Rangers to bank over £20m for Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo as transfer twists emerge - Chris Jack
Rangers will receive over £20million if they cash in on Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo this summer as clubs start to emerge in the race for their signatures, according to Chris Jack.
Writing on The National website on 23 June, reliable journalist Jack reported that Sevilla are in pole position to sign Morelos, 26, this summer and discussions are expected about a potential move to La Liga.
It is understood that Aribo, 25, is wanted by Crystal Palace, Fulham and Nottingham Forest and “a move to England is now on the cards” for the former Charlton midfielder.
Aribo and Morelos are both in the final year of their contracts at Ibrox and Jack claims “Rangers have a weakened bargaining position” due to this.
However, he still expects the Gers to net over £20million if the two of them move on this summer.
Heaps of cash
We hope that Rangers are able to get way more than £20million for Aribo and Morelos.
Both players are absolute assets to the club and are easily the best at what they do in the whole Scottish Premiership.
If they’re being wanted by teams in the Premier League and La Liga, they should be able to fetch the club around £20million each – especially when you consider how much Everton paid for Nathan Patterson in January.
However, short-sightedness by Rangers means that the club will get a minimal amount of cash for the players.
If Sevilla are the only club keen on Morelos, we’ll be a bit worried.
Aribo’s got plenty of suitors in England so a bidding war could emerge for the Nigeria international and that should bump up the price that he leaves for.
However, Sevilla seem to be the sole runners in the race to sign Morelos this summer and that means that if they play hard ball, they could get him for a very reduced fee.
We can’t believe Rangers have allowed it to come to this point, in all honesty.
