After days of speculation regarding who Mark Warburton’s mystery attacking signing target was, news finally broke that Leicester City youth striker Joseph Dodoo was close to agreeing a deal for a switch north from the English Champions to the biggest Club in Scotland.
It was confirmed the 21-year old was at Murray Park for talks about a move to Mark Warburton’s rebuild job, with the Ghanian saying the following about such a transfer:
“I know a lot [about Rangers]. I used to watch them a lot when I was younger and obviously there’s the rivalry with Celtic. It’s a great club. Any player would be excited to play for a team like Rangers.”
The lad has trained with his potential new team mates already and Rangers face competition from his existing employers who have already offered him a new deal, but first-team football may prove to be too strong a lure for the 6ft striker.
So what would Rangers be getting with this capture if terms can be agreed? The following videos give more than a taste of his ability, and that first goal v Bury in his stunning hat trick in England’s League Cup suggests the lad is more than capable of coping with the SPL.

The forward also said:
“I’m a striker, I like to come short, come long, and goals and I can play either side (as a forward)”
We will see if this one gets over the line.
