Paul Robinson heaped praise on Everton for pursuing Rangers attacker Alfredo Morelos.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 admitted that while it’s difficult to comment on the Toffees’ transfer targets due to their lack of manager, Morelos would solve their goalscoring problems.

Football Insider recently revealed that the Toffees have set their sights on the Gers forward with them having scouted him in recent weeks.

Robinson pointed out that Morelos has scored goals for fun in Scotland and someone of his ilk is exactly what the Toffees need.

When asked if Morelos would be the Toffees’ dream signing, Robinson told Football Insider: “He scores goals for fun in Scotland and he did so at the weekend.

“It’s gonna be hard to link players to Everton when they haven’t got a manager as mindsets could change when a manager is appointed.

“I think it’s unfair to link players to the Toffees but someone of his ilk would definitely ease their goalscoring problem.” 

The 23-year-old has scored 27 goals in 33 outings this season with the Colombian also having racked up nine assists as well.

Morelos has been at Ibrox since joining from Finnish side HJK Helsinki in July 2017 and is contracted to stay until 2023. 

The Toffees have struggled for goals this season with them only scoring 20 in their opening 17 league matches of the season.

The Merseysiders are currently without a permanent manager following the dismissal of Marco Silva and Duncan Ferguson is currently in temporary charge of the first-team.
