Should Rangers make loan bid for Toni Martinez in January?

Glasgow Rangers arguably need to bolster their attacking ranks, so perhaps they should look to bring Toni Martinez to Ibrox.

A general view of Ibrox Stadium is seen ahead of the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between Scotland and Georgia at Ibrox Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Though Kenny Miller marked his return to the Rangers side with an impressive brace in their win over Hearts at the weekend, it is surely fair to say that the Gers would be wise to strengthen their striker options in January.

Alfredo Morelos has been extremely impressive - both in terms of goals and his all-round play - but there is arguably little depth behind them, with Eduardo Herrera yet to really ignite since arriving at Ibrox and Ryan Hardie unproven in the Scottish Premiership.

With that in mind, the Rangers manager - whoever that may be - should perhaps take note of a Premier League youngster, who is currently making a massive impact for his side's under-23 team.

Toni Martinez has been brilliant for West Ham's youngsters this term, scoring eight goals in just nine games for the Hammers, including six in his last four games.

Despite his form, the 20-year-old is yet to represent Slaven Bilic's side, so it would hardly be a surprise if the striker deemed a loan move to be in his best interests come January if he is still scoring for fun but not getting the first-team recognition. 

Given that there would be little risk involved in a deal, Rangers simply have to put themselves in the running if Martinez does become available in January. 

The youngster appears to have that lethal touch in front of goal. And if he is given the chance to move away, he would surely leave the London Stadium looking to prove a point to his parent club ahead of his return.

And Rangers should consider giving him that platform to prove a point to West Ham if Bilic does decide to let him leave on a temporary basis.
