£6.3m-rated CF in, Morelos out: Rangers’ dream 18/19 attack under Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard’s first transfer window in charge of Rangers has been an incredibly hectic one so far as he attempts to stamp his own personal mark on the club ahead of the new season, but there is reason to suggest that he has not finished building his perfect attack just yet.

Rangers have already completed the signings of 10 new players this summer ahead of a huge season for Gerrard on his debut campaign in senior management. The new players will be hoping to impress the manager before the season gets underway with plenty of individuals fighting for a place in the starting eleven.

The arrival of Umar Sadiq should provide Alfredo Morelos with some fresh competition at the spearhead of the attack next season, but the Nigerian’s limited experience in European football could ultimately count against him next season.

Time is running out for Gerrard to make further additions to his squad, but he should certainly be in the market for another centre-forward this summer if he has genuine ambitions of challenging Celtic for  the SPFL title.

How exactly Gerrard will set up his side next season remains to be seen, although early indications suggest he will line up with a 4-5-1 formation without the ball which will turn into a 4-3-3 in possession, so the two wide players will form a crucial part of the attack next season.

With that being said, here’s what Rangers’ dream attacking front-three could look like next season…
