Rangers interested in Uche Ikpeazu

The Old Firm defeat to Celtic will have effectively ended Rangers’ season, as they have nothing except for pride to really play for.

In the grand scheme of things, it has not been a bad campaign for Steven Gerrard, however, he will need to make improvements in the summer to make sure that they are capable of challenging for silverware, with the striking department an area that will need addressing.

What’s the News?

According to a report by The Sun, Rangers are interested in Heart of Midlothian forward Uche Ikpeazu.

The striker has been in rather good form for Craig Levein’s side this season, having hit six goals in his 20 appearances so far since joining from League Two outfit Cambridge United last summer on a free transfer.

It is claimed that he would be available for a fee of around £1million.

However, the Light Blues could have a real battle on their hands to try and sign him, as Celtic, Hull City and Cardiff City are also thought to be interested in the powerful forward.

The Verdict:

Ikpeazu could the ideal man for Rangers to bring to Ibrox in the summer in an attempt to bolster their attacking line.

The Nigerian appears to have taken well to Scottish Premiership football in his first season with Hearts and is likely only to improve in the future as he gets more minutes under his belt.

If the club does sell Alfredo Morelos in the summer for a significant transfer fee, then the £1m for Ikpeazu would not appear to be too expensive and one that could be considered as a relatively low-risk addition.

However, whether he would be able to replace the Colombian significantly will raise a number of eyebrows at Ibrox, whilst the likes of Kyle Lafferty haven’t exactly worked out as Gerrard would have hoped for initially.
