'Very exciting' – Rangers key first-teamer reveals where he wants to move in the summer
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has broken his silence after being the subject of intense speculation over recent weeks.
He’s been strongly linked to Chinese club Beijing Renhe over the January transfer window and beyond – with the Chinese deadline window not closing until February 28.
The last reported bid was for £11m but the Rangers stance hasn’t changed, despite a report in the Scottish Sun claiming that the bid was a take-it-or-leave-it one.
The reliable source of Rangers news, Four Lads Had a Dream reported that he wouldn’t be sold until the summer and that Rangers hadn’t received a bid that they thought was satisfactory.
Rangers stance remains the same, Alfredo Morelos stays until the summer minimum & no satisfactory bid has been made yet.
He is in the squad for tomorrow & If he plays hopefully he does the business.
Great show of strength by board & another indication we are in a good place

Now Morelos has spoken and while he acknowledged that clubs were interested in him, he gave no indication that he was tempted by a lucrative move to China.
Instead he said that he wanted a move to the Premier League, something that he’d find “very exciting”.
“I play in a country very close to the English Premier League and I think that many teams are watching me,” said Morelos in the Scottish Sun.
“So I am very happy with what I am doing right now.
“I have a positive mentality and if a team in England showed serious interest in me, it would be very exciting.”
