With the Colombia international player apparently on his way out of Ibrox, the club is eyeing a number of options to replace him.

Rangers are already trying to find potential replacements for striker Alfredo Morelos, Goal understands.

The 23-year-old seven-time capped Colombia international forward has netted 29 times for the Ibrox club this season, including 14 in their Europa League campaign.

Despite discipline problems, which have seen him twice sent off this season and five times last term, in addition to become the subject of rebuke from supervisor Steven Gerrard, there are a number of big clubs thought to be keeping tabs on the striker.

Rangers have gone on record to indicate that they need at £35 million for the hitman, although critics have poured scorn on that valuation, with club legend Barry Ferguson saying in March that £10m could be a more realistic appraisal.

Although they are unlikely to have the ability to recoup the sum that they publicly want, the Glasgow side appear to be gearing up to lose their top scorer in the summer, as they’re tracking several options to replace their present ace.

Liverpool ahead Rhian Brewster, on loan from Swansea, is among five men on their shortlist, with Scotland international striker Lawrence Shankland, the leading scorer in the Championship with Dundee United, a further option.

Looking out of Britain, the Gers are following the progress of Senegal striker Mohamed Buya Turay, who is currently on the books of Sint-Truiden at Belgium, in addition to Bordeaux’s Nigeria ahead Josh Maja and Adrian Grbic, an Austria Under-21 international plying his trade in France’s second tier with Clermont.

Rangers are currently out of action as Scottish football is locked down as a result of ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with no sign when play may commence again.

They’ve made strong progress in the Europa League, reaching the round of 16 in which they trail Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 after the first leg. With UEFA competitions also on hold, it is not yet known when, or indeed if Gerrard will have the chance to take his side to Germany to finish the tie.
