Improving this Liverpool team would be a tough task. The Reds are flying at the moment with a 22 point lead at the top of the table and nearly every first teamer is nailed on for a PFA Team of the Year place. They may well add to the squad in the summer – Liverpool are watching Alfredo Morelos according to the striker himself.

Morelos joined Rangers from Helsinki in 2017.

The 23-year-old forward has been at the centre of everything good about Steven Gerrard’s side, he has netted 12 goals in 12 starts this campaign, with eight appearances from the bench.

Despite his prolific goalscoring, Morelos has cut a divisive figure due to his disciplinary issues.

The Colombian forward has been sent off seven times in his two and a half years at Ibrox.

The striker recently told AS Colombia that he’s open to a move away in the summer and he believes Liverpool are monitoring his progress.

He told the outlet:

“I think [Liverpool] are aware, (it’s easy to) imagine with the coach we have, who played all that time in Liverpool.

“I imagine he must have friends, managers who come to watch the games and are on the lookout. Other teams are watching as well.

 

“There are many clubs interested, let’s wait until the end of the season to see what leagues are asking for me and make a decision.”

What RTK has to say

No thanks.

The last thing that this Liverpool squad needs is Alfredo Morelos coming in and picking up red cards for fun.

The man obviously has discipline issues and that is one thing that Jürgen Klopp has managed to stamp out of this side.

Whilst he is evidently a talented striker, he certainly strikes the viewer as a player similar to Luis Suarez.

There is no point splashing out on a player that could miss a few games at a time, or even more depending on the issue.
