After comical links to AC Milan, Marseilles and Newcastle the club from Ibrox are leaking stories about rejecting an offer from West Brom for Alfredo Morelos.
In-between times the player himself has apparently turned down a £10m/year offer to move to China!
As he has learned from previous transfer windows there is virtually no interest from clubs in signing Morelos never mind matching the ‘Dembele dollars’ that Celtic collected from Lyon a year ago.
With no significant goals in Europe, no goals against Celtic and not even a cup final appearance to his name Morelos has yet to do anything to attract interest or bids.
Explaining a ‘£10m plus’ bid from West Brom the Daily Record reports:
Midlands sources close to West Bromwich Albion have confirmed that the Championship club’s lucrative deal was put to Rangers on Wednesday, but were informed by the Ibrox hierarchy that it was well short of what they are value him at. There were further add ons if West Brom won promotion back to the Premier League but it wasn’t enough to coax Rangers to the table.
Steven Gerrard will now have to decide whether to pick Morelos to face Midtjylland tonight with another transfer rumour circulating.
Last season Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez contributed 45 Championship goals to West Brom with Gayle returning from his loan deal to Newcastle while Burnley spent £10m signing Rodriguez.
