Mills: Rangers tipped to accept £9m Morelos bid after reveal
Danny Mills has tipped Rangers to accept a £9million bid plus add-ons for Alfredo Morelos.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England and Premier League defender insisted Morelos would represent extremely good value at that price.
Football Insider revealed on 26 June Rangers had told FC Porto they want £13million for their star man.
The Portuegese giants had been in contact with the Gers over a potential deal for the Colombian.
Morelos’ current contract expires in two years time and talks over an extension have yet to get off the ground.
Football Insider revealed in October 2020 he wanted a big pay rise after failing to secure a move the previous summer.

Asked whether the 25-year-old will attract more interest if he is available for £13million, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “It’s not a huge figure for somebody who can score your goals, somebody who’s got real quality and will be a pain in the backside at times.
“If they’re setting the price of £13million, you may get him for £9million plus a couple of add-ons.
“It’s pretty cheap in this day and age, realistically. There’s not a huge amount of risk in that.
“If you get 18 decent months out of him at that price then you’ve got your money’s worth.
“He’s a very good goalscorer, so there’s no reason why he can’t make that step across.”
Morelos has scored 94 goals and provided 43 assists in 182 games across his four-year spell at Ibrox.
He became the club’s record goalscorer in European competitions last season and now has 23 strikes in the Europa League for the Gers.
