Glasgow giants Rangers are thought to be ready to join a quintet of English Football League clubs in the battle to sign Fleetwood Town striker Devante Cole according to a Football Insider source.

The 22-year-old Alderley Edge born hotshot is enjoying his most impressive campaign to date with the player having bagged 12 goals in 30 matches for the Cod Army so far this term.

The striker’s contract at Highbury Stadium is coming towards its expiry and it has been reported that English Football League clubs Birmingham City, Ipswich Town, Millwall, Reading and Sheffield United are all considering making moves for the youngster.

Latest reports have indicated that Rangers boss Graeme Murty is also an admirer of Cole and he could opt to submit a transfer offer for the player during the current transfer window as The Gers look to close the gap on Old Firm rivals Celtic who currently lead the Scottish Premiership table by eight points.

Cole started his career at Manchester City but moved to Bradford City after failing to make the grade with the English Premier League club. The striker’s goal ratio of one in four for The Bantams resulted in Fleetwood Town paying an undisclosed fee for his services two years ago.

The former England Under-19 international initially struggled to replicate his good goalscoring form on the Fylde coast however Cole has rediscovered his goalscoring touch this season as his list of admirers continues to grow.
