Rangers: £10 million is far too cheap for Alfredo Morelos

Rangers should be strong over what Alfredo Morelos is worth.

Obviously, the former Helsinki striker has been at the centre of transfer speculation for the majority of this transfer window, with a handful of clubs from both England and across Europe reported by Goal to be interested in Steven Gerrard’s star asset, and the latest piece of information regarding Morelos is sure to rile up some supporters.

According to Football Insider, the club are open to selling Morelos this summer but only for bids that go over Rangers’ valuation of £10 million for the striker, and for anyone who has seen the Colombian play over the past two seasons, it’s not hard to argue that he should be worth move.

Although the striker has a Transfermarkt valuation of £2.7 million, Morelos’ goal record at Rangers not only shows how impressive the Colombian has been but that he is worth more than both this valuation as well as the £10 million the club reportedly want for him.

48 goals and 19 assists in 91 games in all competitions is a strong record, averaging out to a goal contribution every 1.3 games, and although you can argue that this can be down to playing in Scotland, it doesn’t take away the fact that Morelos is highly prolific at both scoring and setting up teammates.

Hailed by James Rodriguez as the potential future of Colombian football and a player, who at just 23, has a lot of his career ahead of him, £10m does seem rather cheap.

With the likes of Kieran Tierney of Celtic being touted for a reported £25 million by the Times as the Scottish left-back nears a move to Arsenal, it’s easy to see why Morelos going for just £10 million can be seen as a poor sale. After all, Odsonne Edouard commanded a £9m transfer fee when moving to the Bhoys and Morelos outscored the Frenchman last season.

Frankly, if a bid does come in for the striker, Rangers should be going for as high a fee as they can for a player who has been one of the best in Scotland for some time.
