Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd believes the club should consider selling Alfredo Morelos this summer.
The Gers reportedly value the Colombian forward at £20m, and Boyd thinks that kind of money would be useful in improving the squad.
The Kilmarnock player believes Morelos’s sale could help to bring in three or four new signings for manager Steven Gerrard:
“If I was Rangers I would sell him because I think that if you can get the money that teams might be willing to pay, you can go and maybe strengthen your squad or your first team with maybe three or four other players who can make a big difference.”
“I think when Alfredo Morelos plays, he plays up there on his own. A lot of things go through him being that lone striker – he plays a lot for himself.”
“I thought Rangers last season towards the end, finished very strongly with Scott Arfield and Jermain Defoe up front. It looked a totally different team. They looked like a team that were playing together.”
There are reportedly a number of clubs interested in signing the 22-year-old, but it remains to be seen whether any would match Rangers’ valuation.
After scoring 30 goals last campaign, the club would need to think very hard before selling up, and if no offer is received which comes close to their asking price, the Scottish club should look to keep Morelos.
The player himself has said he is open to moving to another league, but he won’t force a move away from Ibrox and has stated he’d be content to stay put.
