According to Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra, Glasgow Rangers are preparing a bid of €3m (£2.6m) for Santiago Moreno.
The Lowdown: Gers eye new arrivals
The previous campaign was a marvelous one for the Gers, as they won the Premiership for the first time in 10 years without losing a single game in the competition (thefishy.co.uk).
A place in the Champions League third qualifying round and a title defence to boot mean the Ibrox outfit will need to make new signings as they aim to progress further, with squad depth crucial ahead of a potentially gruelling campaign in Europe’s elite competition.
The Latest: Gers prepare Moreno bid
Now, it is being reported that the 55-time Scottish champions are preparing a bid for Moreno, who plays in Colombia for America de Cali.
Norwich City, as well as a number of MLS sides, are also interested in his services.
The Verdict: Making their move
21-year-old Moreno may not be a household name, but he certainly appears to have plenty of talent. He has managed 10 goals and seven assists for Cali so far in his career, including two strikes in this year’s Copa Libertadores (Transfermarkt), and he has even been labelled as the “new Sadio Mane” (TEAMtalk).
Would you like to sign Santiago Moreno?
£2.6m is far from a huge sum, and if the Gers do stump up the cash they could he signing a young talent who could be an exciting player given his tender age and exciting comparisons.
If he turned out to be anything like the last Colombian the Gers signed – Alfredo Morelos – he would certainly be an inspired signing.
