Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos could be a success at Fiorentina, according to comments from Massimo Donati in The Sunday Post.

Serie A outfit Fiorentina are interested in signing Morelos from Rangers in the summer transfer window, according to The Sunday Post.

The publication has claimed that Rangers want at least £18.75 million as transfer fee for the striker and have already turned down a bid of £16.25m from French club Lille.

Former Celtic midfielder and ex-Kilmarnock assistant manager rates Morelos highly, and the Italian believes that the 24-year-old Colombia international striker could be a success at Fiorentina.

Donati told The Sunday Post about Morelos: “I could see this one happen, I really could. I know Morelos very well. He is a player who has good technical qualities, in every area of the game.

“But his real strength is his nose for goals. This is a great thing that many more famous forwards than him do not possess.

“I think he could be very happy at Fiorentina as he would play with Federico Chiesa and Franck Ribery, two extraordinary players who could give him many assists. With their support, I think he could be a big success in Florence.”

Should Rangers sell Alfredo Morelos?

Morelos is one of the best strikers in the Scottish Premiership and an important figure at Rangers.

However, the Gers do not have to rely on the Colombian too much anymore, as they have Kemar Roofe, Cedric Itten and Jermain Defoe in their squad now.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has a number of striker-options in his squad now, but Morelos is a big player, and him staying at Ibrox will only enhance the Gers’ chances of winning the Scottish Premiership title this season.
