Steven Gerrard, Manager of Rangers looks on prior to the UEFA Europa League Group G match between Rangers and Villarreal CF at Ibrox Stadium on November 29, 2018 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke is in demand, with Rangers and Premier League duo Huddersfield Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers all linked.

The race to sign Liverpool youngster Dominic Solanke is hotting up and Rangers are allegedly at the front of the queue.

Steven Gerrard has been tipped to raid his former side for the seldom-seen striker since the start of last summer and, according to the Express, Solanke is now Rangers’ number one target heading into the January transfer window.

 

It is believed that Gerrard is desperate to sign a new striker after Alfredo Morelos was sent off for the third time this season in Wednesday’s 1-0 home defeat to Aberdeen. Kyle Lafferty has not scored since September, while Umar Sadiq is likely to see his loan spell from Roma cancelled.

But, the Express adds, Rangers are not alone in targeting the prolific England U21 international.

The report claims that Wolverhampton Wanderers are also keen to sign Solanke when the January transfer window opens.

The former Chelsea youngster, who has one cap for the senior England side, would offer a much needed back-up option to the overworked Raul Jimenez.

Huddersfield Town are also mentioned by the Express and manager David Wagner will be hoping that his close friendship with Jurgen Klopp can swing the deal his way.
