Lille have held talks with Rangers regarding striker Alfredo Morelos but the Ibrox club have not received an offer from the French club.

Discussions with the Ligue 1 side took place earlier this summer and Rangers are believed to be holding firm to their valuation of the Colombian.

French media reported Lille had reached an agreement on terms with Morelos.

The 24-year-old has scored 77 goals in 129 Rangers games, finishing as the club’s top scorer three years in a row.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard said after Saturday’s 2-0 friendly win against visitors Coventry City he did not have “enough options” up front and was not looking for a “short term” recruit in attack.

Morelos played for an hour, while Jermain Defoe did not feature as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
