Cristhian Stuani gets relegated with Girona – should Rangers pounce?

Uruguay striker Cristhian Stuani might be 32 years old, but he’s proving sometimes your best years come in your twilight.
The powerful big striker has been in superb form for Girona this season, scoring 20 goals in 34 matches. That includes 19 in La Liga.
But it hasn’t been enough to stop the Spanish outfit being relegated from the country’s top-flight. The big striker could well now move on, but could Rangers have an eye on a deal?

The Ibrox club is on the hunt for a burly, physical striker which offers something different from that Steven Gerrard currently has. Kyle Lafferty, who was supposed to be that option, has failed to impress and could well be moved in the summer.
Any potential move for Stuani could well come down to finances. Whilst there is absolutely no suggestion Rangers are interested, they could be priced out of even flirting with a move.
According to the Nottinghamshire Post, Nottingham Forest are interested in the former Middlesbrough striker. They also claim he has a release clause of €7m (£6.1m).
If Girona wants all of it – and for a 32-year-old no less – then it would represent a real risk by Rangers. Should the club receive the £20m they want for Alfredo Morelos, then Cristhian Stuani might be a short-term solution to replacing the Colombian.

But the player will have virtually no resale value and there’s no guarantee he’d be a success. There’s also no guarantee Morelos will be sold.
If that’s the case, perhaps Rangers should turn their attention to this more affordable Eastern European option instead?
