According to Portuguese outlet Antena1, Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has agreed a move to Porto this summer.
The Lowdown: Porto want Morelos
£10.8m-valued Morelos (Transfermarkt), who is currently competing for Colombia at the Copa America, is a strong target for Portuguese outfit Porto this summer.
It has been said the two-time European champions had hoped to sign the forward for a fee of €12m (Bruno Andrade), which is about £10.3m.
The Latest: Deal agreed
Now, it is being said that Morelos has already agreed personal terms with Porto ahead of a move.
Antena1 are now certain that he will make the switch to Portugal before the end of the transfer window with a ‘full agreement’ in place.
The Verdict: Hammer blow for Gerrard
This will come as a huge blow to Steven Gerrard and the rest of the Rangers set-up. Morelos has proven to be a consistent goalscorer for the Ibrox outfit, netting 94 times in 182 matches (Transfermarkt), and his record of 23 in 45 Europa League games shows he is capable of finding the back of the net at a higher level.
Will Morelos be at Rangers next season?
Gerrard and co will always have been aware Morelos will leave the Gers at some point – he has previously indicated a desire to play in a more competitive league (Goal.com). However, they will perhaps be shocked of the timing of the move. The Gers have the chance to reach the Champions League group stages this term – if Morelos’ goals were to help them get there, he could cement his status as a modern-day club legend.
In other news, Rangers fans are livid at this 21/22 reveal.
