Turkish giants Besiktas are reported to be confident they can sign Rangers striker Alfedo Morelos this summer for a laughable £1.7million and if the Ibrox giants were expecting to sell the Colombian then it could now have a knock-on effect to other transfer plans.
According to Fanatik, Besiktas think they can secure the 21-year-old on the cheap just six months after the Ibrox giants rejected an £8million offer from Beijing Renhe for him.
After spending the last six months on loan at Ibrox, the Gers have an option to make Jason Cummings’ signing permanent but if Morelos ends up being a Rangers player next season then it seriously limits the chances of Cummings also being at Ibrox.
Incoming manager Steven Gerrard has also been credited with an interest in Sheffield Wednesday’s Jordan Rhodes, according to the Sheffield Star, so keeping both Morelos and Cummings is incredibly unlikely.
Morelos’ form dropped off towards the end of the season, although after playing pretty much constantly for 12 months straight that was to be expected, and there will almost certainly be one new striker at Ibrox this summer but after proving to be far too similar to each other in their style of play it is probably going to take sorting out the future of Morelos out before any decision can be made about signing Cummings – and if Besiktas’ bid is as good as it gets then the Colombian will be going nowhere.
