Rangers transfer news: Steven Gerrard expecting bids for striker Alfredo Morelos after he reveals Premier League ‘dream’

Steven Gerrard is braced for January bids for Rangers’ star striker Alfredo Morelos.

The Colombian scored his 20th goal of the season against Hibernian on Boxing Day.

Steven Gerrard is expecting bids for Alfredo Morelos

Speaking to reporters in his homeland this week, Morelos suggested a big-money move could be on the cards in the transfer window, revealing his dream is to play in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old 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.”

Alfredo Morelos has 20 goals already this season

Morelos was the subject of an £8million offer from Beijing Renhe at the start of 2018 and Gerrard admits he would not be surprised to see fresh interest in the coming weeks, but insisted he is going nowhere.

Gerrard said: “I’m expecting bids. He’s a top player, he’s scored 20 goals before the turn of the year. I expect him to go on and achieve 30.

“I’d be more surprised if there is no bids to be honest.

“I’m sure there will be other bids for other players too. That’s what happens when you’re surrounded by good footballers.”
