Alfredo Morelos must be sold this summer, but his 29 goals this season would take some replacing. Andre Gray would step into his shoes and tear-up the Scottish Premiership if Rangers managed to sign him.
The Herald claimed the Gers are attempting to do just that as summer approaches. The Watford striker is far too good for the Scottish league, so if they can lure him to Glasgow it could make the difference in the title race next season.
He’s scored seven goals and assisted two in 27 games for Watford in the Premier League this season. If that’s what he can do in arguably the most competitive league in the world, imagine what he could do for Rangers in Scotland. He could become an Ibrox hero within a year.
The Englishman’s rated at £13.5m on Transfermarkt, so he certainly wouldn’t be cheap. That’s usually a fee Rangers wouldn’t be able to afford, particularly as they need to add quality all over the pitch to challenge Celtic next season. The money raised from Morelos’ sale can cover this though.
He signed for Watford for £18.36m and his reputation would excite Ibrox no end. The 27-year-old is in his prime, and he’d relish being the main man for such a massive club. He hasn’t had that privilege at Watford, so he could be tempted to Scotland.
If they can convince him to come, it’d be a game-changer for the title race. He’d strike fear in any Scottish Premiership centre-back, and that’d certainly worry their arch-rivals into taking them seriously as title contenders next season.
