Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos has confirmed that he has agreed terms with Rangers.
The 20-year-old goal machine has changed the bio on his personal Instagram page to say that he is a “professional player for Rangers FC” in Spanish, meaning that he has now accepted a move to Ibrox.
There has been some wait for Morelos to be officially announced by the Glasgow giants, after he was pictured in Edinburgh following the Express’ report earlier this week that said he was about to undergo a medical.
The Light Blues are still to make an kind of statement on his arrival, but it appears that Morelos has jumped the gun and already began to call himself a player for the club – therefore confirming his arrival.
The former Independiente Medellin forward has been in hot form in the currently on-going Finnish top flight.
He has scored 11 goals in 12 matches, but was left out of the squad for a match against JJK on Thursday, seemingly due to his move to Scotland.
Morelos has been on fire ever since moving to HJK two seasons ago, and scored a total of 46 goals in 62 appearances across all competitions for them.
He has six caps for the Colombia Under-20 side and scored seven goals.
Football Insider Verdict
Morelos looks as though he could be the player that can take Rangers to the next level. The Light Blues could look to make him a legend of Ibrox or seek to sell him on for a profit and drastically improve their financial situation next summer – that is if he gets at least 20 goals next season. Kenny Miller is a reliable pair of boots up front, but should definitely be axed from Pedro Caixinha’s first-team plans to make way for a striker who is one of the most in-form players in Europe at the moment. Morelos’ arrival seems like it could be one of the best signings that could be made in Scotland this summer.
In other Rangers news, Miller has issued a stern warning to Caixinha’s new recruits.
