According to Alan Nixon, Glasgow Rangers will have to pay £500,000 if they want to sign Carlos Mendes Gomes from Morecambe.
The Lowdown: Gers target Mendes Gomes
The Gers have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, who earned promotion from League Two with the Shrimps last month.
They are not the only club to be linked with his services, with Sunderland amongst the others in pursuit (via Chronicle Live).
The Latest: Price tag revealed
Nixon has now revealed the sum that Morecambe are seeking to part ways with one of their prize assets.
The journalist claimed that the fee is set at £500,000, which would be a club-record sale for his current club (Transfermarkt).
The Verdict: Worth a punt
Mendes Gomes has really burst into life over the 2020/21 season. He made 54 appearances in all competitions for Morecambe and he proved to be a huge attacking threat, scoring 16 goals and providing five assists. His contributions helped them earn promotion to League One via the play-offs.
Should Rangers sign Carlos Mendes Gomes?
For Morecambe, £500,000 would represent a significant fee, but from Rangers’ point of view, he could end up being a huge bargain for them. They have been accustomed to paying millions in transfer fees down the years – their own record purchase stands at £12m (via Daily Record). As such, Ross Wilson and co will not bat an eyelid by paying £500,000 for a player as talented as Mendes Gomes.
