Brendan Rodgers should hand Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos Premier League opportunity

Summer signings will surely be on the horizon for the new Foxes boss.

Brendan Rodgers arrived in the East Midlands yesterday to take over as the new manager of Leicester City, replacing Claude Puel.

Rodgers’ desire to return to the Premier League has obviously outweighed the willingness to stay at Celtic Park.

The new Foxes boss watched his new charges beat Brighton 2-1 last night and he will have been pleased with the performance.

With 10 games left of the 2018/19 campaign, Rodgers is likely to use the rest of this season to see who will feature going forwards and who doesn’t.

Recruitment drive

It seems unlikely that the boss would have taken the job if there wasn’t going to be any funds available in the summer.

The squad is decent but a few additions will be needed ahead of next season.

 

One area that could need an injection is up front.

Jamie Vardy is 32, whilst Kelechi Iheanacho has proved to be a real flop at the club.

In a bizarre turn of events, Rodgers might choose to get himself a talisman from the Scottish Premiership…but, not from Celtic.

Rangers hotshot Alfredo Morelos looks destined to play in one of Europe’s biggest leagues at some point, so why not the Premier League.

The 22-year-old is the SPL’s top scorer with 15 goals this season, with his tally up at 23 in all competitions.

Some Celtic fans have not reacted well to Rodgers’ departure but he might be forgiven if he returns to Scotland to strip Rangers of their prized asset.

The Colombian has all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League and Rodgers could be the perfect man to curb his poor discipline.

Morelos would fit in with a relatively young squad at Leicester and it seems unlikely that he would break the bank.

Pace, passion and a keen eye for goal are all typical of Morelos and he would become a real hit with the Leicester faithful.

Rodgers could do a lot worse.
