Rangers have to sign Davie Selke in January to allow Alfredo Morelos exit

Rangers are no longer reliant on Alfredo Morelos to score the majority of their goals now that Antonio Colak has arrived at Ibrox.

The Colombian had been untouchable since his arrival at the Light Blues but he is no longer the number one striker with Colak taking to Scottish football like a duck to water.

As a result, Morelos now seems likely to leave the club either in January or this summer when his contract expires and that would leave Giovanni van Bronckhorst in the same predicament he was this summer.

There was one player that the Gers attempted to sign late in the summer that would have solved all of that in the shape of Hertha Berlin target man Davie Selke, according to Sport Bild, 24 September.

The six-foot-four monster is yet to score in the Bundesliga after five matches but that is more down to his side’s poor start to the new campaign and the quality of their opponents so far.

He did score in his only DFB Pokal game so far this campaign and he could tear the Premiership to pieces if he were to join Rangers in January.

The Bears could wait until the summer and sign him on a free with his contract, like Morelos’, also ending at the conclusion of the season but the cut-price deal that could be on offer in the winter might be worth it.

It would fend off any other teams interested, first of all, and then allow Rangers to potentially get a small fee for Morelos too rather than losing him for nothing.

Alternatively, van Bronckhorst can finally put the Colombian behind him by signing Selke and look forward to having two exceptional yet different strikers to play with.
