Rangers are preparing for life after Alfredo Morelos with a potential move for Troyes striker Iké Ugbo, 24, after the Canada international hitman’s career continued to flourish in Ligue 1 following a strong period in Belgium and who manager Michael Beale knows well from his Chelsea days.
The £6M-rated talisman has 7 in 37 in France, which is reasonable for a relegation-threatened side, while his time in the Jupiler Pro yielded 19 in 50, also a solid return. He has never scored for his country in 8 appearances.
As his contract is still very much in play, running till 2026, this is one that would set Rangers back a chunk of change for sure, and the following sums up what he’d bring to the club:
So he’s a striker who lacks a little bit of power on the ball to retain possession, but every other department of his game is strong and pretty well developed.
He’s not scoring for fun in France, but for a side doomed with the drop, that’s not surprising. He is a solid performer who could well be a shrewd investment for Rangers if Michael Beale is serious about capturing the Canada man.
