Rangers: Van Bronckhorst set to prioritise Alfredo Morelos deal at Ibrox

A big Rangers transfer claim has been made over Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s plans for Ibrox centre-forward Alfredo Morelos…

What’s the talk?

Transfer insider Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Rangers are set to put a fresh deal for Morelos at the top of their to-do list, with his current terms at Ibrox set to expire in the summer of 2023.

O’Rourke told GIVEMESPORT: “Morelos will probably be the priority because he’s probably the one who’s going to get you the biggest fee if he is to be sold right now. And if he was to sign a new contract, that would obviously enhance his price tag as well going forwards for Rangers.

“So, I think Morelos probably will be the priority if they were to keep anybody right now because he is the out and out goalscorer in that team for Rangers.”

Supporters will be buzzing

This claim will surely leave the supporters buzzing as they will want the club to be in the best possible position to keep hold of Morelos.

Whilst, as O’Rourke explains, a new contract will increase his value in the market it also gives them a bigger chance of retaining him.

Will Morelos leave this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

They will not be forced to cash in on the striker this summer as they would not have the looming prospect of him being able to sign a pre-contract with a foreign team in January 2023, which means that they would only sell if the right offer came in for him.

The attacker has produced 19 goals and eight assists in all competitions for the Gers this season. He has proven himself to be a consistent performer at the top end of the pitch as he has chipped in with goal contributions on a regular basis in the number nine role.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

In the Premiership this season, James Tavernier (7.73) is the only outfield player for Rangers with a higher average SofaScore rating than Morelos (7.32). He has been one of Gio van Bronckhorst’s top performers in the division and that is why fans will be delighted with the club wanting to tie him down to a new deal.

The supporters will surely want to see the Colombian in action for the Gers again next season and agreeing on a contract extension appears to be the best way of going about keeping him. It will allay any fears of him leaving on a free transfer next summer and put Wilson in a strong position to reject offers for his services.
