We’re still looking and we’ll react to opportunities. We maybe need one more striker," he added.
