Rangers player Morelos eyes Premier League transfer
Colombia and Rangers star Alfredo Morelos has rejected talk of a move to China, insisting that a deal to Asia is off of the agenda and instead has talked up a move to the Premier League. A number of English clubs are vying for Morelos' signature, including West Ham, Everton, Swansea City and Southampton.
Morelos has caught the eye north of the border in Scotland with a number of impressive performances leading the line for Rangers' attack. The 21-year-old, who has a contract until 2021, admitted to the press that a move to England is of interest: "I like the English Premier League very much. Scotland’s football is very close to the Premier League, even our league has a very similar name to it.
I know clubs from all over England will be watching me and that encourages me to do well."
Morelos has appeared for Colombia's under-20 side and prior to moving to Rangers, he joined HJK on a permanent basis, one of Finland's top clubs.
