  • Morelos signed for Rangers from HJK Helsinki in 2017.
  • The Colombian has scored 77 goals in 137 matches for the Gers, while assisting 29 more.
  • He enjoyed a sensational 2019/20 campaign, netting 29 goals in 46 matches.

  • The 24-year-old signed a new contract with Rangers in March last year, extending his stay at Ibrox until 2023.

The Ligue 1 giants are set to lose Victor Osimhen, who is closing in on a £60m transfer to Napoli. They are planning to use those funds to land Morelos, with a £15m move believed to be in the works. (h/t Glasgow Live)

Given how important Morelos is to the team, losing him this summer would be a bitter blow as Steven Gerrard & co. try to dislodge rivals Celtic from their perch. But given the interest that he is generating, it remains to be seen if Rangers manage to hold onto their talismanic striker.
