Alfredo Morelos is on a shortlist of January targets for French side Saint-Etienne, according to reports in France.

And Rangers will not sanction a January departure of Morelos , who will only let the Colombian international leave for a big-money fee.

French website LeProgres report that Claude Puel’s side have sent scouts to watch Morelos, with the Rangers star also linked with the Ligue 1 boss’ old club, Leicester City.

Villa have been heavily linked with a move for the 23-year-old, who scored a 93rd minute winner for Colombia in a friendly against Peru on Saturday.

 

Morelos has been in fine form this season and that goal was his 23rd of the season – nine of those coming for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

Predictably, Gerrard and new sporting director Ross Wilson have issued a firm ‘not for sale’ message to Villa and other potential suitors.

Morelos has 70 goals in 117 appearances for Rangers and has also turned out for HJK Helsinki and Independiente Medellin over the course of his career to date.
