If ever there was any doubt Alfredo Morelos is worth well over £10M, it has surely been dispelled after the 21-year old striker overlook Newcastle legend Faustino Asprilla’s decades’ long held 10th place in the list of all time Colombian goalscorers in Europe.
The list, including the greatest forwards and strikers Colombia have ever produced such as Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, has seen Govan’s prize asset overtake the former St James’ man who was previously on 59 goals in European competition with a total of 62, including the barrowload he nabbed in Finland.
We’re perfectly sure Scottish football will still fall all over itself to prove Scotland’s top striker is worth no more than a million, while never protesting once about the value Celtic asked for the likes of Dembele or the rejection of a £12M bid for the striker from Brighton.
Only when it’s Rangers.
Nevertheless, if Morelos keeps up his remarkable scoring rate in Scotland, we’re pretty sure he’ll find himself called up for the national team. Naturally the Colombian side is filled with incredible players, but for a 21-year old to make an all-time list in European football after not even yet managing 24 months on this continent is a pretty astonishing achievement.
But not one worth £10M+, no…
