Fans of Crystal Palace have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which claims that Palace, as well as Leicester City, Newcastle United and Aston Villa, are interested in signing Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos this summer.
According to reports in Goal, Rangers have stated that they would ask for at least £35 million for the Columbian international, however, with a value of just £13.5million (as per Transfermarkt), it would appear that Steven Gerrard’s side would do extremely well in achieving their asking price, with former Rangers striker Barry Ferguson claiming that Morelos is worth between £8-£10million.
Goal also reports that along with Crystal Palace, Leicester, Newcastle and Villa are also interested in the striker, who has scored 12 goals in 26 Scottish Premiership appearances so far this season, while Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Inter Milan are reportedly among the European clubs tracking the 23-year-old’s progress.
In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by CPFC News HQ on Twitter, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the potential move, with many calling for Palace to do all they can in signing the forward, while others have questioned Morelos’ mentality, as since the striker moved to Rangers, he has received 36 yellow cards, four of which turned into reds, as well as three straight red cards.
