Alfredo Morelos could leave Rangers in a “mega-money deal” in January if a late window exit fails to materialise, according to Danny Mills.

The former Leeds and Manchester City defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, is adamant that Steven Gerrard will have held recent talks with the 24-year-old regarding his future.

Football Insider revealed yesterday that the Gers are expecting late-window offers for Morelos ahead of tomorrow night’s deadline but will only sell Morelos if their asking price is met.

That price remains in the region of £15million which could prove to be a barrier for the Colombia international’s suitors this summer.

Morelos has fired five goals in 10 appearances for this season despite Gerrard revealing that the striker’s head had been turned by transfer speculation earlier in the window.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the Morelos transfer saga, Mills said: “Rangers have Europa League football and that is a big reason for players to stay.

“Morelos’ exit may have fell down for a number of different reasons and I am sure Steven Gerrard will now say, ‘Look, you are here. You are staying here now so you may as well make the best of it.’

“If a player wants to move the best thing to do is play your heart out, work your socks off, score goals and then somebody might come with that mega-money move in January or next summer. Then he may get that move.

“If he does not play, teams will not come in for him. It is in his hands. As a player you might be disgruntled for two or three weeks but then you get your head around it and knuckle down.”
