Rangers could be forced into cut-price Alfredo Morelos sale - expert

Rangers might have to settle for a lower price for Alfredo Morelos if he leaves the club this summer, according to Alan Hutton.

The former Ibrox right-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said that the club may have to let the 26-year-old leave this summer.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik (20 June), Besiktas will hold talks with Morelos this week over a possible move to Turkey.

The Colombian striker has one year remaining on his contract with the Glasgow club.

In 2020 Lille made an offer of around £16million for the striker, but the bid was rejected as Rangers were looking for closer to £20million to let him leave.

Hutton believes that the Gers may be forced to accept a lower price for Morelos.

“If six million is the highest offer possible then Rangers might feel that they have to take it.” he told Football Insider.

“I think the problem is, it’s the last year of his contract so that means he could go to anybody in January for free which isn’t great for Rangers as a football club.

“So obviously they’ll have to listen to all offers.

“I would like to see him stay obviously, I think he’s got a lot to offer.

“He’s still young enough, he’s still hungry enough.

“We could see how much of a miss he was at the back end of last season.

“So hopefully he can stay but if the fees big enough Rangers will have to listen to it.”
