Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has refused to comment on speculation surrounding his side and a move for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
Morelos has been heavily linked with Villa , who are thought to be in the market for a striker once the transfer window re-opens in January.
The Colombian hot-shot netted his 21st goal of the season last night , in Rangers' 2-0 defeat of FC Porto in the Europa League.
He also assisted Steven Davis' goal for the Gers' second, with the 23-year-old showing once again why Premier League clubs have been touted as possible destinations for the former HJK Helsinki man.
Morelos has spoken of his desire to move to the top flight and Smith is an admirer, commenting on his goal.
But he refused to talk extensively about another club's player.
"I certainly saw his goal last night," Smithsaid.
"It was a very good finish.
"He's a player who is contracted to another football club and we aren't a club that talks about them."
A stepping stone? Why?Big club, great fans a strong history with a European cup. Massive financial backing behind them now and they’ll only push on. Morelos won’t get a move to a Chelsea/Man Utd/Arsenal etc yet. Needs a stepping stone and Villa would be that
Atletico would be the perfect move but I think he'd rather the prem league.I think Atletico Madrid would be the perfect move for him at this stage.
They play in a top league and they are a very big club.No idea what the hate is for villa on this forum. Massive club
Right now, I think he'd walk into the Arsenal and Spurs sides.I honestly think he would walk into any side in the EPL other than City, Liverpool,Spurs and Arsenal.
Ffs they are the biggest club from Britain's 2nd city, they have a good history, won a European cup and 7 english titles and are on the rise. I'm pretty fucking sure alfredo will help them get there if they stump up the sizable amount required.They are a middle of the road English top flight club.
Do you think that is as high as Morelos can hope you achieve?
All in your opinion of course.Ffs they are the biggest club from Britain's 2nd city, they have a good history, won a European cup and 7 english titles and are on the rise. I'm pretty fucking sure alfredo will help them get there if they stump up the sizable amount required.
There are other big clubs out there. We were in the Scottish 3rd division a few years ago ffs.
To directly answer your question i think Man utd would be fucking daft not to sign him, but they are a fucking shambles and will probably spend about 100m on another diddy who will collapse under the weight of his fee.
I'm not worked up mate, but try to think rationally... villa are a big club rebuilding. If they can afford morelos and ward off the likes of Man utd in the process then he could take them to mid table and above.All in your opinion of course.
Thats all these are mate, don’t get so worked up about things.
He won't go to liverpool imo, but when Gerrard gets that job I do think Gerrard will sign him straight away from whatever club he ends up at. With an over inflated price to do us a favour on our 20% sell on fee of course..Right now, I think he'd walk into the Arsenal and Spurs sides.
And as I posted in another thread, SG has stated that Alfie will definitely be here beyond January. How can he be so sure? Maybe I'm adding 2+2 and getting 5, but that suggests, to me, that SG knows that Alfie will leave in summer, and also knows where he'll be going. And SG is still very close to Jurgen Klopp. Would he walk into the current Liverpool side? Nope, but he'd be there or thereabouts, and he's not a young man who'll turn down a challenge.
