The talented striker has been touted as on the cusp of a £20 million move south of Hadrian’s Wall with a number of Premier League clubs said to be interested.

The American news outlet claim that Morelos is an “urgent” target for Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United as he looks to deal with injuries to Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin.

Everton and Leicester City, meanwhile, will provide competition with the Premier League rivals also said to be monitoring the situation.
