Vital Rangers picked out some potential striker options in the summer that would be useful replacements should we cash in on Alfredo Morelos, rating from local players like Kevin Nisbet to out of contract bargains from further afield.

One such player was Eddie Nketiah, the Arsenal youngster who shone at Ibrox in pre-season and looked as though he was going to have his breakthrough season with Mikel Arteta’s side, however, things haven’t worked out like that and, according to The Athletic, is now on the lookout for a new club:

“Eddie Nketiah has told Arsenal he wishes to leave the club when his current deal expires next summer, after turning down another contact extension.

“The England Under-21 international’s current deal expires at the end of the season and he is free to sign a pre-contract with another team in January.

“It is understood that there is no shortage of interest in Nketiah, with Borussia Monchengladbach among the German clubs monitoring his situation. French side Nice are weighing up a move, while there is also interest from Italy.

“Sources say Nketiah’s decision is not motivated by finances but over a lack of first-team opportunities.”

Valued at over £10million, somebody will get a bargain if they sign Nketiah on a pre-contract agreement and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be us. For all that Stewart Robertson has spoken in the past about Morelos being a £20m player, if an offer comes in for half of that we should bite their hand off given that there is a player available for free who could be an upgrade and make us even more money in the future.

If money isn’t the motivating factor it makes it an even easier decision for Ross Wilson to pick up the phone and ask the question as to how much he is wanting, we can offer what a lot of the other teams chasing him can’t – the opportunity to win trophies and to play in the Champions League, more importantly, the opportunity to play regular games.

The transfer market has changed and there is nobody that can tell me that if we signed Nketiah and Xavi Simon that the squad wouldn’t be improved, that it would be done without spending millions should be applauded not scoffed at, this is why we have an sporting director in place, to find these players and persuade them to come to Ibrox.

    These two youngsters sound like a bargain just waiting for rangers to come calling, an upgrade on el buffalo is an understatement. We could get these two youngsters for less than the selling price of Morelos, so it would be stupid on Rangers part not to at least try and sign them both, both out of contract in the summer, pre-contract agreement’s just waiting for us to grab a hold of, and it’s sounding like the Arsenal youngster would prefer Rangers being no stranger to Auchenhowie and Xavi the other young teenager know’s Rangers have their eye on him and being Dutch he would be welcome with open arms by his compatriots, IE, van Bronckhorst and Voss, not to mention a few others on the coaching team, so if we do sell Morelos, and I believe that’s a big if, because”I” believe he wants to show the new management team what he’s capable of and if we win the league and qualify for the Champions League he gets what he’s always wanted: to show his Ware’s at the biggest Club Competition in the world and get the move he’s always wanted, that is: a move to the English Premier League, the biggest, best and highest paying league in the world. Rangers also get what they want, a huge transfer fee, as let’s face it: Morelos has always kept his best football for the biggest stage, so far that’s been the Europa League, imagine WHAT HE could do on the biggest Club stage in the world, The “CHAMPION’S LEAGUE” we,I mean us Rangers fans know he deliberately keeps his best football for the European stage. After all he’s in the shop window and boy does he know it, so to sum up: if we can get these two youngsters for a free, it’s great business for be the club, hold on to el buffalo for another half season, as long as we we qualify for the CL, Morelos should get his big money move ( he’s always wanted ) for anything between £10-£20 million, it’s all good business for Rangers and should keep the club going for the few years to come, both off the park with the Morelos transfer fee, and on the the park up front with the two teenager’s. SO ALL IN ALL, THE FUTURE’S BRIGHT, THE FUTURE’S ORANGE 🍊!!! COME ON YOU RANGERS, TODAY, TOMORROW AND ALWAYS!!!
