Fulham are poised to make a January move for Martyn Waghorn as the Rangers striker seems certain to be on his way out of Ibrox in the new year.
A report in this morning’s Scottish Sun claims that the forward is ready to move on in the January window after being disappointed at the lack of a new contract offer from the Scottish giants. The 26 year-old clarified the club’s position in a meeting at Rangers’ Murray Park training ground with manager Mark Warburton and his representatives have already made his availability known to a number of Championship clubs, with Fulham and Bristol City reportedly showing early interest.
The former Wigan striker, who scored 28 goals as Rangers won promotion to the Scottish top flight last season, is open to a loan or permanent move having failed to get a wage increase or even be offered new terms unlike several of his team-mates. Waghorn has scored eight goals in fourteen first-team appearances this season, although only one of those strikes has come in the league.
The 5ft 10in forward moved to Scotland alongside former Wigan team-mate James Tavernier on a free transfer having scored eight times in 38 league appearances at the DW Stadium. Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is certain to seek to supplement his striking options when the transfer window re-opens having signed Chris Martin on loan from Derby late in the August window, with just Matt Smith and Cauley Woodrow as back up.
