​Lille president Lopez confirms interest cooled in Rangers striker Morelos

Lille president Gerard Lopez admits the club are not likely to sign Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.

The French club were strongly linked with the Gers man.

However, the signing of Jonathan David from Gent means they have acquired a promising young striker.

While he was coy on the matter, Lopez indicated Morelos may not be a priority now.

"Obviously Morelos is a good player," Gerard Lopez told BBC World Service.

"He's part of a list of players we've looked at, but we've made a move for another player, so we have something like 11 offensive players for four spots now.

"He's a player who is extremely effective and at this stage we're watching, but nothing's done."
