Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will barely be able to keep up with their club’s recent signings under new boss Steven Gerrard, but they must secure a striker to build on last season’s third-placed finish.
With Kenny Miller leaving the club this summer and Eduardo Herrera only managing two goals in 24 appearances in all competitions last season, Gerrard will no doubt be looking to the transfer market in search of goals for his Rangers side.
The former Anfield legend has already used his connections at Liverpool to sign winger Ovie Ejaria on loan and reports suggest he could also be looking to bring Dominic Solanke north of the border on a similar deal.
Solanke managed just one goal and one assist in 21 games in the Premier League for Liverpool last season. However, he only started five of those games and has proven at youth level for both Chelsea and England, and also in the Belgian league for Vitesse Arnhem, that he knows where the back of the net is.
The 20-year-old is a strong, well-built player who would suit the physicality of the Scottish Premiership and could form a powerful partnership with 21-year-old striker Alfredo Morelos.
Morelos scored 18 goals in all competitions last season for Rangers after his move from HJK Helsinki and Solanke could be the perfect signing to ease the current goalscoring burden on the Colombian.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
