Michael Beale has spoken about maybe adding one or two players to his Rangers squad and, if the sale of Glen Kamara is confirmed, either Luis Palma or Denis Bouanga should be targeted.

After losing Ryan Kent and Fashion Sakala, more pace is needed in the attack, that Rabbi Matondo has returned to the starting line up says it all after being deemed surplus to requirements.

The money from Kamara leaving has to be invested into an area where Rangers clearly need to strengthen and Luis Palma and Denis Bouanga make a lot of sense.

Rangers should renew interest in Luis Palma and Denis Bouanga

Palma seemed certain to be the first signing of the summer and even got the Fabrizio Romano treatment shortly after the transfer window opened.

A rumoured fee in the region of £4m didn’t seem excessive for the young Honduran international and his start to the season suggests that he is only getting better too.

With two goals and three assists in his first five games he is already off and running and producing the sort of numbers that we hoped to see from Sam Lammers.

The other option Rangers should consider is a previous target too.

Denis Bouanga was linked before he went to MLS and signed for Los Angeles FC.

Depending on how negotiations went for Jose Cifuentes, we already have a connection there and should at least be asking the question.

A theme of this summer’s business has been players that Beale has worked with before or watched for a long time and he was at the club when Bouanga was mentioned as a St Etienne player.

With 18 goals and six assists in 24 appearances, the 28-year old Gabon international also offers exactly the sort of numbers we want from our front three and has proven that we should have made more of an efffort.

If the reported £5.5m is indeed the money that Kamara is bringing in, Beale has to get a large percentage to sign what has been sorely missed in the attack.

Rangers have done the due diligence on Palma and Bouaga in the past and taking another look makes a lot of sense.

We can all see it, hopefully the board can too.
