Steven Gerrard targets 25-year old EPL striker; reports

Press reports today claim Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is interested in a move for Liverpool’s Danny Ings, having previously dismissed Dominic Solanke.

The 25 year old Anfield striker has been on Rangers’ radar for a considerable period, but this is the first time he has been tangibly mentioned since Gerrard took the reins, and the former Burnley man, who has one cap for England, would be a fine signing if Rangers’ boss could persuade him his future is in Govan.

Rangers are on the definite lookout for further striking talent with, currently, only Alfredo Morelos as the single recognised one on the books – the deal to bring Roma’s Umar Sadiq is said to be ongoing, but Ings would qualify as a marquee signing given his career record.

Ings, who managed 43 in 142 appearances at top flight EPL cracks Burnley, is a former team mate of Scott Arfield who may well have spoken to his manager about the Winchester born hitman, and the Canadian international will know what Ings can bring to Rangers if he can stay fit, with injury history certainly being a bit of a concern.

More as we get it.
