Kenny Miller says that if Glasgow Rangers receive an offer of £20m for Alfredo Morelos, they should seriously look at it.
The Colombia international has been regularly linked with a move away from Ibrox over the past few weeks and months, with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund mentioned in connection with his services, whilst Newcastle are also said to have him on their radar. After 29 goals already this campaign, he is understandably in demand.
Speaking to BBC Sportsound (via The Daily Record), Miller said:
“If you’re getting £20million for Alfredo Morelos then you could look at that.
“There’s some real strengthening you could go and do in that squad and that would probably deal with every area we’ve discussed.
“If he stays, there you go, the proof is in the pudding and you’re guaranteed 25 goals – it’s hard to replace that.
“It all depends on where his head is at because he did go off the boil as well, not just him, the whole team went of the boil in the second half of the season.
“So I wouldn’t point the finger at Alfredo at all, he did go off the boil but he’s still got 28 goals prior to that.
“It’s a lot of goals to have scored in that five, six months of the season.
“I think he’ll go. I’ve no information on that, I don’t know where he’ll go.”
Losing Morelos would leave a big hole up front for Steven Gerrard to fill, but Miller does have a point. £20m would allow the former Liverpool captain to strengthen his squad across the board, which is what they need to do if they are to catch Celtic at the top of the table or win their first piece of silverware since his arrival.
Is Alfredo Morelos Rangers' best player?
With the current pandemic, it remains to be seen whether any side makes a real effort to secure the 23-year-old’s services moving forwards.
