A Colombian journalist has revealed to Rangers News just how highly Alfredo Morelos is valued in his homeland.
Transfer talk is never far from the Colombian, with Sky Sports reporting that Dortmund have joined the race to sign the striker.
Steven Gerrard remains determined to keep him. But should he go, Juan Camilo Romero Gómez, a journalist who works with Gol Caracol, thinks Rangers will be set to benefit economically from any sale.
“Rangers can economically earn a lot with Morelos,” says Juan. “With the current market of passes, Morelos is a player that should be between 20 and 30 million euros.
But really, he is a striker who could relatively get out of a big club.”
This echoes the statements of Rangers Managing Director Stewart Robertson. Speaking at the ORSA convention, he said

If Alfredo Morelos is to leave Ibrox, it looks like it’ll be for nothing less than £20m. And no wonder. A physical, hardworking presence up front, he scores goals for fun and at 22, still has plenty of room to grow.
If Rangers get anywhere near this amount – and they can hold out for it given Morelos signed a four year deal
It’s been the right move for all parties.
“He is a young, growing player who must undoubtedly make the leap to a more competitive league to really know how far he can go. But it has a great future.”
Juan Camilo Romero Gomez works as a journalist for Gol Caracol, the media outlet which covers the Colombian National Team and is a part of the wider Caracol TV.
