RANGERS striker Alfredo Morelos, who has been linked with Crystal Palace, AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt, has rejected a whopping £30million offer from China.

The controversial Colombian has knocked back the lucrative contract from Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune, according to Sky Sports News.

The three-year deal would have seen Morelos earn £10million-a-year before tax.

Hebei were willing to match the Ibrox side’s valuation of the hitman, understood to be in excess of £15million, although no official bid has been received, reported the satellite giants.

The 23-year-old attacker, who scored 30 goals last season and was also red-carded FIVE times, signed a new deal in March until 2023.

Govan gaffer Steven Gerrard has already admitted he wants the prolific Morelos to be part of his plans for Gers, but believes it is time he spoke up for himself and declared his intentions for the future.

Selhurst Park manager Roy Hodgson was reported to have the player in his sights, but dropped interest when he landed  Jordan Ayew in a cut-price £2.5million deal from Swansea, as Scotzine reported last week.
