Rangers want same amount of money Celtic’s Moussa Dembele fetched in the summer

Rangers want same amount of money Celtic’s Moussa Dembele fetched in the summer

A lot has been spoken about Alfredo Morelos and his future at Rangers over the last few transfer windows and a lot more is likely to be discussed in future transfer periods.

The Colombia international has been in fine form for the Light Blues this season, having scored 28 goals so far this season, which will only further intensify the speculation surrounding his future at Ibrox.

The 22-year-old revealed last week in an interview in his homeland that he knew there were offers for him across Europe and now it appears any potential suitor will know how much they will have to part with to land him.

What’s the News?

According to the Daily Record, it is understood a transfer figure in the region of at least £20million is required.

Managing director Stewart Robertson believes Morelos is in the same bracket as Moussa Dembele, who left Celtic for Olympique de Lyonnais in the summer for £19.8m.

“We rate (Alfredo) Morelos at least the same as (Moussa) Dembele in terms of value,” he said.

The Verdict:

Morelos is definitely a player Rangers need to keep at Ibrox for as long as possible, although doing so could be extremely difficult to achieve.

With the fact that the Colombian international has already attracted plenty of interest in the past, it would not be surprising to see him receive a number of offers in the summer either.

And, as such, it would be extremely hard to argue with Robertson and Rangers’ valuation of Morelos based on his time at Ibrox.

The Colombian international has been nothing short of amazing during his time in Scotland, having arrived at the club for a fee of just £1.08m in the summer of 2017 from HJK Helsinki.

£20m could be a fee that Rangers easily achieve in the modern financial climate within the transfer market, as strikers arguably less-talented than him have commanded bigger fees in the past.

However, if they were to sell him, it could be a huge task for the club to replace him and his goals.

Rangers fans, would you be happy to receive £20m for Morelos, or do you feel he is worth more than Dembele? Join in the discussion below by letting us know what you think.
