According to the latest reports from the Scotsman, Rangers are monitoring the situation of Dundee United’s striker Louis Appere along with Celtic. The 20-year-old is being chased by the likes of Bournemouth, Leeds United and Norwich City as well.
The striker recently signed a new deal in October with the Scottish Championship outfit. His current contract will keep him with Dundee United until 2022. Appere has made 22 appearances in all competitions this season, and he has four goals and five assists to his name. It remains to be seen what kind of transfer fee the Scottish Championship outfit might demand for Appere.
With Dundee extending his deal not too long ago, it is fair to say that they are happy with what Appere is providing on the pitch. His goal scoring statistics doesn’t seem to be too eye-catching, but he is heavily involved in United’s build-up play.
Rangers have two in-form strikers in Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe. The Bears had lost the services of Kyle Lafferty in the summer but they never really went on to replace him. However, with Morelos and Defoe, Gerrard hasn’t had to look beyond them for goals upfront. Rangers have also got a young talented striker in Zak Rudden who is currently on loan with Plymouth Argyle.
What can the striker offer?
Appere’s ongoing season is his first campaign where he has featured regularly, and he made his debut in the league this season. It is fair to say that he has a long way to go before he can play for the likes of Rangers or Celtic. However, he is being seen as someone with top talent who can blossom into an impressive player with more experience.
The 20-year-old Scotsman is a versatile striker, and he can feature on the right flank and as an attacking midfielder. He is also known to be a hard worker off the ball, and even when he doesn’t score goals, he is invaluable to his current team right now.
What should Gerrard do?
Rangers can look to take a punt on him as he might develop into an outstanding option. However, the club shouldn’t expect miracles from him, and we would prefer that Rangers continue to monitor him in the Championship further instead of making a move for him in January. The striker needs more experience and playing time under his belt before he can take on the pressure of playing for a club like Rangers.
