Even with reported arrival of 21-year-old, Rangers must add to their attacking ranks


It seems that Rangers are set to make another addition to their ranks of strikers, with the arrival of Umar Sadiq from Roma on a year long loan deal.

The Scottish Sun reports that the Gers have made a six figure offer to the Serie A side to land the 21-year-old, and Steven Gerrard is confident of the Gers bringing in the Nigerian in the next seven says.

That means that the Gers would have two forwards at the club should Sadiq join, the new arrival and Alfredo Morelos.

Whilst Morelos is already a proven goalscorer and Sadiq is highly-rated, two forwards are not enough to get the Gers back to the top of the Scottish game, and Gerrard will be well aware of that.

Josh Windass is more than capable of adding goals to the side, but he is not a striker, and it seems that Jason Cummings will not be returning to Ibrox anytime soon.

Gerrard should look to bring in an experienced third striker to the club, to compliment the duo of Sadiq and Morelos.

A target man would give the Gers an option they do not currently have, and Gerrard and Gers director of football must scour their contacts to find a player who would give the Gers that extra dimension that could bring them one step closer to the top of the Scottish Premiership.
