Image for Rangers: McFarlane reveals that talks are ongoing about huge agreement

Journalist Jonny McFarlane has revealed on the Rangers Review YouTube channel that discussions are ongoing between the club and Alfredo Morelos regarding a new contract.

McFarlane’s update comes amid reports in Spain linking the Colombian striker with an exit, with Sevilla thought to be preparing to make an €8m (£6.9m) offer for the 26-year-old, with some suggestion that the bid had already been tabled.

The update relayed comments made by Spanish journalist Gonzalo Tortosa, who claimed that Morelos would be open to a move to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, as he viewed the opportunity as a ‘perfect step’ in his career after five years in Glasgow.

However, McFarlane was quick to shoot down the emerging news on Twitter, saying that suggestions of a bid were ‘emphatically denied’ and he has since revealed that the 11-cap Colombia international is working on a new deal with his current employers.

Should Rangers sell Morelos?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

He said: “The player is still in talks with Rangers. Rangers are still extremely keen to retain Alfredo Morelos and that is developing behind the scenes. We know that the club is extremely keen to keep these things under wraps, so as these things develop, they try and keep them in-house.”

How well do you remember where Rangers' signings came in from down the years? Take our quiz to find out! First up, Carlos Pena was the Gers' most expensive arrival during the summer of 2017, but where did he join from?

The £11.7m-rated frontman has scored 113 goals in 224 appearances for the Light Blues and weighed in with 51 assists in that time, meaning his loss would be huge.

Given his precarious contract situation, something is going to have to give, and with only 12 months left on his current deal, we will perhaps find out sooner rather than later.

He has finished as the club’s top scorer in the Scottish Premiership in four of his five seasons at Ibrox, and Ross Wilson won’t like to see him move on.

However, if a new contract can’t be agreed upon, the Gers are going to have to accept what perhaps will be an unsatisfactory offer or else lose their talisman for nothing next summer.
