Rangers in the race to sign striker from Belgium

Gerrard

There is only one goal for Rangers and Steven Gerrard at Ibrox next season.

That, of course, is to usurp Celtic and finally regain the Scottish Premiership.

It's been a long hard slog for the Gers and before the new year set in, they looked like they had a good chance of challenging the Hoops until the end.

However, it wasn't to be.

Ultimately, Gerrard's men slipped too far behind their rivals and finished the campaign 13 points adrift. 

A big part of that was Alfredo Morelos.

So often a pillar of composure in front of goal, his consistency dropped off to an alarming degree.

The Colombian found the net 29 times in all competitions but quite remarkably, only one of those goals came in 2020.

Therefore, they'll need some help, particularly in attacking areas, if they're to stop Celtic winning ten in a row.

Perhaps their new transfer target could be the answer. Reports this week from Fotomac (via Sport Witness) claimed that the Light Blues were interested in signing Nigerian forward Terem Moffi.

The striker currently plays for KV Kortrijk in the top tier of Belgian football.

Although Rangers are interested in the 21-year-old, there is a hotly contested race to acquire his signature.

It's reported that Galatasaray, Anderlecht, Saint Etienne and Stade Reims in Ligue 1 are also chasing Moffi.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

At just 21, Moffi is a player with plenty of potential and is used to hitting the back of the net on a regular basis.

Although he isn't the 30 goal a season striker Morelos is, having someone like the Nigerian could be valuable in terms of adding the extra goals they need to get over the line in matches.

Moffi initially made a name for himself in Lithuanian football, scoring 20 goals in 31 matches for FK Riteriai.

However, he proved his adaptability by moving to Belgium and continuing to thrive.

His four goals in seven Jupiler Pro League matches this term tells the story of someone who isn't fazed by a change of scenery.

Playing in front of a packed crowd at Ibrox would be vastly different but his short career in football so far has seemingly been plain sailing.

He's scored goals wherever he's been and that should fill Gerrard with confidence ahead of a possible summer transfer.
