A £20 million fee has been widely mooted for Morelos, although Rangers' valuation is likely to exceed that given his form and the fact they would not want to sell him midway through a campaign in which the Gers are competing for a first Premiership title in nine years.

That would still be a relative snip for Premier League clubs such as Aston Villa, who spent in excess of £100 million on players in the summer window alone.
