Rangers plan to sell Alfredo Morelos and Ianis Hagi during this summer transfer window, according to GiveMeSport. The Scottish Premiership champions are set to cash in on Alfredo, and Ianis, to help raise funds to bolster their team.
While “selling two of their biggest footballers might not sound overly ambitious”, the opportunity to raise funds is “tempting”. As a result, it is understood that if the correct bids are made, both Morelos and Hagi could be moved on by the Gers.
When you look at the Gers squad that won the Scottish Premiership last campaign, there are not too many footballers who you’d be willing to see leave.
Of course, there are fringe footballers like Jordan Jones, Brandon Barker and George Edmundson who would be almost instantly forgotten if they failed to turn up at Rangers again, but there are some who are in a bit of a grey area.
Hagi was excellent last campaign. Romania international wasn’t amazing, and he wasn’t bad. Ianis was good. Rangers manager like to play the 22-year-old attacker out wide, and that didn’t help him out to start with, but as the campaign went on, Ianis did become more accustomed to the role.
As quoted by the Scottish Sun, Ally McCoist dubbed the Romanian attacker as an “extremely gifted” footballer, and Rangers would undoubtedly agree on that. However, Hagi is replaceable, and if the Gers can get a decent fee, selling the attacker could be a good option.
As for Colombia international, there’s no way the centre-forward should be sold unless a mega-money offer comes in this transfer window.
The English manager insists he’s exasperated with the continual speculation over the future of the 25-year-old striker as he admitted he couldn’t guarantee the centre-forward will be at Rangers next campaign.
The 25-year-old centre-forward has been at the centre of a transfer window saga since being linked with mega-bucks move to China midway through his first campaign at the Ibrox.
Ligue 1 champions Lille had an offer rejected last campaign, and this transfer window Porto are reportedly on the trail of the Colombian striker.
Steven Gerrard has recently hit out at mischief-making by the South American striker’s representatives and has grown tired already of the subject again.
Alfredo has been given extra time off after being part of Colombia’s Copa America team, with Rangers facing Brighton and Real Madrid in Ibrox friendlies.
