Rangers still have Kemar Roofe, Cedric Itten and Jermain Defoe to call upon which could allow them to let Morelos leave if their valuation is met.

According to the Daily Record, the Portuguese side were impressed by the Colombian striker was when they came up against him in the Europa League last season.

On Saturday, Wolves announced they shattered their transfer record to sign highly-rated 18-year-old Silva.

Silva, who signed a five year deal, only made his debut for Porto last season and scored once in 12 appearances.
