The Colombian hitman is the Premiership’s top scorer and netted his 20th goal of the season in all competitions in the disappointing 1-1 draw with Hibs on Boxing Day.

Rangers have made clear they have no intention of selling the 22-year-old in the January transfer window, a year on from Morelos becoming unsettled when the Ibrox side rejected big money offers from China.

However, Morelos admits he is expecting further interest when the window reopens next week.

He said: “It’s very likely there are several teams looking at me and that there will be offers, but there is nothing concrete yet.

“I have to wait until the last game of the year is played and will try to end 2018 in a positive way.

“My dream is to play in the English Premier League. It’s very similar to the football in Scotland.”

And Morelos, in an interview in his homeland Blu Radio’s Blog Deportivo programme has stressed he’s determined to add to his solitary cap he earned for Colombia earlier this year.

He said: “The national team is very important to me. It’s in my mind all the time.

“I know that if I continue like this by scoring goals with Rangers, a new opportunity will come. I am aware that if I do things right, the call will come.”
