Rangers’ Director of Football Ross Wilson has confirmed that the club do have an agreement in place with striker Alfredo Morelos that he can leave Ibrox if an interested team meets their valuation.
Lille were the side believed to have made a formal offer for the Colombian international before the transfer window closed last month, while English Premier League clubs including West Brom, West Ham and Leicester have also been linked with the forward.
However, Wilson has revealed that they did reject a number of bids for Morelos over the summer as they didn’t match their asking price for the player:
“We had interest in Alfredo and we had an agreement with him that if there was a club that met a valuation that we had in mind then we would look at that. That valuation wasn’t met and we rejected some offers for him because they didn’t meet that valuation and he remains with us going forward and we will see what the future holds for him.”
Reports have suggested that the Gers’ valuation is in the region of €20m (£18m), which is a reasonable amount, considering the number of goals he has scored over the last few seasons. The financial difficulties caused by the global health crisis may, though, have affected some teams’ ability to match the figure.
