Once again a bid has arrived for Alfredo Morelos, only this time it’s at roughly the level the club wants. A €20M (£18.6M) bid has appeared from French giants Lille, and Serie A cracks Fiorentina and PL side West Brom are also monitoring the situation.
This time, the club now has a real decision to make, and there are no reports yet suggesting it’s been rejected.
Which means chances are that Alfredo Morelos just played his last match for Rangers with a goal at Easter Road and the 24-year old striker, already previously having had agreed terms with the Ligue 1 outfit, will make the switch from Ibrox to the Stade Pierre Mauroy within a matter of time.
Of course, the interest remains from the PL mob and the Italians as well, but only Lille have actually put in the hard numbers for the striker.
And now that fans have seen him score 3 goals in two matches, some have about turned on their previous desire to drive him to the airport and reckon he’s essential in the pursuit of 55.
We’re not sure exactly why – goals have been coming from all over the park this season for Rangers – we have scored 17 goals in 8 matches (3 from el bufalo) and have been winning comfortably without the striker, so why he is suddenly now critical for the title is for better people than us to argue, but that’s what some fans think.
So we’ll defer this one to you lot, our valued readers:
