As reported by The Daily Mail, Rangers are one of a number of teams eyeing a move for West Bromwich Albion talent Tyler Roberts.
Having already brought many signings to the club this month, Rangers have delighted supporters with their January business, but there’s still time to add one or two more to Graeme Murty’s squad.
One man they’re said to be interested in is West Bromwich Albion teenager Tyler Roberts, who is available to leave the club at the end of the season for a £300,000 compensation fee due to his contract expiring.
That’s according to The Daily Mail, who say the likes of Leeds and AC Milan are also interested in his signature, making the competition clearly fierce.
Still just 18 years of age, Roberts already has over 50 professional appearances to his name after loan spells at League One sides Oxford United, Shrewsbury Town and currently Walsall.
This season he’s scored five goals in 17 league appearances for the Saddlers, also contributing four assists. That’s a fair record for a player so young and a potential that could be further enhanced with regular football at Ibrox.
With Kenny Miller injured, Eduardo Herrera flopping and Josh Windass not a natural striker, the Light Blues are lacking options and landing Roberts could give the squad a big boost.
It would also follow a similar signing model Celtic have employed in recent years, taking players like Moussa Dembele north of the border on compensation deals, only to see value rise to be sold on for a profit later on.
It’s a model that could prove successful for Rangers too.
