A big Rangers transfer claim has emerged on Alfredo Morelos and his future in Glasgow…
Transfer insider Pete O’Rourke has tipped the Colombian to be the subject of interest from clubs south of the border this summer. The attacker is set to miss the rest of the season through injury and O’Rourke believes that the Gers fans may not see him in action again.
He told GIVEMESPORT: “It could be a real possibility that we have seen the last of Morelos in a Rangers shirt. We’ve had speculation about his future every transfer window since he’s been at the club.
“He’s scored goals again in Europe, which is going to attract interest from teams in the Premier League and across Europe, and he will not be short of offers in the summer because of his goalscoring record.”
This update will surely leave the Ibrox head coach scared, as losing Morelos would be a gigantic blow to his side ahead of next season.
The prolific goalscorer has been crucial to the Gers this term and his exit would take a huge attacking threat away from the team.
In the current Premiership campaign prior to his injury, he scored 11 goals and provided seven assists in 25 starts whilst averaging a sublime SofaScore rating of 7.32. He created two chances per game and nine ‘big chances’ for his team-mates as he showed that he can be a regular scorer and provider from the number nine position.
Earlier this year, Van Bronckhorst hailed the striker’s intelligence on the pitch as he said: “I think Morelos is doing really well in finding the moments to be available as a target man but also keep his threat in the 18-yard box, because that is where he is very dangerous. I think his knowledge of when to come or when to stay away is getting better and better.”
Morelos has also excelled in the Europa League, in which he scored four goals in eight starts to help the Gers on their way through the competition, with Van Bronckhorst’s men now set to face RB Leipzig in the first leg of the semi-finals this week.
His superb statistics domestically and in Europe illustrate how important he has been for Rangers and why losing him would leave a significant hole in the squad. There is no guarantee that Ross Wilson will be able to adequately replace him, and that is why the Dutch head coach will now be scrambling to convince the Colombian to stay at Ibrox.
