In what seems like a long time coming, Alfredo Morelos looks to be close to the Ibrox exit door with the news coming out of France that Lille have agreed personal terms with the Colombian international striker, as reported by Sky Sports.

Morelos’s profile has risen dramatically over the last two seasons contributing directly to 80 goals, scoring 69 in the process, a sizeable hole should the club decide to cash in on their most valuable asset.

The timing of the proposed deal couldn’t be worse ahead of one of the most eagerly anticipated seasons in recent history with the first fixture of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season against Aberdeen just a week away.

Steven Gerrard in action for Liverpool

In what season did Steven Gerrard make his Liverpool debut?

Gers fans have taken to social media in response to the news hoping that the club get value for money to provide much needed funds for Steven Gerrard as he looks to replace a player who is unlikely to be forgotten in a hurry.

There is never a dull moment when supporting Rangers and fans of the Light Blues will be hoping that Gerrard and Ross Wilson can secure replacements before Morelos departs Glasgow, going into the new season with no available number nine, hardly ideal preparation for such a big season – securing a club record transfer fee would go some way in helping the Gers gaffer fill the void.
