After a 10 day run Sky Sports have put the boot into the farcical claim that Alfredo Morelos was a transfer target for Sevilla. A price of £7-8m has been quoted with zero substance. 

The striker is now into his 10th transfer window without any bids being put in despite speculation that clubs from almost every county on the planet keeping tabs/ lining up bids/ preparing to make an offer. 

In an effort to generate some business Betfair produced an article listing where Morelos is likely to be playing football next season. 

Out of thin air Sevilla were chosen as favourites followed by Aston Villa. That generated a few articles from Scottish publications, follow up tweets with one equally desperate outlet in Spain deciding to take it seriously. 

That outlet has been quoted in Scotland over the last 24 hours but bursting a bubble this afternoon, Sky Sports admitted: 

Sevilla have not made an £8million offer for striker Alfredo Morelos, Sky Sports understands. 

The Spanish club have been linked with the Colombian and a Seville-based sports news outlet reported that they had submitted a formal bid for the 26-year-old, who is in the final year of his current deal at Ibrox. 

Hyping up the striker in July 2019, Sky Sports claimed: 

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has turned down a lucrative £30m contract offer from Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune, Sky Sports News understands. 

The three-year deal would have seen the Colombian earn £10m-a-year before tax. Sky Sports News understands Hebei were willing to match Rangers’ valuation of the striker, believed to be in excess of £15m, although no official bid was received. 

With a year left on his contract and no real interest it looks like Morelos will complete six years at Ibrox next summer then walk away for no fee, not even a Dembele Dime.
