Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt are considering a “big money bid” for Alfredo Morelos, according to the Daily Record.
Following the sales of Luka Jovic to Real Madrid (£54m – £38m to Frankfurt, £16m to Benfica) and Sebastien Haller to West Ham (£45m), the German side have raked a combined £83m. Now they must replace the players.
But should they see Alfredo Morelos as a replacement, how much might Rangers demand for the striker with the new season only two weeks away?
The Colombian striker has started this season as he finished the last – scoring goals. It’s four already for the season for Alfredo, albeit against European minnows St. Joseph’s.
His goalscoring prowess is as impressive as it is valuable and Rangers know it.
Steven Gerrard made a statement when he said it would take a big-money offer for Rangers to consider selling him.
But when you look at how influential Alfredo Morelos is to this Rangers side and the progress he could make this season, in my mind Rangers should demand more.
Could the Ibrox club really squeeze a £25m bid out of Eintracht Frankfurt for the player?
Well, it all comes down to whether the German side are really interested in Morelos’ services.
It’s not like they can’t afford it either.
