QPR In Fight With Fulham,Southamton Over Rangers Star

The forward is still unsure of where he will play football next season, making him one of the many players in the game whose contracts expire this summer.

The 31-year-old has had an eventful career up to this point, having moved to Oxford from West Brom in 2015 after failing to make the grade at The Hawthorns

After a productive tenure with the U’s, Roofe moved to Leeds United, where he had highs and lows before unexpectedly joining Anderlecht after an incredible season under Marcelo Bielsa.

He would only remain in Belgium for a year before returning to the UK with Rangers. He has since been a member of a team that has won three Scottish domestic titles, as well as playing for Glasgow when they advanced to the 2022 Europa League final.

Given his pedigree, it’s perhaps no surprise that clubs are already keeping tabs on Roofe, knowing that he will be available on a free transfer in the coming months.

It has been claimed that Southampton, QPR and Fulham are all keen on the player, although Saints’ interest may depend on whether they win promotion to the Premier League or not. If they do, they may feel there are other options out there.

Marti Cifuentes wants to assemble a club that can compete further up in the Championship, so it makes sense that QPR is interested, but they will need to put in some effort to remain up over the next several weeks.

While it appears that Roofe will wait until the conclusion of the season to make a choice, there may be competition for his signature.

Roofe has made it clear that he would be open to extending his stay at Rangers, but he also revealed last month that he doesn’t know whether he will be offered a deal.

From Rangers’ perspective, that’s understandable. They’re locked in a tight battle with Celtic for the title, and whoever wins the league will go straight into the Champions League group stage, benefiting from the finances that come with that, which will obviously alter their transfer plans.

In addition, Roofe has had a challenging season due to injuries; however, if he can demonstrate during the next six games that he is an important player for Phillipe Clement, that could be sufficient to secure a new deal.

Though he recently informed the Clyde Superscoreboard, as reported by Glasgow World, that the forward is sure to go on and questioned his fitness record over the years, former Rangers player Andy Halliday would be surprised if Roofe did stay at Ibrox.
