Rangers have turned down an improved £8m bid from Chinese club Beijing Renhe for striker Alfredo Morelos, Sky Sports News understands.

On Tuesday, Sky Sports News reported how the Chinese club had offered £7m upfront for the striker.

Gers boss Graeme Murty previously confirmed there was interest in the Colombian forward from a Chinese Super League club, but that no side had met the Glasgow club's valuation of the 21-year-old.

Morelos has scored 13 times for Rangers since his £1.5m transfer from HJK Helsinki last summer, and is the club's top scorer this season.

We understand the striker is not one of Rangers' best paid players and is keen to discuss a move to the Chinese club.

The Ibrox club are not keen to sell Morelos without a replacement lined up, with Murty saying on Tuesday: "We have to make sure we're making good, footballing decisions. Taking Alfredo out of our squad without a ready-made replacement to strengthen us is not a decision I'm prepared to make."
