A little known Spanish journalist has added fresh life to the so-called transfer race for Alfredo Morelos.
A tweet from Gonzalo Tortosa has convinced the gullibles into believing that there is genuine interest in the chunky Colombian although the 8m euros transfer fee isn’t meeting with approval. Tortosa has less than 4,000 Twitter followers after 10 years on the platform.

Seeing the tweet picked up elsewhere Tortosa retweeted:
#ColombianosHD Sevilla habría ofrecido 8 millones de euros para fichar al delantero colombiano Alfredo Morelos, de Rangers.

Tortosa seems to do some work for El Chiringuito TV but there is no sign on their website of the Morelos scoop. Possibly due to the fact that the source of the Sevilla link was a PR stunt by Betfair guessing at the next club of the crocked striker.
That story was picked up by most Scottish media outlets once they had realised that there was no follow up to claims that Calvin Bassey was the subject of interest across Europe with clubs from Italy and England ready to bid £25m.
Morelos is now into his 10th Ibrox transfer window, and still waiting for the first non-moonbeam bid to land.
With a year left on his contract there is no chance of Morelos’ transfer fee matching the Dembele Dollars that Celtic got from Lyon four years ago.

Actualmente el interés del Fenerbahce no llega a lo que pide el club verdiblanco y el internacional portugués está muy contento en Sevilla.
