Odds slashed on Rangers' Alfredo Morelos joining Fiorentina this transfer window

Lille remain marginal favourites for El Buffalo

Serie A side Fiorentina have emerged as new contenders to sign Alfredo Morelos, with bookies cutting odds on the prospective move.

Sky Bet have cut odds from 14/1 into 9/2 that the Rangers striker leaves the Ibrox side for Italy this transfer window, following a flurry of bets.

In the last 48 hours, 41% of all bets in the market have backed Giuseppe Iachini’s side to land Morelos before transfer dealings are done.

That means only previous favourites Lille are more likely at the bookmakers, although now only marginally at 4/1.

Brighton, Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen and Porto are clustered in the market as 12/1 possible destinations.

The Premier League trio of West Ham (14/1), Aston Villa (18/1) and Newcastle (20/1) all follow next in the market, with a move to Leeds currently 33/1.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “This is not the news Rangers fans will want to be reading with Kemar Roofe’s recent injury, but there’s a new contender in the market for striker Alfredo Morelos.

“Whilst Lille remains the marginal favourite for El Buffalo, Fiorentina have seen plenty of support from punters this week.”

Alfredo Morelos next club odds:
Lille – 4/1
Fiorentina – 9/2
Brighton – 12/1
Sevilla – 12/1
Bayer Leverkusen – 12/1
Porto – 12/1
West Ham – 14/1
Newcastle – 20/1
Leeds – 33/1
