Alfredo Morelos: the Rangers striker agrees to join Lille | Football News


Alfredo Morelos is wanted by Ligue 1 Lille

Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos has made personal deals with Lille, and the two clubs are currently negotiating fees for the Colombia international.

Lille are looking for a striker this summer to replace star striker Victor Osimhen, who is set to leave the French club this summer, with Napoli set to sign him.

Morelos has established himself as a key Rangers player since joining HJK Helsinki in 2017, scoring 44 goals in 91 appearances for the club.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard spoke earlier this week about his desire to beef up his options ahead of next season.

Gerrard said, “We don’t have enough options in the number nine area at the moment. We are actively seeking to strengthen in this area. We have to be patient and try to find the right one.

“We can’t just make a short-term decision. We have to look at the big picture and in the long term.

“We will only come in for the right name who can help us in 60 games rather than someone who can help us for the next few weeks. “

Gerrard received the funds to make Jermain Defoe and Ianis Hagi’s loan deals permanent, while Calvin Bassey, Jon McLaughlin and Leon Balogun also arrived, but the former Liverpool skipper called on the club’s hierarchy for support. in the transfer market as they attempt to fight Celtic’s title.

“We need more,” he said. “I told the club that I had been honest and open with what I thought I needed.

“As for our financial situation, these are questions for other people – but I have made it clear that we have to add to what we have.

“We have to add players in the 11 to make us stronger and then naturally that will make the team stronger. At the moment, we still have to attract people. ”

Earlier this month Lille had a £ 23million offer for Canadian striker Jonathan David rejected by Ghent. Gent is ready to let David go this summer, but wants between £ 27 million and £ 32million to sanction a sale.
