Rangers reportedly trying to keep their star at all costs

According to the Daily Record, Rangers could soon lose their best goalscorer, Alfredo Morelos, after the Chinese Super League giants Guangzhou offered £7 million to acquire his services. But, the Light Blues will give their best efforts to avoid that scenario.

The Gers manager Graeme Murty had stated he has no intention of sanctioning Morelos’ transfer this winter, as his club is desperately trying to secure European football this season.

The 21-year-old Colombian striker has had a stunning first half of the season in the Scottish Premiership, scoring eleven goals in 22 appearances.

The former HJK Helsinki man would like to move to the English Premier League next summer, but a lucrative offer from China could force him to reconsider his options.

However, Graeme Murty seems unwilling to give up on the prolific forward, as he lacks quality attacking options.

“Talks are ongoing, they haven’t met our valuation. We have to make a footballing decision based on whether we can resource someone of Alfredo’s footballing ability. I’ve not been told there is any economic necessity to move him away.

“We are not in a situation where we have to sell any player,” Murty said.

After the unconvincing performances from Michael O’Halloran and Eduardo Herrera, only Jason Cummings could replace Morelos, and the 43-year-old coach is not ready to take that gamble.
