A report in the Daily Record, suggests that French side, Nice, want Alfredo Morelos.
They currently sit eighth in Ligue 1, but are set to lose Mario Balotelli during this transfer window.

As the controversial Italian moves on, the club’s manager, Patrick Vieira, has reportedly identified Morelos as his preferred replacement.

What’s more, it’s suggested that they are willing to offer around £8 million for the Colombian.
That’s almost three times his current, questionable, Transfermarkt valuation of £2.70 million.

Such a significant offer would test Rangers’ resolve.
The striker has been tipped for big things and has previously spoken of his desire to play elsewhere.
Yet, both Steven Gerrard and Mark Allen have repeatedly stressed that although they expected bids, Morelos would stay put.

He has netted 20 goals in all competitions so far this season earning crucial away wins at Hearts and St Johnstone, last month.
It’s not just his goals that impress, though. He also works extremely hard.
The 22-year-old plays on the edge, and while it gets him into trouble occasionally, it’s part of what makes him a valuable asset.
If Rangers and Gerrard are serious about a title challenge, they need to rebuff this reported interest.
