Kevin Campbell is worried about Alfredo Morelos’ future at Glasgow Rangers but, whether the Colombian leaves or not, the former Premier League striker believes it will be resolved quickly.
The Lowdown: Morelos in demand
Nothing concrete has occurred yet, but he is not yet available to Steven Gerrard either as he remains in quarantine after returning to Scotland following a short break (The Daily Record).
The Latest: Campbell worries
Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell believes that the rumours are not good but, no matter what happens, he thinks the situation will be resolved quickly. He said:
“None of this sounds good but this type of thing has happened with Morelos previously and nothing has happened.
“Steven Gerrard is just playing it a bit tongue and cheek. It sounds like Morelos agent is talking a lot, or at least one of his representatives is.
“But at the end of the day he is a Rangers player and he is contracted to the club until 2023.
“Obviously he was out at the Copa America so there will be a little delay on him coming back but when he is back I am sure they will resolve things quickly.”
The Verdict: Concentration
It was reported earlier during this transfer window that Morelos had agreed personal terms with Porto ahead of a move (Antena 1), but that is not really different from what emerged last year. If you remember, the 25-year-old was said to have come to an agreement with Lille (via Mohamed Bouhafsi), but that transfer never materialised.
Will Morelos still be at Rangers by the end of the transfer window?
Morelos is an important player for the Gers, as his record of 94 goals in 182 games shows (Transfermarkt). If he is concentrated on the job at hand at Ibrox, he can be a real danger, but that may not be the case if his future remains in doubt. The situation does need to be resolved as soon as possible, even if that means he is sold.
In other news, this Rangers ace is on the verge of a move away from Ibrox.
