Alfredo Morelos

Leicester & Borussia Dortmund among clubs targeting Rangers star Alfredo Morelos

As per a report from Sky Sports News, Leicester City are one of a host of clubs keen on the signature of Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.

Rangers standout

Morelos, a 22-year-old hitman, has been on Rangers’ books since the summer of 2017.

The Colombian international made the move to Ibrox for a fee in the region of £1 million, following a prolific stint in Finland with HJK.

And the minimal fee splashed out by Rangers on Morelos has since proved something of a masterstroke.

The gifted attacker has gone on to establish himself as a hit in Glasgow over the last two seasons, with the current campaign having proven particularly-productive for Morelos.

In 36 appearances across all competitions, the pacy South American has racked up a hugely-impressive 28 goals.

Morelos in-demand

And, as per the aforementioned report from Sky this evening, Morelos’ stellar form in front of goal has seen the 22-year-old added to the summer wishlists of a number of clubs across Europe.

In the Premier League, Leicester City are said to be extremely keen on the Rangers star.

The Foxes began scouting Morelos whilst former boss Claude Puel was still in charge, but the Frenchman’s replacement at the King Power, Brendan Rodgers, is also rumoured to be an admirer of the explosive attacker’s talents.

Rodgers would of course have seen Morelos in action on numerous occasions during his spell on the bench at Celtic.

Leicester, though, will have to battle it out with a number of German clubs if they intend to sign the Colombian come the summer.

Sky add that Borussia Dortmund lead a whole host of Bundesliga outfits in the hunt for Morelos.
