Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has suggested that Liverpool are aware of him and the progress he is making in Scotland.
The Colombian has been in fine form at Ibrox this season, hitting 28 goals in all competitions for Steven Gerrard’s men.
And he has hinted that he could be tempted by a move away from the club at the end of the season, should the right offer come in for him.
The 23-year-old was linked with a potential transfer in the January window, with both Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur, said to be keen, as per Football Insider.
But Morelos has mentioned the Reds as a possible interested party.
“I imagine that is the case with the coach we have, who played for Liverpool for so long. I imagine he has friends and directors who come to the games, as well as scouts from other teams.
“It’s a motivation to keep doing well. There are many interested clubs, let’s wait until the end of the season to see which leagues are asking for me and then I can make a decision.
“If God grants me the opportunity to go to a good club, it will happen.”
What does this mean for Rangers?
If we’re being honest, it doesn’t sound too positive.
There’s a fair bit to unpack here, but perhaps the most worrying part of all is that last off the cuff remark about moving to a “good club”.
Whether it’s a matter of translation, or whether it looks worse written down than it would have had we heard it from Morelos’ mouth directly, that comment gives the impression of a player who is fully aware of his abilities and eager to test them elsewhere.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having ambitions, and it’s as plain as the nose on your face that a striker who has hit a goal every 88 minutes this term is likely top be attracting interest from a whole host of clubs, but the fear here will be that Morelos is looking to move sooner rather than later, much to the detriment of the Gers.
