Brendan Rodgers could be coming for Rangers' best player

Brendan Rodgers' first Leicester signing could well come from Glasgow. But not the side you might expect.

Rodgers' decision to leave Celtic last week left a sour taste in the mouths of his now-former fans but he may do his reputation among Bhoys supporters even more harm with a rumoured move for Rangers' star striker.

When he's not getting sent off, Alfredo Morelos has been scoring goals for fun for Steven Gerrard's side and his knack for finding the net has drawn the interest from several teams around Europe.

According to Sky Sports, Leicester remain eager to add Morelos to their squad in the summer and their interest in the Colombian forward has only grown since club scouts identified him as a potential signing prior to the January transfer window.

Rodgers knows only too well what Morelos is capable of and the new Foxes boss is reportedly set to sit down with director of football John Rudkin and head of recruitment Eduardo Macia to make a final decision on whether to make an official approach.

Leicester will face stiff competition from several Bundesliga clubs if they are to sign Morelos, who admitted that he is expecting to leave Ibrox when the transfer window opens again.

"There are many teams interested in me and a lot of them have watched me play," the 22-year-old told a Colombian radio station last week.

"Most likely my transfer will be this summer."
