Steven Gerrard reportedly now wants to reunite with Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
The Lowdown: Contract expiring
The Colombian marksman has just one year left on his contract at Ibrox, casting his future with the Gers into doubt.
Given that the 26-year-old could leave for free next summer, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team now have a big dilemma on their hands over whether to cash in on him now or try to hold out for a new deal.
The Latest: Villa want Morelos
However, the Premier League side may face competition from Sevilla for his signature, with the La Liga club having already submitted an €8m (£7m) offer, although that is likely to fall well below Rangers’ valuation.
The Verdict: Keep him!
If the Teddy Bears want the best possible chance of taking the Premiership title back from their bitter rivals Celtic next year, then they need to be keeping hold of their best players, Morelos included.
The £33,000-per-week star was their top scorer last term with 19 goals across all competitions, taking his tally for the club to 113 in five years in Glasgow, and he would simply not be easy to replace.
Will Morelos stay at Rangers next season?
However, the attraction of the English top flight and to play under Gerrard – who has dubbed him a ‘fantastic talent‘ in the past – once again could be very difficult for Morelos to turn down, so Rangers may have their work cut out to keep hold of the Colombian hotshout.
