Rangers look to offload 29-year-old summer signing in seven-figure deal – report
Rangers boss Graeme Murty has decided to cut his losses with Mexican striker Eduardo Herrera, and is trying to offload him to Mexican side Santos Laguna, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun report that Gers are happy to lose money on the 29-year-old, who moved to Ibrox in the Summer of 2017 for a fee of £1.5million.
The Mexican international has not lived up to expectations since his switch from UNAM Pumas, and has only scored two goals in his 22 appearances.
The reports claims that any deal between Rangers and Santos Laguna could be worth £1million, however, Rangers would also consider a loan deal for Herrera.
The 29-year-old is not quite ready to quit just yet, and would prefer to stay and fight for his place.
“Any player is excited to be called to the national team, but first I have to earn a place at Rangers,” Herrera told the Scottish Sun.
This news follows his compatriot Carlos Pena, who has also left the Ibrox for his homeland Mexico.
Football Insider verdict:
Eduardo Herrera has not impressed. Two goals from 22 appearnces is not good enough if your ambitions lie with chasing down Celtic. It seems Ranger’s Mexican experiment has failed – although it is likely that the club will recoup most of the money they shelled out for Herrera. It has been reported that Murty is looking to finalise this deal to facilitate a signing, so it is safe to assume that the Rangers boss has had enough. With the World Cup fast approaching, the 29-year-old will want to be playing regular football as his chances of playing are only diminishing at the Ibrox.
In other Rangers transfer news, it has been reported that Gers are homing in on a top flight player who wants to move to the Ibrox.
