Rangers exit for Kemar Roofe with interest high must open door for further Ibrox arrivals
Kemar Roofe leaving Rangers this summer could open the door for a further attacking arrival to come in at Ibrox before the end of the window.
The Sun’s Alan Nixon has revealed on his Patreon page (24 July) that Sheffield Wednesday have now emerged as contenders for the 29-year-old striker, in addition to various others in England.
Rangers’ transfer business appears to be reaching its conclusion, with the imminent arrival of Ridvan Yilmaz set to be the Gers final piece of business this summer according to manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, via Joshua Barrie on Twitter.
However, it has also been suggested by the Rangers review journalist that any potential exit could well open the door for a new signing to come through the door at Ibrox.
If the 29-year-old was to leave the club this summer it would be essential for the Rangers boss to find an adequate replacement.
Antonio Colak will most likely be the Gers’ main man for the upcoming season, but a competitive backup is a must if the Gers want to replicate their success of the 2021/22 campaign.
Rangers aren’t blessed with immense depth in the striking department at present so it would be a risk to go into the season without Roofe, considering the fitness and future of Alfredo Morelos are up in the air.
If the Gers summer business is now complete it will be slightly disappointing for the Ibrox faithful.
After the big-money departure of Calvin Bassey, some fans would’ve been expecting the incoming fee to be reinvested back into the squad more fully.
The Gers have certainly been busy in the transfer market but only time will tell if the new arrivals at Ibrox will adequately replace the big names that have left the club.
