It is evident Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent are not signing new deals as things stand.
Kent and Morelos have had offers on the table for ages now, from what we understand Kent has had his for months, and despite Rangers securing Champions League, neither Morelos or the Englishman have shown interest in extending their terms with Rangers.
Have Rangers not offered enough? Clearly these two consider themselves of high importance to the club, and whatever Rangers have presented in the paperwork hasn’t tempted either of them.
So what now?
Both Kent and Morelos are free to talk to new clubs in January, just as Goldson was – in his case he didn’t get a single offer from October 2020 till late May this year that suggested anything else of use was coming, so he signed on the dotted line.
Let’s start with Kent:
He WAS happy at Rangers, but that seems to have changed. Something has changed for Kent, and he appears to be looking further afield now. Champions League isn’t the temptation it was because the side is completely out of its depth and there’s no glory. He did want a crack at it, but it’s not worked out, and he’d be much happier going home now. Quite simply we think Ryan Kent wants to play for a bigger and better team.
We’ve seen what he can do when in the zone, albeit it was only the Europa League, so he obviously believes he’s capable of more than the SPL. He’s seemingly made the decision that he doesn’t want to miss out on the PL, and wants to follow Joe Aribo south.
He’s not obviously downed tools like Kamara has, but it does seem like Kent’s time at Ibrox is winding down now.
Then there’s Morelos:
He doesn’t want to stay, never wanted to stay, and isn’t signing a new deal. He remains, to this day, gutted that his move to Lille fell through, and that the Porto link faded. His heart has never been at Ibrox, and his attitude overtook his professionalism earlier this season when he was dropped for laziness. He’s back now, and for Alfredo Morelos it’s about the shop window. He wants his move now and he’ll happily talk to teams in January. ‘Nuff said.
Now, of course, this is how things stand at the moment with them – life is subject to change and we will never present our facts as absolute and never altering. Maybe both of them will shock us and change their minds, signing on the lines.
But it’s pretty evident that they won’t, unless Goldson-style neither of them get good offers.
So that’s that.
