‘Looks like a young Kyle Lafferty’ – Rangers fans mixed over apparent Ibrox target

The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been assessing their forward options ahead of next season after last season only saw two players hit double figures for goals, with Josh Windass and Alfredo Morelos both bagging 18 times. They could (via the Scottish Sun) be set to sign 21-year-old Umar Sadiq on-loan from Roma, fans can see more of Sadiq on Youtube.

The club will be looking to score more goals next season, the club bagged 76 goals last season in the Scottish Premier League, averaging two goals a game, however, they’ll be keen to improve on that this season and signing Umar Sadiq would go a long way in doing that. The young Nigerian striker spent last season out on-loan ay NAC Breda in the Eredivisie where he bagged five goals and three assists in 12 league games.

Next season it’s likely that if Sadiq doesn’t end up at Ibrox he will be going out on a temporary basis somewhere across Europe. He’s not quite up to the level that Roma are looking for yet, although he has the raw attributed to get to that level with the right coaching and amount of game time. The striker has pace and power and a deadly finish on him, meaning he could be honed into one of the world’s top finishers, first though, he’s got to convince the Gers that he’s the man they need to kick on.
