Glasgow Rangers do not want to see their star striker Alfredo Morelos leave the Ibrox club this summer but in case he departs, Steven Gerrard has a readymade replacement being lined up.
Morelos scored 18 goals in all competitions for Rangers in his debut season, and enjoyed his best-ever campaign last term under Steven Gerrard where he scored 30 goals in all competitions.
He is showing good form already, having scored a hattrick in Rangers’ Europa League qualifier against St Joseph’s.
The report claims that Rangers have identified Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe as a potential option if Morelos leaves the Gers this summer.
Roofe enjoyed a fantastic 2018/19 campaign under Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds where he scored 15 goals in all competitions.
The 26-year-old is yet to sign a new contract at Leeds, and the Yorkshire club could be tempted to cash in on him if the value is right.
Roofe has improved on his all-round game under Bielsa and he would be a terrific signing for Rangers.
The striker suffered an ankle injury during pre-season and will miss the start of the next season after being ruled out for four weeks.
