It was detailed in the Express report that only a medical and a work permit were in the way of Morelos being announced a Rangers player.
The striker has lit up the Finnish top-flight in it’s current season, which runs until October, scoring 12 times in 12 league games for HJK Helsinki as they sit at the top of the league.

It is believed that former Finland international and current assistant Jonatan Johansson recommended Morelos to Rangers and the club have now moved swiftly in a reported £1million deal.
The club’s supporters will be hoping the striker can find a similar strike rate in Scotland as they look to close the gap with Celtic in the next campaign alongside competing in the Europa League.
