Rangers have not given up on signing Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke this summer, with fresh reports suggesting that Steven Gerrard is confident of bringing the player to Ibrox before the end of the transfer window.

The Mirror’s English deadline day live page (Thursday 9th August, 05:31am) delivered the bombshell, months after the player was first linked with a move to Scotland.

The paper reckon it would be a loan basis only considering his status in the Liverpool squad, but having struggled to get regular starts under Jurgen Klopp, a temporary switch to Rangers could be great for his confidence.

Solanke has scored just one competitive goal for Liverpool, which came on the final day of the English Premier League season against Brighton, but has been a consistently used substitute for Klopp’s outfit, suggesting he has the quality to make an impact in the Scottish Premiership.

At 6ft 2in tall, he would provide a different kind of threat in the final third to Alfredo Morelos, giving Steven Gerrard different options for different occasions.

Morelos has started the season excellently, but Solanke could add real depth and quality to the position with just Umar Sadiq currently available to step in.

Rangers are clearly on the hunt for another striker having been linked with moves for two Bosnian international forwards this week, but Solanke could be the known quantity that Gerrard wants in the final weeks of the window.

  • I’d rather see molares with a permanent partner.than another.lonee. this guy hasn’t got a proven goalscoring pedigree so know

  • Eric. Solanke is one of the most promising young English strikers. If he was a year or two older he would defo be in the English lineup. He is tipped to smash the prem league n take it by storm. With celtic possibly getting man city’s new wonder kid striker who will score goals and add to celtic already potent strike force. We need this young lad to give us exactly what it says different options and I’m confident he can score goals as is promised!

  • I think rangers have enough young players in the first team squad already and need a couple of experienced guys. All these loan players’ parent clubs want them to play regularly, that’s why they are out on loan in the first place.

  • #Eric I am In support of you wee need and upgrade not solanke !! even if wee give him the whole of this season to play we will not score up to ten goals !! we need a good striker with a good goal record (1goal – 2games) that can give us up to 15-20 goals!! with a lot of pace and abilities to take on defenders #LetsGo #Ger

  • Solanke would be a great addition to our team, remember this is scottish football and he would be head and shoulders above anything up here. We need to get someone in coz wot if Morrellos gets injured or sent off again, the only cover is Umar Sadiq and I don’t think he’s the answer, he’s still a bit raw for me. W. A. T. P.
