Rangers star target for La Liga side as they eye bargain swoop for Gers hero

As Rangers prepare to return for pre-season later this month, the inevitable Alfredo Morelos transfer stories are being dusted off once again with Spanish side Sevilla the latest to be linked with a move to sign El Bufalo.

Reports claim the La Liga side are preparing a bid of around £6.6million for Morelos as he enters the final year of his contract at Ibrox.

Rangers are keen to keep the Colombian at Ibrox beyond the end of his existing deal and, even if they were to sell, it would take much more than £6.6million.

After missing the end of the season through injury, Morelos’ absence was felt by Gio van Bronckhorst’s side and the Ibrox star has been one of the most relied upon players at the club in recent years.

The likes of Lille have had bids of as much as £16million rejected by Rangers and it seems unlikely that the Gers will be willing to accept a much lower offer this summer.

Keeping Morelos vital for Rangers title hopes next season

Morelos has shown time and again why he is so important for Rangers and selling him cheaply this summer would be a huge own goal by the Ibrox hierarchy.

With no obvious replacement in the ranks at Ibrox, selling Morelos would mean the Light Blues would need to delve into the transfer market and hope they can get someone close to being able to replace Buff.

Instead, a new deal should be a priority for Morelos and securing the Colombian’s long-term future at Ibrox would be a massive boost going into pre-season.

Winning back the title and securing a place in the Champions League groups would be worth far more than the reported £6.6million fee and it seems a no-brainer to keep Morelos at Ibrox as long as possible.
