Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson has spoken about the possibility of holding onto Alfredo Morelos beyond this season, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
World football is currently shrouded in uncertainty with most activity halted as a result of the global health crisis.
Few have clarity about when the game will resume, with rules for a transfer window as yet not established.
While it’s clear that every club will take a financial hit during the crisis, Wilson insists the Gers won’t be selling key men for low fees to help balance the books and claims a shortened or poor market could ensure Morelos stays put for a while longer.
“My phone goes every day with lots of agents and the discussion is the same,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun. “The bottom line is we don’t know where the market will be, but there is no intention to sell anyone on the cheap.”
“When you don’t know what anything’s going to look like, everything is on the table. It could well be the case that that is the situation with Alfredo [that he stays].
“Until this market opens and starts to move, whether you are Rangers or Borussia Moenchengladbach or Crystal Palace, nobody is going to know what the landscape is.”
Most Rangers supporters will be hoping to hold onto Morelos for the 2020/21 season, whatever form that campaign takes, and so will be excited by Wilson’s comments.
The striker has had major disciplinary issues across his time in Glasgow and has struggled to produce in Old Firms, but has been lethal in European competition and boasts an impressive overall tally of 29 club goals this season.
The 23-year-old Colombia international has been linked with a variety of clubs over the past year but is contracted at Ibrox until 2023.
Morelos is one of just two senior strikers tied to the Gers beyond the end of this season, alongside veteran Jermain Defoe.
