West Ham United have been linked with a surprise move to sign Alfredo Morelos from Rangers this summer.
According to claims from The Daily Star, the Hammers are in the market for another striker following the club-record acquisition of Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt.
The French forward joined in a deal believed to be worth £45 million on Wednesday, and Manuel Pellegrini is believed to be eyeing another attacking reinforcement following the departures of Lucas Perez, Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic.
Morelos is named by The Daily Star as a player who has been identified as a target, with a possible £10 million transfer in the offing.
The Colombian forward took headlines for both the right and wrong reasons throughout last season. He found the back of the net 17 times for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership but was also sent off on five separate occasions.
West Ham do allegedly have concerns over the 23-year-old’s lack of discipline but have lined him up as a possible addition to their attacking options.
Other strikers who West Ham could consider signing
Borja Iglesias was excellent for Espanyol last season. The Spaniard would be a clever addition to West Ham’s attacking options.
Mariano Diaz has been deemed surplus to requirements at Real Madrid. The former Lyon forward would be a quality signing.
Welbeck is available for free following his release from Arsenal. It would not be a marquee signing by any means, but he could provide West Ham with something different.
Samatta had a good season with Genk and is believed to be in demand. The Tanzania captain would be a left-field addition.
