Last month, we covered claims from Portuguese newspaper Record that Crystal Palace were one of the clubs who had sent a scout to watch Rangers’ Europa League clash against FC Porto.
Saint-Étienne were also included in the list of clubs who were in the attendance to watch the clash between two sides in Portugal.
Le10 Sport now reports the French side have been observing the European market and Rangers star Alfredo Morelos is included in the list.
It’s claimed Ligue 1 club have scouted the Colombia international ‘multiple times’ in the European competition.
The striker has been one of the standout players for the Scottish club this season, scoring 15 goals and managing five assists in all competitions.
His statistics could be of interest for Saint-Étienne, who could be looking to bring in a centre-forward in January, especially if they decide to sell an attacker. However, it is impossible to say if Saint-Étienne would make an approach for the South American in the next window.
The report states Morelos’ price tag could be an issue for Saint-Étienne and they could only afford it by sanctioning sales of Lois Diony and Robert Beric.
Le10 Sport don’t mention any figure in their article, but suggestion that Morelos’ transfer fee could make it complicated for Saint-Étienne will come as a positive news for Rangers and Steven Gerrard.
