By Derek Smithson

Rangers are keeping tabs on defender Pedro Rebocho from Portuguese top-flight club Moreirense, according to a report.

Portuguese outlet A Bola claim that the Gers are eyeing the 22-year-old after, who has enjoyed a breakout season.

The left-back only made his first senior appearance this season and has now played 34 times for Moreirense.

He completed the move last summer after graduating from Benfica’s academy set-up as a youngster and has thrived since his transfer.

Rebocho made 34 appearances this campaign for Moreirense and managed to supply six assists in return, highlighting his qualities going forward.

The full-back has represented Portugal’s various age levels all the way up to the Under-21s

Pedro Caixinha is set to undergo a busy transfer window as he looks to rebuild his squad and does already have two Lee Wallace and Myles Beerman as options.

Football Insider verdict:

Rangers don’t need a new left-back in the window and there are certainly other areas of the pitch that needs strengthening. They need to be adding real quality to their squad if they to close the gap to Scottish champions Celtic. However, left-back Rebocho is an exciting upcoming talent and has proven himself in the Portuguese top flight this season.The 22-year-old is an attack minded full-back and would fit in with the Gers style of play. Caixinha may be aware of the defender from his homeland and it’s no surprise to see another player linked with an Ibrox move from Portugal.
