One of Glasgow Rangers star performers is 22-year-old Alfredo Morelos, who has never hidden his desire to play in the English Premier League.
The Gers striker made his debut for Colombia in the 2-1 win over Venezuela and assisted with the winning goal, and was an unused sub against Argentina during the international berak.
I sincerely hope Morelos does not move this season, but next year would probably suit Rangers, who will benefit from the massive financial windfall.
I would also be delighted if 25-year-old Connor Goldson could reach the same heights. He was the Gers’ best player until Allan McGregor started pulling off regular world class saves.
Next season the Rangers centre-half should be club captain, and if he continues to improve at Rangers, some EPL clubs will soon be interested in signing him.
The Ibrox giants signed the 6’ 3” centre half for £3m from Brighton and Goldson could realistically be sold for £10m, if he can maintain his fitness and prove his consistency over a few seasons.
I have high hopes for current Croatian internationalist Borna Barisic achieving a similar offer from a top English side. The fee was between £1.5 – £2m and is definitely a class performer.
The versatile 6’ 1” Barisic can play left of a back three, left back or wing back. He would be an asset to any team, with his passing, tackling and dangerous crosses – all first class.
Nikola Katic is only 21 and the 6’ 4” defender has been a real find by Steven Gerrard. He is not as polished as Goldson, but he is an excellent young Croatian U21 player with huge potential.
Eros Grezda is rated by his Albanian manager as ‘World Class’ – we’ll soon see! If he is, he will be worth selling after a few years’ service at Ibrox.
Glenn Middleton is only 18 and has played 18 times for Scotland U17’s, 12 games for U19’s and already has four matches for the U21’s – quite an achievement for such a young talented guy.
Rangers coaches are excited about his potential and has been upgraded as a first team player this season. He has terrific pace and his crossing is superb. He will be the ‘Gers super sub this year.
