The Colombian is well-known for his poor disciplinary record but he has made improvements this season with only two red cards after picking up five last season.
And he is thought to be on the radar of Leicester and West Ham who are both in the market for a new striker, according to The Sun.
The Foxes are looking for a long-term replacement for Jamie Vardy while West Ham also want a new forward to partner Sebastien Haller.

But the Nigerian striker would likely cost around £60million making Morelos a more affordable option.
The Hammers have also been linked with ex-Sunderland forward Josh Maja who is currently plying his trade at Bordeaux.
