Anderlecht forward Kemar Roofe has been pictured posing with a Rangers jersey, amid reports that his move to Ibrox is very close to being finalised:

Reports in the Belgian media suggest the 27-year-old is set to move to the Light Blues with manager Steven Gerrard looking to bring in fresh faces up front.
The capture of Roofe would also suggest that Alfredo Morelos’s departure from Rangers is also close to being agreed.
The Gers were in negotiations with Lille last week but Gerrard confirmed that the sides were “nowhere near” to agreeing a transfer fee.
Whether there has been a breakthrough in talks with the Ligue One side or another club in recent days, it remains to be seen.
Morelos did start the 1-0 win against Aberdeen at the weekend, with the Colombian keeping his head down as speculation about his future increases.
Roofe, meanwhile, would be a statement signing for Rangers, having finished top scorer for Leeds in the Championship two seasons ago.
