There are reports in the Columbia media today that Newcastle will launch a £20M bid for 22-year-old 3 times capped Columbian International forward Alfredo Morelos.
Morelos signed a three-year deal with Rangers from HJK Helsinki in June 2017 for an undisclosed fee, thought to be £1M – so this would be a massive profit for the Scottish Premiership club.
He had a great season for Rangers last season and in 48 total games he scored 30 goals and had 11 assists and there are reported to be a number of clubs interested in him.
While at HJK Helsinki, he played 62 games and scored 46 goals with 13 assists – so he can score the goals and create them too.
And while at Rangers for the last two seasons he has played 91 games with 48 goals and 19 assists although the league north of the border is a lot different than the English Premier league in class and skill.
Columbian outlet DonBalon claim that Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez wants to sign the player this summer.

Marseille, Leicester and Borussia Dortmund and Leicester are all interested in the player.
But he has been controversial too over the last two seasons with 5 red cards so that may be something will look at before trying to sign the player.
We are linked with a lot of players who are quite expensive.
We’re not sure if these will be targets if Ashley remains the Newcastle owner or they will become targets if Sheikh Khaled is successful in buying the club.
