Rangers star at centre of transfer tussle alongside £20m ex-Celtic man

Fenerbahce are looking to reignite transfer interest in Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos; but former Celtic star Moussa Dembele is their number one target.

Ibrox striker Alfie, 26, has been pictured back on the beach sunning himself up in home country Colombia as club football takes a break for the international period.

But as Ibrox fans raise an eyebrow regarding the snaps, with Rangers toiling on and off the park and Alfredo Morelos yet to sign a new deal, the player’s situation has seemingly piqued the interest of Fenerbahce.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, Alfredo Morelos is on a three-man shortlist for Fenerbahce as they look to strengthen their forward line this summer.

The Colombian international may also be available for a knockdown price given that Rangers are yet to negotiate a new deal with the player, who is out contract in the summer.

Quite remarkably, that could mean that Rangers will lose their record European goalscorer for nothing come the summer and given the player’s poor form as of late, shipping Alfie out in January might not be a terrible idea.

But whilst Fenerbahce – long-term suitors of the Colombian forward – reportedly look at Alfredo Morelos, it’s former Celtic striker Moussa Dembele who tops their wishlist.

According to the report, Fenerbahce are also eyeing the French striker who is in the last year of his deal with Lyon, whom he moved to in a £20m deal back in 2018.

And if all else fails and Fenerbahce fail to attract either Alfedo Morelos or Moussa Dembele, then there is always Atalanta forward Luis Muriel.

Morelos’ fellow Colombian is the third and final name on the apparent shortlist of the Turkish club and the links come ahead of what promises to be an interesting transfer window at Rangers.

Speaking of the January window, struggling Rangers have been backed to spend big come the start of next year.
