Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos could still be team-mates even after leaving Rangers with reports suggesting that the Ibrox duo could both join Turkish giants Fenerbahce during the summer transfer window. 

Two of Rangers star players during their Scottish Premiership-winning season in 2020/21 under Steven Gerrard, both Kent and Morelos are due to become free-agents this summer. 

And Beale, assistant coach during those title celebrations two years ago, appears unwilling to stand in their way.

“We haven’t come forward with a contract offer for either of them,” Beale told the BBC a fortnight ago. 

“Both of them have been free to speak to other clubs for a while now. We have had the conversations, and we’re mutually in the same place about what should happen.”

With Rangers ripe for an overhaul, two of the club’s longest-serving players will be among those first to depart ahead of a hectic summer of incomings and outgoings. 

Kent has been heavily linked with a move to the Turkish top flight in recent weeks. And, according to Tuttomercatoweb, Fenerbahçe are indeed ‘serious’ about signing a player who became Rangers’ second-most expensive player when he arrived from Liverpool to the tune of £7 million. 

Kent, TMW add, is ‘close to an agreement’ with Fenerbahce despite rival interest from Serie A duo Udinese and Bologna. Kent may join a familiar face in Istanbul too. 

The Turkish Super Lig has proven itself to be a more than welcoming home for strikers down on their luck and in need of a fresh start. With that in mind, Alfredo Morelos could fit in nicely alongside Cenk Tosun, Fabio Borini, Mauro Icardi, Bafetimbi Gomis and co. 

Morelos has just 11 goals in 44 games to show from his final season in Glasgow. Fellow striker Antonio Colak – an awkward fit for Beale’s system – is also facing an uncertain future with Swansea City’s Joel Piroe, Bordeaux’s Josh Maja and Blackpool’s Jerry Yates among the potential replacements.
