Newcastle, West Ham: 5 clubs who should sign Morelos amid Sevilla bid

Alfredo Morelos has been linked with a move away from Rangers for what feels like an eternity, and according to the latest reports, Sevilla have made a bid for the striker.

The La Liga giants are in the market for a centre-forward this summer, with Sevilla set to allow Anthony Martial to return to Manchester United after a disappointing loan move to Andalusia, and the Spanish side have now reportedly made a bid for Morelos.

With further reports claiming that Rangers will be open to selling their star striker this summer if Morelos rejects the club’s latest contract offer, Sevilla’s bid could stand with a chance of being accepted depending on how internal affairs unfold in the coming weeks.

Indeed, Morelos has been one of the most productive strikers in Scotland and Europe as a whole since moving to Rangers, and with a transfer on the table yet again this summer, which five clubs could the Colombian international become a superstar at following this reported bid from Sevilla?

Benfica are one of the biggest and most decorated clubs in Europe, and this summer has seen the Portuguese giants play a role in the biggest deal of the summer as of writing, with star striker Darwin Nunez signing for Liverpool in an £85m deal.

With a new attacker needed up-front and Benfica already spending the Nunez money on the likes of David Neres and Enzo Fernandez, Morelos could be an ideal player to replace the Uruguayan international for the Lisbon-based side, with the Rangers star last year heavily linked with a move to Portugal in the form of FC Porto.

Brighton & Hove Albion have established themselves as a solid Premier League side ever since their promotion back to the division in 2017, yet the meme that the Seagulls need a top striker has remained ever since, and Morelos is just too good an option to pass up on this summer.

The Rangers star is more than capable of impressing in the Premier League, and with Brighton looking to spend big this summer following the sale of Yves Bissouma, Morelos is the perfect player to lead the line for Graham Potter’s side next season.

Another Premier League side who are reportedly looking at signing a striker and who have actually been linked with Morelos in recent months is Newcastle United, with Eddie Howe looking to add to more quality to the Toon’s current crop of forwards in Chris Wood and Callum Wilson.

Indeed, Morelos could be a big-name signing for Newcastle and might play a big role for the Magpies ahead of this exciting new era for the club in the coming years, with the striker seemingly only getting better with age and now reaching the stage of his career where he could shine in the Premier League.

The most left-field option on this list yet one that could be more realistic than you can imagine, Union Berlin are set to lose star striker Taiwo Awoniyi to Nottingham Forest for a club-record sale of £20m, and with the Bundesliga side once again in Europe next season, Morelos seems like a suitable option to replace the Nigerian.

After all, the Bundesliga is a massive upgrade on the Scottish Premiership, and playing European football with one of the continent’s most exciting and unique sides could be an interesting prospect for Morelos.

Just like Brighton, West Ham have been desperate for a top striker for some time, and with the Hammers once again competing in Europe next season, this summer is the perfect time for David Moyes to land that star attacker, with Morelos ideal for the role.

With West Ham one of the best-supported clubs in England and Morelos’ style of play something that will get the London Stadium faithful excited, the striker could become a quick fan favourite in the English capital next season should the Irons make a move for the striker.
