Plenty of Glasgow Rangers fans were not impressed with reports that Lille offered £13m plus bonuses for Alfredo Morelos.
Jordan Campbell reported for The Athletic that the above offer from the Ligue 1 club was turned down by the ‘Gers, with no currently active discussions between the two sides. He also shared a link to the piece on his Twitter profile @JordanC1107.
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos wants to join Lille, but the clubs are some way apart on agreeing a fee, @TheAthleticUK understands.
A sum of around £13m + bonuses has been deemed not enough.
Understand no active discussions ongoing.https://t.co/bMj3yykrQq

Morelos, who cost the ‘Gers only £1.08m when he joined from HJK Helsinki three years ago (as per TransferMarkt), has scored 77 goals in 137 matches at Ibrox, including 29 last season in a prolific campaign for the Colombian. Fourteen of those goals came in the Light Blues’s Europa League run, which is a record tally in any UEFA cup competition before Christmas.
Is £13m a fair price for Alfredo Morelos?
These ‘Gers fans took to Twitter to voice their unhappiness with Lille’s reported £13m offer for the striker:
Add another £7m to that and we will talk 🤔 https://t.co/H7gR9Upuqf

13 million is honestly terrible in today’s market for a player that scores as much as he does

They’ll need to add another £5m to that.
Club need to stand firm

Glad to see the club standing firm, he is worth more than that.

Nowhere near enough and we can’t sell at that price.

Try 10 on top of that @LOSC_EN

He’s going nowhere for £13m we couldn’t replace what he gives us for that price. Add at least another £5 onto that. Rangers don’t need to sell.

13 mil for a 30 mil player thats mental
