Rangers look increasingly likely to sell Alfredo Morelos during the upcoming January transfer window, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Lowdown: Morelos’s season so far
As things stand, Morelos is set to see his contract at Ibrox expire in the summer.
Having made 19 appearances for the Gers across all competitions this season, the Colombian has only started five games, with just one of those coming in the league.
Now that the domestic action is set to resume in the coming days, with the January transfer window just around the corner, it has been suggested that a winter exit could be on the cards for the £33k-per-week striker.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s Morelos exit claim
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke had this to say about Morelos and what the future could hold for him.
“Morelos has been linked with a move away from Rangers pretty much every transfer window, and now he’s second choice to Colak I think that it’s more and more likely that Rangers could decide to cash in on him in January.”
The Verdict: A gamble for Rangers?
Back in October, Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson revealed that talks with the Colombian over a potential new contract are ongoing.
With Michael Beale now at the helm, it seems likely that he’ll have a big impact on how much game time Morelos will have throughout the remainder of the season, which could therefore influence the striker on whether or not he signs a new deal at Rangers.
Should Rangers sell Morelos in January?
Either way, it appears as if the club have a decision to make in January to either cash in on the 26-year-old in the winter window or run the risk of losing him as a free agent in the summer.
In our view, given the attacking presence he has and the fact that he has the highest rate of goals per shot on target (0.75) at Rangers this season, the club should keep hold of him and give him some more game time to not only help the team on the pitch but to also convince him to sign a new deal.
