Rangers considered making a move for Peterborough striker Jack Marriott but took the enquiry no further after being given his price, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun reports that the Gers enquired about the 23-year-old’s availability, but were put off by the £5million price tag that has been slapped on his head.
Marriott scored 33 goals for the League One side in all competitions last season, after joining Posh on a four year deal from Luton Town.
Football Insider verdict
The fact that the Gers were interested in signing Jack Marriott in the first place shows that Mark Allen and Steven Gerrard must have a new striker at the top of their signing priorities for the rest of the summer. The Gers only have one real goalscorer on their books at the moment, Alfredo Morelos, and there has got to be a concern over his future at the club after all the rumours last season, that linked him with a move to China. Jason Cummings seems unlikely to return to Ibrox after his loan spell last season, so it is no surprise that the Gers are looking for another forward to help lead the line for next season. Finding another striker is very important to any Gers title challenge for next season, and it is significant that they are looking to buy and not loan a player for that position, as Allen and Gerrard look to make additions to their Ibrox revolution going forward.
