Selling Alfredo Morelos to Frankfurt could land Rangers a huge sum

Alfredo Morelos of Rangers arrives prior to the Ladbrokes Scottish Premier League between Celtic and at Ibrox Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers could get a massive payout by selling Alfredo Morelos to cash-rich German side.

Rangers won't want to lose Alfredo Morelos this summer.

After all, the 22-year-old netted a whopping 30 goals last season, despite getting one or two or five red cards and missing a chunk of it through suspension.

The fiery Colombian is a massive asset for Steven Gerrard and the Rangers manager will want to keep him.

But if the latest rumour is true, the Gers might be willing to punt him to Germany.

 

That is because according to The Record, Eintracht Frankfurt are back in for the South American hitman - and this time they have cash to burn.

The Bundesliga side pocketed a combined £107 million for the sales of Sebastien Haller and Luke Jovic to West Ham and Real Madrid respectively.

Rangers will know this, so surely they can demand a staggering fee from Frankfurt if they're serious about signing Morelos, which they should be because they badly need a goalscorer.

Celtic picked up a tidy £19.7 million for Moussa Dembele last summer but, given how healthy the German club's finances are, the Gers shouldn't be accepting a penny less.

Dembele's best season at Parkhead was no better than Morelos's in terms of goals - the Frenchman also hit the 30-goal mark two years ago - and therefore £20 million should be the starting point.
