The startling report out of Scotland reveals that Gerrard is set to raid his former club for the summer capture of Solanke, as he kick-starts his revamp of Scottish Premier League (SPL) club.
The 20-year old Solanke, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea in the summer of 2017, was accorded just five starts in 21 appearances in the English Premier League last term, with his only goal coming on the final day against Brighton.
