Would Josh Maja be a good signing for Glasgow Rangers?
The transfer links with Maja come at the same time that one of Steven Gerrard’s current strikers is being linked with a move away from Ibrox. Sky Sports have claimed that Alfredo Morelos, the club’s top scorer last season with 29 goals, has agreed personal terms with Lille, who are now trying to negotiate a fee for the 24-year-old.
These ‘Gers fans on Twitter welcomed the transfer links with Maja, particularly with speculation over the future of Morelos:
Probably nonsense but that would be some signing https://t.co/Br38fb3saO

Ngl. He’d be a good signing. Tore it up for Sunderland (I know it was League 1) but think he’d be a quality signing https://t.co/L7FvCHf6Rl

The fee I think will be much lower but this would be outstanding business. https://t.co/p4mWxUXjx9
