Reports in Colombia say Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos is on Newcastle’s summer shopping list. The 22-year-old netted 30 goals for the Gers in the season just gone and despite being sent off five times, has been attracting interest from around Europe.
A striker is on Rafael Benitez’s wanted list with uncertainty regarding Salomon Rondon’s proposed move from West Brom in doubt following the Baggies’ failure to earn promotion from the Championship.
Morelos could be available for as a little as £5m according to a report in Don Balon and is thought to have been highlighted by Benitez as a key target as he looks to fill out his squad, having also been tipped to move for Hoffenheim’s Joelinton.
The former HJK man is widely expected to leave Ibrox this summer and the Magpies may get their man with an early move for him.
