With Steven Gerrard beginning life as Rangers boss on Friday, one area of the team he will have to sort is the team’s strikers.

With Jason Cummings having returned to Nottingham Forest with no permanent deal as yet agreed, and constant speculation over Alfredo Morelos’ future, Gerrard could well be looking for a new forward.

One player he should more than consider, and indeed make a move for, is former Hibernian loan striker Florian Kanberi.

The 23-year-old made a huge impact for the Easter Road side, scoring nine goals in 14 appearances, including a goal in the 5-5 draw against the Gers earlier this month.

Aside from Morelos the Gers struggled for goals last season, and with the amount of chances the Ibrox side create Kamberi could well help himself to 20 goals for the Light Blues.

He is available to sign after leaving Hibernian and returning to Grasshoppers, with the Scottish Sun reporting that Sunderland were put off making a move for the hitman by a £1.7million pricetag.

Hibernian have the option to make the deal permanent, but unless they sell John McGinn they will struggle to raise that money.

That sort of money is no issue for the Gers though, and Kamberi is a player that Gerrard really should be looking at.

At the price Grasshoppers are wanting for him, it represents a bargain, and he has experience of playing in Scotland so it isn’t a gamble.

The signing of Kamberi would be a significant start to the Gerrard revolution.
