Should Glasgow Rangers consider Will Grigg as Alfredo Morelos replacement?

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers might need a replacement for Alfredo Morelos this summer.

There is every chance that Alfredo Morelos could leave Rangers in the summer.

The 21-year-old hitman is attracting attention from clubs South of the border and Rangers this week slapped a £10 million asking price on his head, according to Herald Scotland.

That figure could be a whole lot more realistic in the summer if Morelos - who has five Premiership goals in his last seven outings, and 13 in 22 starts following his £1 million switch from HJK Helsinki - continues scoring for the rest of the season.

Despite what Rangers get for him, the Ibrox side are going to need a new striker to replace him and should they be looking at Will Grigg?

Under Mark Warburton in 2016, the Gers were 6/4 favourites to sign him at one point during the summer after scoring 28 goals for Wigan Athletic during the 2015-16 campaign, inspiring them to promotion.

The 26-year-old wasn't as prolific in the Championship, but he has 15 goals for the Latics this season - including two against West Ham United in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round shock - and Rangers should seriously consider bringing him to Glasgow if Morelos winds up leaving.

The Northern Irish hitman is old enough to have a decent amount of experience in England, but young enough to have a fair few goal-laden seasons left in him and surely Rangers fans would love him at Ibrox, if they need a replacement for the South American.
