Our View: West Ham signing prolific South American for eight-figures would be Moyes masterstroke

Football Insider claims that West Ham boss David Moyes could sign Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos for a cut price £12 million fee this summer.

And if the Colombian does end up at the London Stadium for that price, it would be a masterstroke from Moyes.

The Hammers desperately need a new striker this summer.

Sebastien Haller has failed to fire. In truth, he hasn’t been given the right kind of support or service, however.

Meanwhile, Albian Ajeti is clearly not good enough for West Ham.

And Morelos could be absolutely ideal for the Hammers.

The 24-year-old has been in sensational form for Rangers since moving to Ibrox in the summer of 2017. And Steven Gerrard will surely be desperate not to lose him.

Stats

Morelos has racked up 77 goals and 29 assists in 137 games for the Gers. And this season, he has notched up 29 goals and 10 assists in 46 outings (Transfermarkt).

The South American does have a nasty streak, with seven red cards to his name during his time with Rangers. But that isn’t always a bad thing. A bit of passion and fire in the belly goes a long way in east London.

Just look at Paolo Di Canio.

Morelos can be inspirational. He is a maverick in every sense of the word. In other words, the 24-year-old is the kind of player who West Ham fans absolutely love. And he could end up being a hero at the London Stadium.

£12 million for Morelos could be an absolute steal.

And if West Ham have the chance to sign the Rangers ace for that amount, they cannot afford to miss out.
