As per Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra, Alfredo Morelos has formally requested to leave Glasgow Rangers following Lille’s latest transfer offer.
Morelos has been the subject of intense interest from the Ligue 1 outfit, with him even having reportedly agreed personal terms with Les Dogues. The ‘Gers, however, have already rejected one bid of £16m for the Colombia international, as confirmed by Lille president Gerard Lopez.
Sierra has now revealed that another offer has been made for the striker. He revealed on Twitter:
CONFIRMED: Colombian forward Alfredo Morelos (24) has formally asked #Rangers to accept the €20M offer made by #Lille. Decisive hours.
That €20m offer equates to roughly £18m, which would represent some profit for a player that was signed for just £1.08m in 2017. At this point, though, the saga is starting to become a bit tiresome – no doubt Steven Gerrard and Ross Wilson will want this to be resolved as soon as possible.
Will Morelos still be at Rangers by the end of the transfer window?
Whilst he has been a hugely potent presence at Ibrox, with 79 goals in 142 games for the club, no one player is bigger than that team. If this report is genuine, the 54-time Scottish champions would be mad not to accept the offer.
