Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was pictured in jovial mood as the Gers made their way to Holland ahead of the Europa League QR3 tie with Eredivisie side Willem II.

The striker has reportedly been the subject of increased interest from Ligue 1 side Lille with the Colombian the subject of mixed reports concerning a bid for his services.

Despite the backdrop of reported £18.3m interest, the talismanic forward was pictured gesturing to the camera as the Rangers squad boarded a plane to the continent.

This is a far cry from the Morelos who was dropped by Rangers boss Steven Gerrard for a downturn in attitude amid a reported £16.25m bid from the French side.

Morelos was dropped for the club’s 2-0 win over Kilmarnock on the 22nd of August and only reappeared for the team in the 4-0 win over Dundee United three weeks later.

The Colombian is back in amongst the goals with three strikes in his last two appearances as interest reportedly ramps up across Europe.

Reports in South America had claimed that Lille had already lodged an £18.3m (€20m) bid for the 24-year-old, with Rangers yet to reject the bid.

Pipe Sierra suggested the Ibrox striker has been the subject of an £18.3m (€20m) bid from Lille and also claimed Fiorentina and West Brom have made their interest “official”.

The Scottish Sun have also claimed that the French outfit are lining up one final “take-it-or-leave-it” offer of £18m for the striker before the transfer window shuts.
