  • 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)

Rangers are currently short of options in the centre-forward department after Jermain Defoe picked up an injury in a friendly against Motherwell.

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.
