Hopefully they’re just making plans in case something happens with Alfie. Would be a kick in the nuts to lose him at this stage.

RANGERS have bid €10million for Amiens striker Moussa Konate, according to reports.

Gers have been linked with a move for the powerful striker as they prepare to face bids for Alfredo Morelos.

Steven Gerrard has admitted he would be ‘powerless’ to stop the sale of the goal scoring Colombian.

And French newspaper L'Equipe claim the Light Blues have sent an offer of just over £9m for Konate.

The 26-year-old striker is under contract with the Ligue 1 side until 2021.

But Amiens will have their mettle tested by a significant offer from the Ibrox side.

At this late stage we're effectively gambling Champions League chances for next season, a huge risk to take which if it fails could see us bring in a pile of money this season but miss out on even more next year.

There looks like there might be something to this, in which case Morelos is almost certainly for the off.

Let's hope we get full whack for him if he is.

Sory Kaba cost Midtjylland just under £3m. Wonder what Konaté is like compared to Kaba? Dijon and Amiens are two poor sides.

Amiens got Guarassy half the price Konaté is being rumoured. He keeps Konaté out the team.

If someone bids £20m for Alfie, we're not turning that down, ever.

That's our model and we have to live with it.

Let's just hope this Konate kid is at least as good.

Was going to same. Pure speculation but if we’ve received a bid for Alfie, we may have kept it quiet while we source a replacement. Then this gets leaked. I know nothing about this player but that’s a huge chunk of change for us. Kent as well?

I don't think Gerrard said 'something will break over the next few days' for no reason, he definitely wasn't on about Grezda!
Yes hes off. No doubt about it now. Been thinking the gaffer hasn't been looking his normal self. Put it down to all the FARE carry on but I wonder if this has been eating away at him as well.

I accept that, just this late in the window is a nightmare in the short and medium terms.

Intrigued to know who it is.

Milan? Inter? Marseille?
No idea.

But it has to be for serious money if we are forking out 10M or even close to that.

I hope he stays but just cant see it now. There is no way we are spending that kind of money on a 3rd choice striker. If the guys coming Alfie is going the other. I will be gutted
