Rennes eye €15m-rated Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos

Rennes are interested in signing Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, according to Foot Mercato.

The Rouges et Noirs have been trying to sign Amiens hotshot Serhou Guirassy, but the two clubs can’t agree a fee.

An offer of €12m was submitted for Guirassy, 24, but Reims turned it down.

Rennes have turned their attention to Morelos, the second highest top scorer in the 2019-20 SPL season.

Morelos joined Rangers from HJK Helsinki for €1.2m in 2017 and has gone on to score 77 goals in 137 matches.

Despite some disciplinary issues, Morelos is a well-rounded striker and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has blocked an exit several times.

But the Scottish side have agreed to let Morelos go this summer if anyone meets their €15m valuation.

Foot Mercato reports that Rennes are ready to make an offer approaching €15m for 24-year-old Morelos.

However, Premier League sides are also keen on the Colombian international and could provide competition for Rennes.
