Reported Rangers target Kemar Roofe linked with £7m Anderlecht move

Reported Rangers target and Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe has been linked with a move to Belgian outfit Anderlecht.
According to the Daily Mail, the Vincent Kompany led side are interested in securing the services of the Jamaican forward to the tune of £7m.
The athletic Roofe, 26, has a year left on his deal at Elland Road and the Mail report claims he also has an offer from Leeds on the table.

Rangers were reportedly said to be lining up Kemar Roofe as a potential replacement for Alfredo Morelos [Scottish Sun], should the Colombian have left the club.
But with
Morelos reportedly turning down a move to Hebei China Fortune [Sky Sports News], it appears the striker is set to stay at Ibrox for another year.
Despite that, Roofe was seen by many as a solid option for Rangers as he can play across the front three with his athleticism and driving runs providing something we do not currently have.
Certainly at £7m Rangers would be priced out of any move for the forward anyway.

And should Anderlecht come in for Roofe, the striker may find the lure of moving to the continent too strong.

The Leeds United number seven hit 15 goals in 34 games last season as the Yorkshire club narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
Anderlecht are now managed by former Manchester City and Belgium captain Vincent Kompany, who will perform his duties as a player/manager this season.
