Journalist Jonny McFarlane has revealed that talks are still ongoing at Rangers to try and extend the contract of Alfredo Morelos.
The Rangers Review writer was speaking on the site’s YouTube channel amid speculation surrounding the Colombian’s future.
Morelos who has scored 113 goals in 224 appearances for the Light Blues is in the final 12 months of his current deal in Glasgow with the Rangers backroom clamouring to try and tie down a player who ex-Borussia Dortmund manager Marco Rose said ‘knows where the goal is’.
The club may have to take the decision to let their talisman move on should he not commit his future but McFarlane has stressed that they are still working on striking a rapport.
Should Rangers sell Morelos?
(10:47)”I think the club are desperate to come to an agreement with Alfredo Morelos.
“I know certainly the last time I checked they were still in talks and still trying to sort something out with his agent.”
TIF Thoughts on Morelos and Rangers…
Morelos was brought to Ibrox back in 2017 originally on a three-year deal and having finished as the side’s top scorer in four of his five Scottish Premiership campaigns the fans won’t want to see the back of him just yet.
Estadio Deportivo recently reported that Sevilla were readying an €8m (£6.9m) offer for the 26-year-old with some suggestion that the bid had already been tabled and the continued interest led to some polarising comments from former Celtic midfielder Peter Grant who called the £11.7m-rated frontman a ‘liability’ (Go Radio Football Show via Daily Record) and he insisted he would let Morelos move on.
However, that won’t certainly be the consensus among Gers followers especially with former Ibrox striker Gordon Dalziel claiming he looks ‘happier’ under Giovanni van Bronckhorst and they will be keen to see El Buffalo return from injury.
