Alfredo Morelos

912 posts in this topic

Rangers have targeted young Columbian striker Alfredo Morelos and are believed to be confident of completing the signing subject to a work permit being granted. 

The promising 20 year old Columbian, who made his debut for the national Under 20 team in 2015, has being playing in Finland for HJK and has caught the eye with an incredible goals tally which has earned him the nickname of 'Goaleador'. 

Morelos scored 3 goals in 6 Europa League appearances for HJK and scored 30 goals in 43 appearances for them in 2016. 

He appears to be the perfect foil for the more physical Eduardo Herrera who Rangers are also confident of signing subject to work permit clearance. 

His signing would be yet another indication of Pedro Caixinha's determination to remodel his squad and Rangers fans will be hoping Morelos can replicate his scoring form should the deal be completed.

Used to the freezing cold in Finland, shouldn't have issues with the weather in Scotland. His goal scoring sounds impressive. Don't  know a thing about him. Sounds promising!

We badly need strikers currently at the club we have no one who you can trust to bag us enough goals to win the League.

Stats are decent and like major whitey said the weather wouldn't be a problem! Experience in Europe too and young sounds like the perfect combination for us!

A bit of a left field target, but he sounds promising. I wonder what the fee would be? £500k?

Good stats... with Wikipedia saying 11 goals in 12 appearances in 2017 alone.

Scores with his head, scores with his feet, looks like a poacher who would get a nosebleed if he crossed over the half way line back into our own half...

Exactly what we need tbh.

Wonder if he was a recommendation from JJ?

Either way, stats sound great for this guy!

What's the Rangers Observer?

A younger player with huge potential like this is one that excites me. Hopefully this gathers some pace.

Ok, only the 3 minute video to go on but his positional sense and anticipation certainly look impressive.

Don't think that would be the only thing giving him a nosebleed.

Looks promising: decent goals record, different to what we have, pacy, eye for a goal, will be used to playing on crappy plastic pitches and ticks the hot prospect from Scandinavia box people have been so desperate for us to address. 

Excited about this one!

He does look like an all action type of striker, direct, knows where the goal is and looks like a man possessed when he scores.
