Leeds United forward Kemar Roofe is top of Rangers’ transfer wish list to replace the potentially departing Alfredo Morelos, as reported by The Scottish Sun.
The paper say that the Colombian is nearing a £10m exit and Director of Football Mark Allen has identified Roofe as the best option, with the player said to be available for £5m.
Pl>ymaker FC’s Theo Ogden found two rebelious Leeds fans in the home end at Loftus Road in QPR’s 2-1 FA Cup win. Find out what happened next in the video below…
Roofe ended last season as Leeds’ top goalscorer, finding the net on 15 occasions as Marcelo Bielsa’s outfit narrowly missed out on promotion to the top-flight following defeat to Derby County in the play-off semi-finals.
If Leeds are to embark on another bid to goup next season then they’ll need to keep their best players and the 26-year-old certainly falls into that category.
However, with less than a year left on his contract there are business realities when it comes to a potential departure, with this transfer window perhaps one of the last opportunities to cash in on the player.
Leeds fans don’t want to see him leave on the cheap though, with many taking to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…

£5 million for what is really our No.1 striker? Nahhh try much harder lads, although they probably felt it worth a punt considering our potential sale of Jansson
