Steven Gerrard and Mark Allan are looking around Europe for a good striker who will not cost too much, in case Glasgow Rangers are forced to sell 23-year-old Alfredo Morelos.

Centre forwards already playing in the English Premier or Championship are far too expensive and priced out of the market for Rangers to buy.

A number of European teams are being linked with 25-year-old Paul Onuachu – the lofty Nigerian forward, who plays for Rangers’ next Europa League opponents FC Midtjylland.  

Whilst the Gers are doing their homework by watching the Danish side’s strength’s and weaknesses, what’s to stop them making an offer for Onuachu?

Would it be unethical or too cheeky for Rangers to try and buy him before the two games?

He would probably be an ideal striker partner for Jermain Defoe in a new Rangers attacking force.

The Scottish Sun claim that three top Belgian sides – Anderlecht, Club Brugge and Genk – are considering signing the player, so why not Rangers as well?

With his knowledge of the Scandinavian market, Gers coach Peter Lovenkrands should know about Onuachu and advise Gerrard whether he’s worth taking a chance with.

Onuachu should be facing Rangers for Danish club, FC Midtjylland on Thursday 8 and 15 August, if the Light Blues get through to the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

In 2015 he was loaned to Danish First Division side, Vejle BK, and played 13 games, scoring five goals, before returning to FC Midtjylland.

In season 2016-17 Onuachu played in 44 matches in Denmark’s Superliga and cup games, scoring a very creditable 22 goals.

The following season he played in 30 games and scored 14, and last season he completed 33 ties with 18 goals, helping FC Midtjylland to win the National Cup.

In season 2017-18, FC Midtjylland won the league for the second time in their history.

In March Onuachu scored his first goal for Nigeria in his debut game. It was scored in 10 seconds, and is the fastest ever goal scored for Nigeria.

With Rangers possibly looking for a new centre forward, the African could well be an exciting option.
