Rangers allegedly close to losing Alfredo Morelos to Porto but West Ham should hijack the deal

Rangers ace Alfredo Morelos is allegedly close to joining Porto for around £12 million and we think that West Ham should try to hijack the deal.

Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

The problem for the Scot is that funds are tight at West Ham.

So the Scot will have to make sure that any prospective signing not only has a lot of quality but is also available for a reasonable fee.

Rangers ace Morelos perfect for West Ham

The Hammers should not hesitate to try and bring the 25-year-old to East London.

David Moyes will have to act fast, however.

The Colombian hitman is allegedly closing in on a move to FC Porto:

Pedro Almeida is usually bang on the money with transfers involving Portuguese or Brazilian clubs.

So we should certainly pay attention to his latest claim regarding Morelos.

€14 million (£12 million) for the Rangers striker represents exceptional value.

The 25-year-old has racked up 94 goals and 43 assists in 182 appearances for the Gers (Transfermarkt).

He is clinical when presented with a goalscoring opportunity and he has great movement as well.

Morelos also has an aggressive side to his game, a nasty edge if you will. West Ham fans love someone with that kind of character. You need look no further than the likes of Paolo Di Canio and Marko Arnautovic as proof of that.

The Colombian could be a real hit at the London Stadium. Signing him for around £12 million would mean that any risk involved in the deal is greatly minimised.
