According to The Daily Record, sources close to Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos are not expecting an offer from Porto this summer.
The Lowdown: Speculation
So far this summer, there has been speculation surrounding the future of Morelos, with Portuguese outfit Porto believed to be the main side interested in his services.
The Latest: No Morelos bid expected
Now, as per this latest report, Morelos and co are not expecting an offer during this transfer window from Porto.
At the moment, at least, it seems as though he could be staying at Ibrox.
The Verdict: Still up in the air
Of course, Steven Gerrard and co will be eager to hold on to Morelos. The midfielder has managed 95 goals in 184 games for the club (Transfermarkt), while he showed even in the Gers’ 2-1 Champions League defeat to Malmo on Tuesday that he still knows where the back of the net is.
Will Morelos still be at Rangers by the end of the transfer window?
The problem is whether the Gers can match Morelos’ ambitions. He has previously stated his desire to play in a more prestigious league (Goal.com), and has revealed he dreams of playing in the Premier League (Radio Caracol).
The Champions League is also likely to be a big objective of his – the Gers will now not be competing in that competition this term. Even if Porto do not want to make a move for his services, another European outfit might.
In other news, Rangers fans rage at this SPFL move.
