Alfredo Morelos has been the focal point of this current Rangers team, and Steven Gerrard has backed him to no ends even with all the antics the striker initiates on the pitch. The Colombian though has produced results more often than not as he has managed 17 goals and ten assists so far in all competitions. The 22-year-old has been a subject of various bids in the past two transfer windows and Rangers’ assistant manager indicated that the striker would again attract interest in the upcoming transfer period.

Gary McAllister was quoted as saying (The Scottish Sun),”There will probably be interest in Morelos. But if we’re sat where we are in the table when we come to the end of the month, selling him can’t be a consideration. The manager has said he will fall out with people if Morelos is sold. It’s the same feeling here. He is a key player for this group.”

The striker had also once claimed (The Scottish Sun) that he dreams of playing in the Premier League so it remains to be seen whether an English club would take a punt on him in January. However, the way McAllister sounded, it clearly suggests that Gerrard is strictly going to tie him down.

It’s clear that Morelos is destined for big things and as long as he produces good numbers on the pitch, he would continue to garner interest in the transfer window. The forward was subject to a bid from Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux in the summer, and there were big money offers from China as well.

Morelos is likely to leave in the future, and Gerrard had also spoken previously that only big money (Evening Express) offers would persuade him to sell his best players. In our estimation, the boss wouldn’t bother listening to any offer if it’s not somewhere around the £20-25m mark.

The Premiership race is heating up as Rangers currently trail the Hoops narrowly. With an Old Firm derby around the corner, things can quickly change, and Morelos is going to play a big part if the Bears want to stop Celtic’s juggernaut. It is likely that the club could look to sign another striker in January, but Morelos remains an indispensable part of this current squad.

Selling him in January would be disastrous, and that could undo all the good work the club had done in the past few months. Rangers would get a chance to make money on Morelos as he is still 22 and the way he is going, he can certainly improve his game even further. For now, selling him in January is a big ‘no-no’ until and unless the money is really astronomical for the striker.
