Are the LA Galaxy interested in Alfredo Morelos from Rangers F.C.?

That’s the word from The Scotsman, who report Jovan Kirovski was in the city to take in Rangers’ 5-0 rout over Aberdeen and spoke with ambassador Richard Gough about the young Colombian striker with 13 goals in 17 appearances.

“Jovan is a friend of mine and I sat next to him at the game on Saturday,” said Gough. “He is in Europe to see a number of things at the moment. He was asking me about Alfredo and I told him he’s just a pure goalscorer.

“Jovan said, ‘Yeah, but he looks a touch heavy’, but I told him just to keep watching and he would definitely score. True enough, he scored with a great finish just a few minutes later.

However any such interest is preliminary at best. Eintract Frankfurt failed to recruit Morelos despite sporting director Fredi Bobic traveling to observe the player, with the Colombian expressing a desire to move to the Premier League.

So don’t get your hopes up too much.
