With Steven Gerrard hot on the heels of both Bournemouth’s Jermaine Defoe and Swansea City’s Oliver McBurnie, Rangers’ striking options looks set to dramatically change this summer.
Reports are that Jason Cummings’ hopes of becoming a Rangers player are hanging by a thread at best, and while there has been conversation about it, it has not moved further along due to Rangers holding fire based on further outgoings and incomings.
In short, it appears Cummings is not a top priority and the possibility of him becoming permanent depends on who actually comes in and who leaves.
And that brings us onto Alfredo Morelos – Gerrard, it seems, is ruthless. He wants players who fight for the shirt, and while Morelos’ team play outside the box is good, his attitude isn’t and it has been evident to even the most ardent fans of the Colombian that his heart isn’t in Govan.
In short, Rangers are listening to offers for the 21-year old.
With Eduardo Herrera facing the exit door too, Stevie Ger really appears to be ready to completely overhaul Rangers’ striking options, and chances are high that a completely new forward line will be at Ibrox next season.
Jermaine Defoe and Oliver McBurnie are both heavily mooted for the switch, while Liverpool’s wing talent Harry Wilson has been close for a long time as well.
It could well be Cummings, Morelos and Herrera out, with Defoe, McBurnie and Wilson in.
One thing missing from that lot is a big strong reliable target man up top – but then how many teams actually play with those these days?
Whatever Rangers end up with, it appears it’ll be one heck of an upgrade.
