Why Rangers should sign Moussa Konate before the deadline
According to a report in Scottish Sun, Scottish giants Rangers have made a €10m bid to sign Amiens striker Moussa Konate before the Scottish transfer window deadline day, which is on the 2nd of September.
Steven Gerrard’s men have been linked with a move for the striker, chiefly because they are ready to face bids coming in for their star Alfredo Morelos, whose future at the Ibrox seems very uncertain. (h/t Scottish Sun)
Gers manager have made it clear that he would be powerless to stop the outgoing of Morelos (h/t Scottish Sun). If the inevitable happens, then the club should be ready to sign a replacement very soon.
As a result, they have made a bid to sign Konate, who still has two years remaining in his contract with Amiens. However, the Ligue 1 side’s mettle will be tested with this offer from one of the giants of Scottish football.
Below, we analyse the 26-year-old’s game and conclude why he possesses the ability to replace Morelos in the Rangers team:
Konate has the potential to be a Morelos replacement
Moussa Konate is a versatile forward who prefers to play as a striker but is comfortable operating on either wing if required.
The Senegal international, who has 12 senior goals for the national team in 32 appearances, played 28 games for Amiens in all competitions last season, scoring seven goals and assisting a further two.
In terms of his attributes, Konate possesses great pace to burn and stretch the opposition defences. He is a good dribbler of the ball, is physically strong against centre-backs and is a decent finisher in the final third.
It has to be said that Rangers are put into a situation where they have to find a replacement for Alfredo Morelos, then the 26-year-old could be an ideal option for them going forward.

Thus, we can conclude by saying that the Gers are right in making a bid to sign Moussa Konate from Amiens. They should offer a deal to the Senegal forward, once Morelos is closing on his departure from the Ibrox.
