Don Balon make the claim, which Gers fans might see as a good thing if they want him to stay. The publication are hardly the most reputable, so Toon fans should maybe hold fire on getting shirts with Morelos printed on the back of them.
The report claims that he could cost £20million.
The Colombian striker had a wild season in Scotland, ending it with the league’s golden boot prize after scoring 18 goals. But it was also a season that saw him pick up numerous red cards, with the likes of Scott Brown targeting him and playing on his short fuse.
This is a short fuse that would make him a risk for Newcastle. We’ve already had a striker with discipline issues, and Rafa Benitez shipped him off to Fulham. So it’s clear that the manager hasn’t got time for players he can’t rely on.
But what do the Rangers fans think about Morelos possibly leaving for Newcastle?
Rangers fans seem happy to lose Morelos for £20million
If Newcastle bid £20m for Morelos, bite their hand aff immediately.

If the bid is genuine there is no way Rangers can afford to knock it back. It would be a huge loss to lose Morelos but to make 20 times his transfer fee in two years is fantastic and will allow us to strengthen with quality in a few areas of the team.

If newcastle want too sign alfredo morelos. Then they need too pay £20-£25 million. After all. A billionaire just bought newcastle

Yes if the £20 million is true then it’s a no brainer that can buy us quality elsewhere in the squad. We need it.

100% it’s a no brainer, we play better without him in our team, We can buy Kent with that money and he wants to play in the premier League 🤷♂️🤷♂️🤷♂️🤷♂️

Yes we should cash in on him he is a good player but he cost us to many games by getting sent off so many times

Would like to see Morelos go to Newcastle if he’s gonna leave. Good fee and be able to keep a close eye on how he gets on! Fans there would love him too!
