Rangers have slapped a £20m valuation on striker Alfredo Morelos, who has been linked with a move to numerous clubs during the summer transfer window.

Reports suggest Steven Gerrard’s side will struggle to get their pricey valuation due to the forward's antics in pursuing a move away from the Ibrox Stadium.

Indeed, Gerrard has admitted Morelos has had his ‘head turned’ over interest from French side Lille.

The Scottish giants turned down a £16m bid from the Ligue 1 club, determined to get their £20m valuation of a player who ended the season the top scorer in the Europa League with 14 goals.

Further reports suggest that Rangers' Europa League rivals Bayer Leverkusen have made a 'concrete' offer to sign the Columbian international.

Newly-promoted Stuttgart are also reportedly keen on taking the goal-getter Germany.

In a fresh twist, however, bookmakers SkyBet have offered interesting odds on where Morelos will end up next, with Brighton in the betting - here’s how the full field looks:

Lille (6/4), Porto (5/1), Aston Villa (9/1), Bayer Leverkusen (10/1), Borussia Monchengladbach (10/1, Brighton (10/1), Sevilla (10/1), Shalke (12/1), West Brom (25/1) and Leeds United (33/1).

The 24-year-old striker has been with Rangers since 2017, netting 79 times in 142 appearances.
