According to The Daily Telegraph (via The Scotsman), Glasgow Rangers are interested in signing Santiago Moreno from Colombia outfit America de Cali.
The Lowdown: Rangers planning for the new season
With the 2020/21 season now over, Rangers can fully concentrate on next season and beyond as they look to defend their Premiership title and build a squad capable of competing with the best of the best in the Champions League.
They have already brought in Fashion Sakala from Oostende (rangers.co.uk), while Nnamdi Ofoborh will also join up with the Gers after signing for the club in January.
The Latest: Gers want Moreno
Now, it has been reported the Gers are interested in signing winger Moreno.
Leeds United and Southampton are two other sides mentioned as potential suitors for the Colombian, following previous links suggesting the Whites and Gers would battle it out this summer.
The Verdict: Up-and-coming talent
Moreno has broken into the America de Cali side this year, scoring six goals and providing four assists in 22 matches in all competitions (Transfermarkt) – he has 10 strikes throughout his career. He has even been likened to Sadio Mane (Glasgow Live), displaying the ability he has and what he could bring to the 55-time Scottish champions.
Would you like to sign Santiago Moreno?
Of course, given he has played his football in South America, he is somewhat of an unknown quantity, and he would need time to adapt to European football. However, with him valued at just £585,000 (Transfermarkt), he could be available for a bargain price for the Gers, and at the age of just 21, he has plenty of years ahead of him to improve.
The youngster could be an inspired signing for Ross Wilson and co. It would be sweet for them to capture his services ahead of Leeds, who have been a thorn in Rangers’ side in recent transfer windows as they have targetted the likes of Ryan Kent (RTE), Glen Kamara and Borna Barisic (Sportske Novosti).
