Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is reported to be an £8m target for French side Nice this January.
Manager Steven Gerrard confirmed to outlets such as The Scotsman that he is expecting interest from the Ligue 1 outfit for Morelos’ services but has branded their initial advance as ‘disrespectful’.
Anyone watching the Colombian on a regular basis would surely agree that the £8m fee is far too low a valuation for a player who is taking Scottish football by storm this season.
He’s scored an excellent 20 goals and assisted 10 more so far this term, a fabulous return that has propelled Rangers towards the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
It’s a worrying development that teams are again showing interest in signing him, but hopefully the club can hold firm and ensure he does not leave mid-season, especially since we are currently in a title race.
These fans are adamant that he should not be leaving anytime soon and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Tell Nice where to go please @RangersFC. £8 million is a ridiculously undervalued offer for Morelos anyway.

OGC Nice to bid £8m for Alfredo Morelos.
Steven Gerrard will batter Patrick Vieira for such a derogatory bid.

Would be mental imo tae let Morelos go for 8m atm 15m+ minimum but nae point selling him January anyway certainly no fur 8m

Morelos is worth a lot more than £8m

‘No concrete bids’ suggests clubs have shown an interest in Morelos. I’d be surprised if we didn’t receive a speculative £8m bid to test the board’s resolve. Anything less than £12m would be bad business in the current market IMO #Rangers

£8m for Morelos? No thank you.
He has a better record than Dembele had at Celtic who went for double..
Morelos is indispensable to our club and shouldn’t even think about accepting that.

French side, Nice are considering an £8m bid for Alfredo Morelos.
No bids should be entertained unless its double the above mentioned sum.
