Morelos' Premier League hint should prompt Newcastle to take January gamble
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has dropped a major hint about his future.
According to The Daily Record, Morelos expects bids to come in for him this January and has opened up about his dream of playing Premier League football.
After netting his third goal in two games after coming back from suspension, Morelos opened up on his future.
He said: “It’s very likely there are several teams looking at me and that there will be offers, but there is nothing concrete yet.
“I have to wait until the last game of the year is played and will try to end 2018 in a positive way.
“My dream is to play in the English Premier League. It’s very similar to the football in Scotland.”
This should prompt goal-shy Newcastle United to take a punt on Morelos.
The hot-headed forward has scored 20 goals in 34 games this season, but has also picked up 13 yellow cards and three red cards.
This means that the Magpies would be taking a gamble on him and Rafa Benitez would have to try to tame him.
But the 22-year-old is young, hungry and knows where the net is, having proven himself in Scotland.
With Joselu struggling for goals, Salomon Rondon needs a partner to take the pressure off.
Morelos could be the natural goal scorer that Newcastle need to climb away from the relegation zone.
Although it would be a risk, Newcastle must consider the Colombia international this January.
