Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos has had a very successful first-half of the season in Glasgow.

The 21-year-old has scored 12 goals in 25 games, and that is a fine record when you consider the fact that he was out for a spell with a hip injury.

Morelos signed a three year deal with the Light Blues in the summer, and he has proved to be by far the best signing that was made by former manager Pedro Caixinha.

The Colombian hasn’t let the departure of Caixinha affect his play, in fact he seems to be playing better than ever.

This was shown in the 4-2 victory over Corinthians in the Florida Cup, where Morelos showed his predatory abilities with two goals.

Clubs in England will no doubt be taking notice of how well a young player in a foreign country has adapted, and may well be preparing bids in the January transfer window for the player.

Football Insider exclusively revealed in October that Aston Villa were keeping a close eye on the ex-HJK Helsinki forward while in action for the Gers and that the Glasgow club were bracing themselves for a bid.

Rangers have to reject any bids if they are made – no matter what.

They struggled when Morelos was injured and would find it difficult to replace his goals.

The fact that he still has two-and-a-half years on his contract may mean that the Light Blues are able to keep the player at the club until the end of the season, but it wouldn’t be surprising if bids are made in January.
