Crystal Palace are weighing up a £20million bid for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, according to reports.

Roy Hodgson is seemingly keen on the hitman who has scored 15 goals in 20 games this season.

A Colombian international, Morelos has been in fine form this term so far and was watched by Palace Sporting Director Dougie Freedman against Hearts, say the Scottish Sun.

The Eagles have began a scouting mission with a view to a swoop.

Aston Villa are also interested in El Buffalo and could also make a move in January.

However it is unlikely Steven Gerrard would be willing to sanction a deal until at least the end of the season as he plots to wrestle the Scottish Premiership away from Celtic.
