According to the Scottish Sun, the Ibrox club have earmarked Roofe as the perfect replacement for Alfredo Morelos should the Colombian end up being sold during the current transfer window, after the 26-year-old finished Leeds’ top-scorer with a decent 14 goals in the English Championship last season.
Roofe has just 12 months remaining on his contract, which could force the Elland Road club’s hand to sell this summer, but Sky Sports reporter White has taken to Twitter to play down speculation this afternoon:
So, it seems Rangers aren’t perhaps as close to pulling off what would be a pretty impressive signing, but do you think Roofe would be an exciting addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad?
And could the Gers realistically afford him?
