Gerrard could finally get main transfer target, but it’s not all good news for Rangers fans

Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern could be set to see one player come in, yet they could see another leave and will have to wait and see what the club decides.

New manager Steven Gerrard has been busy this summer having already secured five new additions already – however, he is thought to still want to bring more into the Light Blues. The Gers have been trying to get Martin Skrtel to join them but they failed to make an offer that was deemed acceptable by Fenerbahce.

However, reports in Turkish media outlet Yeniakit are claiming that the Super Lig side are interested in Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, and as such could be prepared to offer the Slovakia international and cash for the Colombian.

It is understood that Fenerbahce are keen to offload the 33-year-old from their wage bill, and Gerrard is thought to have made it a priority to bring him to Ibrox as he wants to build his squad around him.

And while a move for Skrtel could well be on, it’s not all good news for Rangers fans, as losing the influential Morelos would no doubt leave a gaping hole in their forward ranks ahead of the new season.

Landlord’s Verdict: It remains to be seen if whether Rangers will entertain the possibility of a deal, as they have recently completed the signing of Nikola Katic, with Connor Goldson joining him in the last few hours.

The Gers did reject offers for Morelos last winter, yet Gerrard could be tempted to accept a bid for him now, while the locals in the bar are split as to whether they should just go for a cash sum, or indeed take Skrtel as well.

Only time will tell whether a move involving one, both, or neither player does indeed take place.

Rangers fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
