Alfredo Morelos hasn’t asked Rangers to quit the club or signalled in any way that he has had enough of life at the Ibrox outfit, according to a recent report from the Daily Record.
They state that reports from the Portuguese press had indicated that the Colombian had pushed to depart the Gers, but they have been informed by Rangers that is not the case.
The report adds that Morelos is expected back for the pre-season campaign as scheduled, and Steven Gerrard expects the player to be fit and prepared to hit the ground running.
There have been so many claims from Portugal about Alfredo already this summer’s transfer market, but this latest update suggests that the South American is happy at Ibrox, which is brilliant news for fans.
However, thus far, Porto haven’t even made an offer for him, and the Colombian hasn’t asked to leave Ibrox, so the 25-year-old is nowhere near becoming the Dragons player at the moment [A Bola].
It is no wonder that the Liga NOS giants are interested because Alfredo has superb goalscoring stats and is still young, but he is still a Gers player and will almost certainly remain that way until an eye-catching bid comes in for him [The Athletic].
But, there is still a long time to go until the transfer market shuts and Porto could still land Morelos, but for now, there does not seem to be too much to worry about regarding the Colombia international and the Gers.
In the meantime, Joe Aribo has attracted attention from a Premier League side, according to the latest reports.
The Rangers man missed last weekend’s pre-season friendly versus Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal – and Allnigeriasoccer.com reports that an unnamed English top-flight outfit have ‘concrete interest’ in the player.
However, the Nigerian sports website says Aribo missing the match had nothing to do with a possible exit from the Ibrox side – having instead picked up a minor injury in training.
It’s stated that the London-born midfielder has always dreamed of playing in the PL and could realise his ambition in the near future.
The 24-year-old netted eight goals and notched seven assists as the club went on to lift the Scottish Premiership trophy, and that was in spite of having spent a period out injured early on in the season.
