Steven Gerrard suggests Sadiq Umar deal is close

Steven Gerrard suggests Sadiq Umar deal is close

The final signing could be a little harder to predict. Sadiq and Alfredo Morelos are the only recognised centre forwards wanted by Gerrard, given that Eduardo Herrera is primed for the exit, and another striker could be targeted.

The Mali global joined the Gers on a season-long loan deal on Tuesday, arriving from French outfit Angers and thus becoming the eighth signing of the summer for Steven Gerrard.

New signing Lassana Coulibaly was anxious he was the victim of a prank call when Rangers boss Steven Gerrard phoned to discuss a move to Ibrox.

Sadiq, 21, has struggled to pin down a regular shirt since linking up with AS Roma from Serie B side Spezia in 2015.

Coulibaly is excited to play under Gerrard but admitted he was not sure if it was a joke or not. Having broken into Roma's squad aged just 18, he's also scored twice for them in six senior appearances.

"When my agent said that Gerrard is the head coach, I said, OK, no problem, and then I was happy to come and join this team".

In doing so, he beats a record of five songs held by the Beatles - a record that has stood since 1964 - according to Billboard . It racked up 745.92 million US online plays in its first week, the highest streaming debut for any artist ever.

"To be honest the plan was to stay at Roma this season but when Steven Gerrard calls you can't say no". When he was at Liverpool, I grew up watching him.

Coulibaly, a Mali global, could still be added to Gerrard's Europa League squad with Gers set to begin their qualifying campaign on Thursday night against Macedonian side Shkupi.

Allan McGregor, Jon Flanagan, Scott Arfield, Jamie Murphy, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Ovie Ejaria all joined earlier in the window.

"He told me about the team, even though I know about Rangers - the most successful team in the world".

He smiled: "I don't like to say anything about myself but I am a hardworking player who always wants to help the team".
