Glasgow Rangers reportedly turned down a loan offer for Alfredo Morelos at the weekend, according to The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell.
Morelos has been linked with a move away from Ibrox throughout the window, with him even reportedly agreeing personal terms with Lille.
He remains a Gers player though, even despite there being an offer from Serie A for his services at the weekend. According to Campbell, the bid was initially a €2m (£1.8m) loan with an option to buy, but that was reportedly less than the £14m Lille previously offered.
Morelos is somehow still at Ibrox despite the intense speculation surrounding his future. Along with Lille, Marseille, AC Milan and Fiorentina have all been linked more recently, yet it looks as though the Colombia international is said to remain with the 54-time Scottish champions.
Are you surprised that Morelos looks set to stay at Rangers?
The Gers reportedly wanted £20m for the 24-year-old, which makes this offer from an unnamed Italian club rather insulting. Despite the disruption, Morelos has scored five goals in 10 matches this season – he clearly still has a role to play at the club. Letting him go on loan would be absolutely criminal from Ross Wilson and co – they had little choice but to turn down this offer.
