Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has become a star at Ibrox, and he's unsurprisingly attracting major interest in his signature as a result.

The Gers raided HJK Helsinki to sign Morelos in 2017, and he impressed in his first season with 18 goals in all competitions under Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murtty.

Last season though, Morelos took his game to another level under manager Steven Gerrard, smashing 30 goals in 48 games.

 

The problem is that Morelos managed to pick up a staggering 18 yellow cards and five reds, with his disciplinary issues becoming a major problem.

Still, there is interest in Morelos. The Daily Record report that Premier League duo Crystal Palace and West Ham United are both interested in signing the Colombian hitman.

West Ham may have just splashed the cash on Sebastien Haller, but with Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll gone, Manuel Pellegrini still needs another striker.

West Ham fans have subsequently taken to Twitter to react to the rumour, with many believing he would be a 'nightmare' due to his temper, and should be avoided at all costs.

Others think that Morelos would be a dream signing as he's a 'proper character', whilst his goalscoring record has also led some fans to believe he'd be a 'class signing' - though they'd have to pay Rangers a considerable fee.
