Rangers transfer news – Odds slashed on Alfredo Morelos exit after Champions League disaster, Mourinho's Roma in the mix

August 11, 2021

PORTO are odds-on favourites to clinch Alfredo Morelos' signature.

That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've priced the Portuguese heavyweights at 1/2 to sign Morelos before the transfer window closes on September 3.

Morelos has scored 95 goals and provided 43 assists in 184 appearances for Rangers since his £1million arrival from HJK Helsinki in 2017.

The Colombian played a significant role in guiding Steven Gerrard's side to their first Scottish Premiership title in a decade.

But the club's disastrous Champions League exit could accelerate his departure.

Reaching the Group phase of the competition would have landed Rangers a colossal £30m jackpot.

But Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to 10-man Malmo at Ibrox saw them drop into the Europa League play-offs.

And former Gers star Charlie Adam thinks that could hasten the sale of Morelos.

He told BBC Sportsound: "Do they have to sell players, do they have to do certain things? It's a huge blow for everybody.

"Financially they will be ok. There will be one or two they will look to sell, maybe a Borna Barisic or something.

"They'll want to keep Ryan Kent because he's a match winner. Maybe Morelos might go."

Morelos still has two years remaining on his contract, which expires in June 2023.

And recent reports have claimed that Rangers value their centre-forward at around £14.5m – which would represent a tidy profit for the Scottish outfit.

Porto lead a three-horse race for his signature at odds of 1/2 with Benfica close behind at 7s.

Jose Mourinho's Roma are outsiders of the field at 7/1 but it's unclear whether a move would hinge on Tammy Abraham's impending arrival.
