West Brom have been linked with a big move for in-demand Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos and plenty of fans would love to see the South American at The Hawthorns.

He won’t come cheap. According to Scottish outlet the Daily Record, Lille are said to be readying a £17m bid for the 24-year-old, with West Brom set to pounce with an offer of their own.

Lille have been told that £15m won’t be enough and Rangers have resisted selling their star striker in previous windows.

West Brom know that after having a £12m bid rejected for him last summer.

Morelos is untested at a higher level, although he has had Europa League experience with Rangers and he’s been prolific north of the border.

If he could even hit half of the numbers that he’s done for Rangers he’d be a huge success and plenty of Baggies fans would love to see Slaven Bilic sign him up.

Some are concerned about his disciplinary record – he’s been sent off seven times for Rangers – but maybe it’s something in the water up there. He had only picked up one yellow card in 69 games prior to that.

It’s something he would have to get out of his game but if he can do that and keep the goals – he’s scored an incredible 123 goals in 199 games for Rangers and Helsinki – he could be an amazing buy.

Here is a selection of tweets from Baggies fans…
