Rangers ‘open to selling’ Alfredo Morelos with Aston Villa linked with forward

Villa could make a bid for the Rangers striker this summer

Rangers are reportedly open to selling striker Alfredo Morelos this summer.

That’s according to 90 Min, which claims the Glasgow club will look to sell the Colombian if they can’t agree a new contract.

Morelos’ current contract at Ibrox expires in less than a year, leaving his future in Scotland uncertain.

Morelos has 12 months left on his Gers contract

Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Morelos, and it’s a move which would see the 26-year-old reunited with his old boss Steven Gerrard.

It’s claimed that if the Gers cannot agree a deal, they will consider selling Morelos, and that could give Villa the chance they need, if indeed they do want to sign the striker this summer.

Phillips ‘bid’

Elsewhere, Villa are said to have made a formal bid to sign Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips.

The defensive midfielder was linked with a move to Villa Park earlier in the summer, and Football Insider say a bid has now been submitted.

It’s also claimed West Ham have also put in an offer, while Manchester City are ‘in contact’.

The Citizens are said to be favourites to pull off a deal, given their econmic resources, but Villa are believed to be pushing for a deal.
