Scottish Premier League side Rangers have joined a number of Sky Bet Championship clubs in the pursuit of Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott, according to Sky Sports.

Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest are all reported to have a keen interest in the Posh front man, with Derby County also rumoured to be looking to bring Marriott to the club.

His impressive season in Sky Bet League One saw him win the golden boot. Marriott scored an impressive 27 league goals in his debut season for Peterborough United, having joined the club from fourth tier Luton Town last summer for an undisclosed fee.

His performances saw him nominated for Sky Bet League One player of the year, and he also earned a place in the Team of the Year for his division.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony confirmed that he had turned down a number of bids for Marriott in January, but has recently admitted it is going to be near impossible to keep hold of his star man after the season he had.

The 23-year-old striker told Sky Sports last month that his ambitions were to play as high as he possibly could.
