Rangers manager Steven Gerrard should think about making a move for Brighton starlet Aaron Connolly in January.
The Gers are a little light up top and only really have Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty to call on, with Umar Sadiq having failed to live up to expectation.
As reported by The Scotsman recently, the Anfield legend is indeed keen to add another striker to his squad in the next window.
Although Rangers have hardly struggled to score goals this season, the feeling is that there needs to be more cover for Morelos, who has scored the bulk of them this season.
His disciplinary record is poor, and there’s always the chance he could get injured.
With that in mind, Gerrard should consider moving to add cover to his squad in the form of Brighton youngster Connolly.
Player of the month nominee
Connolly has enjoyed a terrific season for the south coast club in PL2 so far this term.
He’s bagged 11 goals in the league, with six coming in the month of November which has subsequently earned him a player of the month nomination.
On top of that, Republic of Ireland U19 international Connolly has also scored five goals in just three EFL Trophy matches.
Connolly has demonstrated an impressive eye for goal; since joining the club in 2016, he’s played 36 times for the U23s and scored 28 goals.
Gerrard will likely already have his targets but perhaps Connolly is someone he could take a look at.
Surely Brighton would want for him to go out on loan and get some experience at senior level, as well as he is currently playing for the U23s.
It’s fairly commonplace for Irish players to ply their trade in Scotland, and Gerrard could be an excellent mentor to him.
