Alfredo Morelos at Rangers: Five things you need to know…

  • Alfredo Morelos joined Rangers from HJK Helsinki in the summer of 2017.
  • The striker has plundered 77 goals in 137 matches for the Gers, while assisting 29 more.
  • Morelos enjoyed a sensational 2019/20 campaign, bagging 29 goals in 46 matches.
  • The 24-year-old has been capped six times by the Colombian national team.
  • He signed a new contract with Rangers in March last year, extending his stay at Ibrox till 2023.

However, a representative of the Colombian international has revealed that he prefers a switch to Serie A. And as a result, his services were offered to Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli. (h/t Glasgow Live)

“He is a very valuable player for whom there are different clubs interested, especially in the Premier League, but his preference is to move to Italy. I had proposed him to Giuntoli, after he had given me his approval.”

However, the agent said that a move would be unlikely now as Napoli are closing in on the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille. (h/t Glasgow Live)

“(Victor) Osimhen? Great footballer, if the attacker has arrived in the city and talks to the club, then it means that there is an excellent chance for it to be closed. The possible arrival of the Nigerian excludes the commitment of another attacker.”

Resolving the situation surrounding Morelos should be a top priority for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard at the moment. The 24-year-old is a key cog in the side and losing him would hurt their chances of knocking Celtic off their perch in the Premiership.
