Morris is available on a free transfer after being released by The Blues and has also been linked with a switch to Blackburn Rovers.
Premiership new boys Portsmouth are also keen on the 24-year-old with Redknapp expressing his eagerness to lure Morris to Fratton Park.
Redknapp is striving to juggle his finances to ensure he does not over-stretch his budget and reports had suggested he was baulking at Morris's demands.
But the Pompey chief has rubbished the rumours and insists Morris is not pricing himself out of a move to the South Coast.
"That is simply not true and it is scandalous to say that he wants big money to come here," said Redknapp.
"I just do not know where these suggestions have come from."
Redknapp is also optimistic that he can wrap up the signing of Serbo-Montenegrin defender Dejan Stefanovic within the next few days.
Stefanovic is believed to have agreed personal terms to return to The Premiership with Pompey haggling over a fee with his club, Vitesse Arnhem.
