Rangers pursuit of Santiago Moreno has gone cold - report

Rangers have been linked with Colombian forward Santiago Moreno, but per The Athletic, the pursuit appears to have gone cold.

The America di Cali attacker, who has previously been likened to Sadio Mane [The Daily Telegraph], is available for less than £2million this summer due to his release clause.

However, Jordan Campbell has shared the latest update this week, claiming, “There aren’t legs in this one for now.”

The Bears interest in Moreno was understandable as has got the attributes that could cause teams in Scotland real issues.

However, Moreno isn’t one understood to be on the top of anyone’s wish list at the Ibrox outfit, and as things stand, they’re unlikely to sign him this summer.

A huge mistake

The chances of error with a player like that are minimal as he comes with a relatively low transfer fee and has age on his side – having only turned 21 in April.

He’s quick, dynamic and mobile, something which makes him fit into any one of the three attacking positions.

While he prefers playing on the right, as Mane did at Liverpool prior to Mo Salah’s arrival, he’s equally capable of wreaking havoc on the left flank and down the middle.

Gerrard is known to have a penchant for versatile attackers so we’re surprised that the club are passing the buck on a player that comes so highly recommended.

He’ll also arrive with a high resale value – making perfect financial sense to pay his release clause.

Rangers have been exploring the Colombian market for the last two years and Moreno could fit the bill perfectly.

If we were Ross Wilson, we would be all over this player and look to bring him to the club this summer.
