Rangers fear loss of main striker in January

Rangers fear that they may lose their main striker Alfredo Morelos in the January transfer window.

The 22-year old is the top scorer in the Scottish Premiership this season with 20 goals, notching his latest effort in the home draw with Hibernian on Boxing Day.

The Ibrox club are desperate to keep him, but he has made clear that his ambitions lie elsewhere, after admitting that his dream is to play in the Premier League.

Last year Rangers turned down several big money moves for Morelos from China, but the player is expecting further interest in him to materialise once the window opens again, and this time the money may be hard to turn down for the Rangers Board.

Morelos wants to add to the single cap he earned playing for Columbia this year, and believes that a move to a more high profile league would help him attract the eye of the national selectors more.
