According to recent reports, Rangers might be getting ready to bid farewell to one of their star players. Columbian striker Alfredo Morelos apparently has his eyes set on a move to the Premier League after just one season at Ibrox.
The 21 year old striker has been one of the Rangers’ star performers with 17 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions which has made everyone in his native country and Scotland sit up and take notice. He joined the Rangers in June from HJK Helsinki and has exceeded all expectations in the one season he has spent at the Scottish capital.
The Columbian target man was at the centre of a huge transfer saga in the January transfer window. Rangers blatantly refused to sell the young striker despite receiving some huge bids from the Orient.
It was reported by the Scottish Sun that the fourth bid which came in from Beijing Renhe was worth £9 million and was still rejected.
Just after this issue ended, Morelos signed a new and improved contract with the Rangers. It was understood that he wanted a new contract as a reward for his performances. He was initially one of the lowest paid members of the squad.
Despite all this, it is all but certain that he will leave come summer. The only condition that the Rangers have is that the bid should be greater than the one they received from China.
If all goes according to plan, Morelos is all set to become Rangers’ most expensive sale of all time. The record is currently held by Allan Hutton when he was sold to Tottenham in the summer of 2008 for £9 million.
