Rangers have now rejected a bid from Porto for the services of star striker Alfredo Morelos.
The Lowdown: Morelos’ future up in the air
The Colombian has been a superb player for the Gers, helping them win the Scottish Premiership title last season and scoring 94 goals in 182 appearances for the club.
Should Rangers cash in on Morelos now?
The Latest: Porto bid rejected
Porto are seemingly one of the most interested parties, and according to journalist Ekrem Konur on Twitter, they have now seen a bid for the striker turned down.
It is stated that Rangers ‘will be in no hurry to sell’ Morelos, which is no great surprise, considering the influence he has enjoyed at Ibrox, with Steven Gerrard describing him as ‘top class’.
The Verdict: Tough to keep hold of him
In an ideal world, Morelos would stay put with the Gers for years to come, spearheading countless titles charges and improving even more as a player.
It will of course be hard to keep hold of the £10.8million-rated attacker, though, as he looks to potentially test himself in a harder league moving forward and prove himself as one of the very best at a higher level than the Premiership.
For now, it is encouraging to see the club being stubborn about letting him go, and if/when he does eventually move on, Gerrard will at least be given a hefty amount to spend on new signings as it seems the club will hold out for every last penny.
