In Focus: £9m is an excellent fee for Morelos that Rangers can’t afford to turn down

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers have received yet another offer for striker Alfredo Morelos, this time in the region of an incredible £9m.

What’s the story?

The January transfer window may be over in Europe, but in China it appears to just be hotting up, with Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe refusing to give up on making a move for Rangers’ Colombian striker.

That’s according to The Scottish Sun, who say that the Light Blues have rejected a fourth bid for the 21-year-old.

The paper also reckon that teams from South America are now interested in his talents with two clubs making contact with Rangers recently about a potential move for the player.

However, the Ibrox side are refusing to do business for him before the summer, says the report.

Should they sell?

There’s a certainly an argument for Rangers taking the money now and saying goodbye to their Colombian attacker.

The reported £9m fee is a lot of money in Scottish football standards and although the Light Blues apparently don’t need it from a financial perspective, it’s a fee that could be trans-formative to their transfer business this summer.

If Morelos were to leave mid-season, it wouldn’t be ideal, but with Jason Cummings now at the club it also wouldn’t be the end of the world. The former Hibs man is more than capable of helping them compete for the Scottish Cup and push for a second place finish in the Scottish Premiership.

It’s likely that Morelos, who has scored 15 goals in all competitions this term, is at the peak of his value at Rangers right now and the club should do the business and take the money.
