Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been the subject of fresh links to West Ham this week, even if the reports seriously undervalue the player.
The Ibrox club have made it clear that they won’t deal at anything less than their asking price. Stewart Robertson has previously said it’ll take Dembele dollars to shift the Colombian firebrand.
So when separate reports are linking him with the Olympic Stadium for the measly fees of £4m [West Ham Way podcast on Phoenix FM (Wednesday 17th July)] and £10m [Daily Star], you can’t blame Rangers fans for laughing off the interest.
#WestHam fans thinking that they can get Morelos for £5m 😂😂😂😂

I like west ham and Haller is a good player. I'm not out to disrespect either.
But to say Morelos is worth £5m and would only be a squad player with you is just silly.

See it anyone (West Ham fans) are stupid enough to think 1. Morelos is only worth £5m and 2. That they’ll get him for any less than £17m, they have zero clue whatsoever about football

There’s more chance of Pete Dunham winning a scrap against Tommy than there is of West Ham getting Morelos for 5m.

The West Ham fan who said Morelos is only worth £5m must be smacking himself in the face now eh.. #ElBufalo

So I'm guessing West Ham are buying Alfredo Morelos' left big toe for that 5 million then after tonight

Hope the west ham fans saw the rangers game tonight. Now they will know why Alfredo Morelos is worth £15-20 million

The Colombian could’ve been representing his country at the Copa America but his absence in the Rangers side through suspension cost him a place at the tournament.
Rangers fans clearly believe their star striker is worth considerably more than the measly numbers being touted by the reports linking him to West Ham.
Morelos is a lethal finisher, something which you can carry on to any level, and is an almost guaranteed goalscorer.
More than that, he’s a very intelligent footballer.
The Colombian international holds the ball up incredibly well, is a sublime link-up player and he is never scared to take an opponent on.
Alfredo’s discipline is often used as a stick to beat him with, but the reality is the person who that has let down most is himself.
Maybe El Bufalo needs to prove he’s over that side of his game before people start talking up his transfer value?
