Reports have surfaced of late that Aston Villa are closely monitoring Alfredo Morelos of Rangers as they are keen to acquire his services. Morelos has earned positive reviews owing to his stupendous performances ever since his move to the Ibrox Stadium from HJK Helsinki and scouts from a lot of English clubs have started to pencil his qualities.
Apart from the Villans, the likes of Barnsley, Derby County, Bristol City and Reading are also going to compete in order to make the youngster sign on the dotted line. The youngster has carved a flying start to the season under the tutelage of Pedro Caixinha, having smashed 6 goals in the Scottish Premiership already and has shown that he has the calibre of changing Rangers’ fortunes.
Aston Villa haven’t really upped the ante so far as the English second division club have collected merely 10 points from their first 8 outings and are placed 13th in the league table. Finding the back of the net has been one of the major headaches for the Lions for quite some time now and no wonder why they are in hot pursuit of bringing Morelos to the Villa Park.
Morelos is a striker of fine calibre, who implements his pace, power and strength meticulously up front and always looks desirous to test the goalkeeper of the opposition. His physical attributes allow him to hold the well in the final third before bringing his teammates into the equation.
He is someone who isn’t afraid of running on his own and pounces upon the opportunities which are served to him. Besides, he creates ample amount of chances for his teammates as well.
The 21-year-old, despite his young age, has shown immense composure and calmness and if his traits are channelized in the right direction, he would be able to create more impact at any club he plies his trade. The Light Blues bought him during the summer transfer window and considering the immediate and substantial impact he has made at the Glasgow based club, it goes without saying that his current employers would be in no hurry to sell him.
Although it is a little too early to decipher the Columbian starlet completely, Aston Villa are in dire need of a player like him, for he is young, full of intent and has showcased his appealing predatory skills so far in his career.
It would be hard to prise him out of the ranks of the Teddy Bears, but if Aston Villa manage to sign him in the near future, they would be laying their hands on one of the finest talents in the game at this stroke of the hour.
