Long-term West Ham transfer target Alfredo Morelos is set to be released by Rangers when his contract expires this summer.

Rangers confirmed via their official Twitter account yesterday that Alfredo Morelos will be released next month, along with four other stalwarts of the club.

This may well be of interest to Hammers boss David Moyes who is allegedly on the hunt for a new striker this summer.

Morelos, 26, was a player who West Ham chased over the past year or so, and were once prepared to pay around £20 million to bring the Rangers striker to the London Stadium from Ibrox.

And if the Scot really does rate the 11-capped Colombia international, it would be no surprise to see him bring the striker to the club on a free transfer this summer…

The 26-year-old will leave Ibrox when his contract runs down next month.

Rangers confirmed the news via their official Twitter account yesterday:

Morelos has a fantastic goalscoring record for Rangers, with 124 goals and 58 assists in 268 games to his name. He has bagged 175 goals in 353 career outings as well (Transfermarkt).

However, there are real question marks as to whether he would actually be good enough to succeed in the Premier League.

West Ham are at a stage now where we don’t need to be signing players like Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos anymore.

David Moyes should be setting his sights a lot higher this summer as far as I’m concerned.
