Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has reportedly become a shock loan target for Marseille.

According to French outlet Le10 Sport, the Colombian international is wanted rather audaciously on a temporary basis by the Ligue 1 side.

Morelos has been heavily linked with an exit from Ibrox this summer, with Lille having been the most mentioned team. It is claimed a £16 million bid was rejected by the Scottish giants (Times).

But now it appears Marseille, who return to the Champions League in 2020/21, want the 24-year-old, but aren’t wanting to facilitate a permanent transfer.

The publication say such a move for Marseille would be very complicated, with Rangers wanting a transfer for their talisman if he is to depart, but that ‘concrete discussions’ have commenced.
