Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is perfect summer signing for Leicester

The influential striker has netted 28 goals in all competitions this season and Rangers look set to sell during the summer.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers began life in the East Midlands with a 2-1 Premier League defeat to Watford on Sunday.

The Foxes aren’t in any danger of being relegated this season and it will give the boss a chance to assess his squad.

It is fair to say that Rodgers will probably look for new recruits in most areas.

That will probably include up front.

Jamie Vardy is 32 whilst Kelechi Iheanacho has flopped since arriving from Manchester City.

One man who has been touted with a possible move to the King Power Stadium is Rangers talisman Alfredo Morelos.

 

It would be a bizarre twist of events should Rodgers return to Scotland to sign his former rivals’ best player.

According to Sky Sports, the Foxes are keen on signing the man with 28 goals this season.

The piece claims that Rangers managing director Stewart Robinson has said that Morelos is valued at the same as Moussa Dembele who left Celtic to join Lyon for £19.7 million during the summer.

If Robinson’s claim is to be believed then Leicester would be wise to act.

Strikers don’t come cheap. Morelos, however, has shown at Ibrox that he has all the ingredients to be the real deal.

Discipline has hampered his progress, but Rodgers is a master at curbing such enthusiasm.

The Foxes will struggle to get a striker as prolific as the Colombian for the money being quoted for Morelos.

Rodgers could steal a march on his rivals by signing the 22-year-old and he would be wise to move swiftly.

Dortmund are thought to hold an interest too but the lure of the Premier League might prove vital in Morelos’ decision.
