Rangers manager Steven Gerrard wants striker Alfredo Morelos to come out and state whether he wants to leave Ibrox or not.
The Colombian international has been linked with a number of other clubs this summer but no formal offer has been made for the 23-year-old.
Speaking after Rangers’ friendly win against Derby County yesterday, Gerrard vented his frustration about the uncertainty surrounding Morelos:
“Alfredo is a huge part of what we are trying to do here. Instead of me answering this question every single press conference, I’m going to do everything I can to put”
“Then you can ask him the question of whether he wants to be part of this going forward. I can only say I want him to be a part of it. The decision lands with Alfredo.”
The striker revealed back in May that he was interested in playing in a more competitive league, with a move to England, Spain, France or Italy very much in his thoughts.
AC Milan have been mentioned as a possible destination with the Rossoneri having scouted him during recent Europa League games.
Even so, Morelos does not look to be close to leaving the club any time soon, and Gerrard is clearly seeking a commitment from his striker ahead of the new season. Whether he’ll get it, we shall see.
