Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has revealed he wants to leave the club and make the step up to a more competitive league.

Morelos has been a big hit at Ibrox since arriving in a £1m deal HJK Helsinki in 2017, scoring 63 goals in 112 games for the club so far.

This season he is their top goal scorer once again, with 15 goals in 21 games to date not only putting him joint top of Rangers’ goalscoring charts alongside Jermain Defoe.

His form has not gone unnoticed south of the border, with reports from England that Premier League sides such as Aston Villa and Crystal Palace were both keen on making a move for the Colombian.

They are not the only team watching him either, with Saint-Etienne another team said to be keen on his services.

If that is the case, they will be boosted by his latest comments, in which he makes it clear that he wants to move on from Rangers sooner rather than later.

“So far there is nothing official,” he told Blue Radio SportsBlog.

“There is a lot of speculation about teams sending messages, but there is nothing, but if there is something concrete, then I will let you know officially.

“Hopefully in the January window, the biggest step to a more competitive league will be made.

“The Premier League is very strong and similar to Scotland; it suits how I play, and I like it a lot.”
