Alan Hutton has claimed that he wouldn’t be surprised if a number of Premier League clubs were eyeing up moves for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
The Colombian has been in impressive form for the Gers so far this term, hitting 29 goals in all competitions.
And Hutton believes that the club could face a battle to keep hold of him in the next transfer window.
As per Football Insider, Morelos was a target for both Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur last month, and Hutton foresees similar interest in the coming months.
Speaking on talkSPORT, as per the Scottish Sun, he said: “If I’m going to be honest he is a top top class player. He has all the attributes to be a top player.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if some of the bigger clubs are looking at him, he scores goals, he holds the ball up well, he links up.
“He is quick, strong and he is a top player.”
Will Morelos leave in the summer?
At this stage, all we can do is hope and pray that the answer is no.
The Colombian is the most dangerous talent in Scotland, and losing him would be a hammer blow for Steven Gerrard and his men.
It’s not just the manner and frequency with which Morelos scores goals though. His all-round play, as alluded to by Hutton here, makes him far more than just a goal machine.
As per Wyscout
, he has won 5.79 aerial duels and made 5.04 successful dribbles per game so far this term, and his pass completion rate of 78.2% isn’t bad either.
Ripping that kind of talent out of the side would be a huge loss, and let’s just keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t come to that.
