Report: Rangers draw up short-list of Alfredo Morelos replacements

According to a report from Goal, Rangers have already begun drawing up a list of potential replacements for their striker, Alfredo Morelos.

Morelos is a wanted man around Europe thanks to a stunning season that has seen him fire in 29 goals in all competitions thus far.

Despite a couple of discipline problems during the campaign, Morelos has been largely impressive under the guidance of Steven Gerrard.

And it looks like the Gers could be consigned to losing Morelos. A number of replacements, including Josh Maja and Lawrence Shankland, have apparently been identified to replace the striker.

 

Morelos would, of course, be a huge loss at Ibrox. However, if a big fee can be brought in to the club, Steven Gerrard could well be tempted to do business.

Make no mistake, replacing 29 goals in your team is no easy task. Steven Gerrard will be well aware he faces a big problem if the club does sell Morelos.

Furthermore, he’ll also want to ensure he gets the maximum price for his talisman. Only then, would it make sense for Rangers to do business.

Whoever comes in to replace Morelos (if he goes), faces a mammoth job. To score just shy of 30 goals with a chunk of the season left is a remarkable feat.

Many players score goals in Scotland. However, few really take it by storm like Morelos has.

Any replacement who does come in for the Colombian would be under immediate pressure to step into his shoes.
