Graeme Murty Says China isn’t Only Country With Clubs Interested in Alfredo Morelos

Graeme Murty Says China isn’t Only Country With Clubs Interested in Alfredo Morelos

Graeme Murty says China isn’t the only country with clubs interested in signing Alfredo Morelos.

The Colombian striker is at the centre of one of dailyrecord.co.uk‘s biggest stories today as they report that an “unnamed Chinese club” have bid close to £7million for him.

That’s been rejected by Rangers, according to the story, but Murty expects that it won’t be the only interest in his hitman.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of Rangers’ Scottish Cup tie with Fraserburgh tomorrow, Murty said:

So the interest is real – but Rangers aren’t prepared to play ball with this deal at the moment.

Murty added Jason Cummings to his squad earlier this month so does have an alternative to Morelos.

But his comments suggest that he may attempt to play the pair together going forward rather than keeping one on the bench.

Cummings got his Ibrox career off to a good start with a goal in his second appearance at the weekend against Ross County.

Yet it looks like Morelos is still the number one striker – earned in a big part because of his 13 goals in all competitions this campaign.
