According to reports from the Scottish media, Rangers FC star player Alfredo Morelos is in the target of Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe FC.
The Chinese side made a solid bid of £11 million for the striker but the Gers refused, as they don’t want to let go of their marquee player.
Since the Colombian signed a three-year contract with the club back in June 2017, the 21-year-old boy is giving his best performances on the field and has already 13 goals in 27 appearances.
While facing the media he said, he was actually offered a deal by CSL side Guangzhou Evergrande at the beginning of his career in Rangers FC but he chose the Gers over the Chinese side and if any day he wants to move outside Scotland then he would like to play in a Premier League side.
Morelos said: “At the beginning of the year a Chinese team – Guangzhou Evergrande – made an offer for me, but Rangers rejected it.”
“The issue is already closed. The media here have speculated a lot after that, but everything was calm with me.”
“I didn’t talk to the chairman, I had a short conversation with the manager and the sports director, but it was about my performance.”
“All options for China are closed for now. I am focused on doing things well and continue to grow as a player and human being.”
He also said: “I like the English Premier League very much.”
“Scotland’s football is very close to the Premier League, even our league has a very similar name to it.”
“I know clubs from all over England will be watching me and that encourages me to do well.”
“Since the day I arrived at Rangers I have felt happy and I recently extended my contract until 2021. Playing every week has helped me enormously.”
“I’m doing a good job at Rangers and I have the backing of the coaching staff.”
“I’m ready for the call from Colombia. I have a positive mentality, if they call me it’s fine and if not, my opportunity will come.”
“I have played for Colombia at all levels up to the senior team. I am sure they follow all Colombians in Europe.”
“I have not had any communication with them, but I think they have been watching me.”
“But for now, my priority is to score goals for Rangers.”
