Eight clubs – four in the Premier League, three in La Liga and one in Serie A – have been linked with a move for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
Over the last couples of days coverage and comment on the Colombian’s future has emerged in newspapers across the UK and Europe.
In one piece from the Spanish version of Goal.com, they claim that the 29-goal Ibrox talisman is wanted by clubs across three of Europe’s biggest leagues.
The report claims that Leicester City, Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are all interested in the services of the 23-year-old hitman.
All four of these clubs have previously been linked to Alfredo Morelos at differing stages of his Rangers career, with El Bufalo previously stating his dream is to play in the Premier League.
In Spain, Goal believes that Sevilla, Valencia and late-stage Champions League regulars Atletico Madrid are also interested in the services of the Colombian international.
Atleti were mooted with making a €15m move for the player with some reports even suggesting reported pre-contract Ibrox target Rodrigo Riquelme could be convinced to move the other way to sweeten the deal [La Razon].
Italian giants Inter Milan are the other club being linked with a summer transfer move for the boisterous forward.
The report also claims that Rangers and Steven Gerrard value Morelos at closer to €40m with Goal.com claiming Madrid’s reported €15m interest is closer to his market valuation.
Rangers chairman Dave King said the club wouldn’t sell Morelos for even £40m [Scottish Sun] in the January transfer window such was his importance to the side.
But Morelos’ dramatic downturn in form at the beginning of 2020 and behavioural issues behind the scenes suggest moving the striker on might not be the worst thing for all parties.
Still, it’d break your heart to see the wee man leave.
