Rangers star Alfredo Morelos admits he’s got one eye on a move to a ‘bigger club’ in the future and the striker is confident Liverpool will be ‘aware’ of his talents.
Morelos, 23, has netted 76 times in 128 appearances for Rangers since arriving from HJK back in 2017 and his goalscoring exploits have quickly made him a fan favourite among the Ibrox faithful.
However, Morelos has developed a reputation for hotheadedness after receiving seven red cards and 34 bookings in all competitions for the Scottish giants.
While Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been vocal with his disapproval of Morelos’ disciplinary record, he has repeatedly underlined the forward’s value to the side.
And Morelos believes that – despite his fiery temperament – clubs will be queueing up to sign him this summer, with Gerrard bringing plenty of interested spectators with him to Rangers matches.
Asked about a move to Liverpool, Morelos told Radio Caracol: ‘I think they are aware [of me].
‘I imagine that is the case with the coach we have, who played for Liverpool for so long.
‘I imagine he has friends and directors who come to the games, as well as scouts from other teams. It’s a motivation to keep doing well.
‘There are many interested clubs, let’s wait until the end of the season to see which leagues are asking for me and then I can make a decision.
‘If God grants me the opportunity to go to a good club, it will happen.’
Morelos added: ‘My dream is to be a champion, to be a champion with Rangers is the only thing I am lacking to continue making a mark with this club,
‘Then if there’s an opportunity with a bigger team it’ll happen.’
Earlier this week, Gerrard threw his support behind Morelos after the Colombia international alleged that he had been the victim of racist abuse in Scottish stadiums.
‘I hope [Alfredo will not be driven out] because we love working with Alfredo. He’s a fantastic player,’ the former Liverpool captain told Sky Sports.
‘I know I’m always going to be biased towards him but I think he brings something to this league.
‘He makes the league a lot more exciting, so I hope not. I know he feels strongly about these issues.
‘My advice to Alfredo is to continue to be strong – we’re here for him if he needs that support – and to continue to do what he does best, which is scoring goals and making our supporters happy.’
