Rangers’ rivals Aberdeen have slapped a £4m price tag on star striker Sam Cosgrove amid reported interest from Stoke City.

The big striker is only 23 but has bagged a very impressive 18 goals in 22 games for the Dons this season.

Naturally, the 6f3 Englishman has attracted interest from down south with Michael O’Neill’s Stoke side said to be leading the charge.

According to the Scottish Sun, Derek McInnes and the Pittodrie bosses have slapped a £4m price tag on the striker.

It feels like a reasonable price for a player who has led the line so effectively for the Dons and who is still young enough to develop his game elsewhere.

It is certainly more reasonable than the £10m reportedly attached to much-maligned Scotland defender Scott McKenna.

Whilst Rangers have undoubtedly the most talented striker in Scotland in Morelos, Cosgrove has proven his ability to lead the line in the same league.

Alfredo Morelos might be staying at Rangers until the summer at least, but the day may well come that the Ibrox side needs to replace the Colombian.

Should Steven Gerrard and co. keep tabs on the Aberdeen striker, or should Rangers be aiming higher?

Even if the Ibrox club was interested, would Aberdeen ever want to deal with Rangers over one of their star men?
