Rangers FC star linked with Napoli move


Rangers FC have big plans for the coming season.

Celtic have dominated Scottish football in recent years but the hope at Ibrox is that this is about to change.

Neil Lennon's side have hopes of making it 10-straight league titles - something that Steven Gerrard's side are determined to stop.

If they're to do that, Rangers will need to strengthen in the transfer market - something that they're already showing signs of doing.

But while incomings are a priority, there could also be a key player heading for the exit door.

That man is Alfredo Morelos.

According to Calcio Napoli, as quoted by Glasgow Live, the striker's representatives have offered him to Italian side Napoli.

Morelos has been widely linked with a move away from Rangers this summer with interest mounting.

Napoli's interest is likely to depend on their pursuit of Victor Osmihen, who is attracting plenty of attention after impressive for Lille.

But speaking of the situation, Morelos' agent has insisted that the Rangers star is hoping for a move to Italy.

He said: "(Victor) Osimhen? Great footballer, if the attacker has arrived in the city and talks to the club, then it means that there is an excellent chance for it to be closed.

“The possible arrival of the Nigerian excludes the commitment of another attacker. I’m talking about Alfredo Morelos. Last year he was the top scorer in Scotland and this year he scored a lot with Glasgow Rangers.

“I had proposed him to Giuntoli, after he had given me his approval.

“He is a very valuable player for whom there are different clubs interested, especially in the Premier League, but his preference is to move to Italy.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Alfredo Morelos has been outstanding for Steven Gerrard's side but if the interest in him turns into something more substantial, the club will need a suitable replacement.

If the striker does have his sights set on a move, then it's in the club's best interests to move him on and attract a big a fee as possible.

The last thing that Steven Gerrard needs is a player who isn't fully committed to the cause at Ibrox.

If Rangers are to challenge for the title next term then they'll need everyone on their game - most of all their star striker.
