Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have stepped up their interest in signing Alfredo Morelos, according to a report, after sending sporting director Fredi Bobic to watch him in action.

According to the Daily Record, Bobic watched Morelos against Hibs on Friday night in the 1-1 draw at Easter Road.

The 28-goal striker has been subject to constant speculation over his future and signed a one-year extension to his Ibrox contract a few days ago.

Frankfurt are fifth in the German top flight and are pushing for a Champions League spot for next season.

The Germans are also in the last-16 of the Europa League, drawing with Inter Milan in the first leg.

Gers managing director Stewart Robertson has confirmed that the Gers would be looking for a similar fee to the £20million paid to Celtic for striker Moussa Dembele by Lyon last summer.

If the Germans do want to sign Morelos this summer then they will need to smash the £7million they paid to make French striker Sebastien Haller their most expensive signing ever.

Rangers are under no pressure to sell their star man but know that everybody has a price.

The money recouped would allow Gerrard to make substantial changes to his side – but losing the Colombian would leave a massive hole in the Rangers starting XI.
