Rangers centre-forward Alfredo Morelos has discussed his potential exit from Ibrox.
The 22-year-old striker has admitted that he would like to play in a more competitive league, but there is nothing concrete yet to suggest he will leave in the summer.
He’s scored 29 goals in 47 games across all competitions this season for the Gers and has voiced his desire to play elsewhere.
“There is a lot of speculation about my possible departure, but there is nothing concrete yet. I know what there are many interested clubs asking and as soon as there is something official I will be announcing it,” Morelos said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“But I’m committed to Rangers just now. I’ve had a good season and many clubs are interested and hopefully everything will be done in the right way. I dream of playing in a much better, more competitive league.”
Morelos’ comments have gone down too well with pundit and ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton, who feels he’s yet to prove he is a class above the Scottish division.
He also pointed to his poor discipline record and he’s only just back from a four-game suspension.
“Hasn’t won anything… been sent off multiple times and dreams of playing in a ‘more competitive league’” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Morelos is undoubtedly a major talent and his goal record speaks for itself, but he’s perhaps provided more bad moments than good during his time at Ibrox.
It makes sense to cash in on the Colombia international if they can in the summer and his comments suggest he’s already halfway out the door.
Steven Gerrard’s team fortunately already have a replacement in Jermain Defoe, who has been directly involved in 15 goals in just 19 games.
Morelos has ambitions to play elsewhere and it would fascinating to see how he would fare in the Premier League, where he would have to get used to defenders targeting his short fuse.
