Gue-sung Cho ticks a lot of the boxes that Michael Beale is looking for in a striker for Rangers to replace Alfredo Morelos.

Agreeing impressing during the World Cup, it seemed as if the 25-year old South Korea international would head to Europe for the next stage of his career.

Injury has blunted Gue-sung Cho’s season so far but looking at his data suggests that, for Rangers, he very similar stylistic match to the departing El Bufalo.

Cho was the subject of a £2.6m bid in January but the Jeounbuk Hyundai forward stayed put.

Now, with Michael Beale looking to add more firepower to his attack, Son’s international teammate would be a bargain option.

Looking at Geu-sung Cho’s numbers, Rangers would be acquiring a player who would fit seamlessly to our current system and style of play.

What would Gue-sung Cho offer Rangers?

Cho, is very much a jack of all striking trades in that he can link play, compete with opposition defenders, set up teammates and score goals.

Injury may have prevented him from playing more minutes this season but his goal scoring exploits of the last few years are encouraging and he would be expected to be just as prolific in Scotland.

Who Michael Beale brings in to replace £33,000 per week Alfredo Morelos is the key transfer business this summer.

Whether it is with one or two different players is irrelevant but Rangers need consistency both in terms of availability and performance.

A player who held his own against top level defenders in the World Cup wouldn’t be a bad place to start and, with the fee mentioned, Rangers could land themselves a bargain.
