In December, Sky Sports reported that Rangers were tracking Gillingham’s Tom Eaves ahead of this month’s window.
The 6ft 5′ target man averages a goal every other game in all competitions this season. His 14 strikes in League One leave him joint second in the division’s goal scoring charts.
Sunderland’s Josh Maja.
The 20-year-old is level on goals with Eaves and has a better strike rate. He has bagged a goal every 121 minutes, compared to Eaves’ every 135.
Maja’s contract is up in June and there are reportedly question marks over his desire to stay at the Stadium of Light.
Should Rangers already feel resigned to losing Alfredo Morelos or even, a game time starved Kyle Lafferty, in the summer, they could table a pre-contract offer for Maja.
The Gers look strong in forward areas at the minute, but there are sure to be bids for El Buffalo in the summer.
Even though Ryan Hardie will surely feature next campaign, there’s nothing wrong with planning ahead.
Maja’s future is uncertain, and he should, at least, be on the radar.
