Manager Paul Lambert has already suggested he isn’t keen to make several loan signings this summer, therefore his potential targets could be young players out of favour elsewhere and with potential to grow.
Scotland has often been an attractive market for Championship and League One clubs to poach potential bargains, and Ipswich found one in 2017 in former Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn.
The 29-year-old found himself out of favour at Ibrox and joined Ipswich on a two-year deal. He netted 16 league goals in his debut campaign at Portman Road, prompting a switch to Derby County last summer.
Dodoo is another player who started his career in England, coming through the Leicester City youth team, before moving to Rangers in a £250,000 deal in 2016.
The 25-year-old, however, has since returned to have loan spells at Charlton Athletic and Blackpool. During this past season at Blackpool, he showed plenty of promise, with Tangerines manager Terry McPhillips describing him as phenomenal following a 3-0 win over Burton Albion.
Ipswich need another wide player or two this summer. Dodoo has had an up-and-down career so far, yet he still has his best years ahead of him and manager Paul Lambert has a knack of getting the best out of players.
New signing James Norwood will need service from wide areas if he is to replicate his 32-goal haul during Tranmere Rovers’ League Two promotion, and Dodoo could help supply that.
Rangers would probably be happy to offload him, and for Ipswich he would represent a cheap gamble with potentially big rewards.
