Glasgow Rangers have been linked with a move for Leeds United forward Kemar Roofe – in a potential transfer that would suit both the Gers and the player.
Steven Gerrard would appear to want 26-year-old Roofe to lead the Gers front line, but only if they can sell Alfredo Morelos first and for the right money.
The Leeds striker has scored a total of 29 goals in 73 games in their last two Championship seasons, and that is considered a good return in a difficult league to score in.
Does Roofe like the thought of playing in European football and winning silverware with Rangers, rather than hanging around for another year in Leeds?
If he has a dream of playing in the Premier League, then he can do that via signing and performing well for Rangers, before being transferred down.
Celtic have achieved the same result with many players.
Perhaps moving from the Championship direct to the Premier League is too big a gap to breach, whereas moving from a major Scottish club seems to work out better.
Leeds are in an unbelievably difficult league to get out of and Roofe has more chance with Rangers to win honours and play in an attacking side that regularly prevails.
Here is the road for Roofe to take next season. Score 30 goals or more to win the SPFL title with Rangers, then move to the Premiership for £10 million with a good signing on fee.
Whilst playing in the Europa League, he will put himself in Europe’s shop window to progress his career and the CV at the same time.
A stand-out season with Rangers in Europe will attract bigger sides in the Premier League, as he maybe isn’t too far away from plying his trade at a higher level.
I rest my case.
