Peru technical director Juan Carlos Oblitas has confirmed that Feyenoord midfielder Renato Tapia has all but settled on who he will be playing for next season.
The 24-year-old’s father revealed last week that Rangers, Celtic and Ligue One side Angers were all competing for the Peruvian international’s signature, and Oblitas suggests a decision on his future club has now been made:
“Tapia is going to get a team and what’s more, I think he already has. I don’t want to say who it is though because he still has a contract until the end of the month. I feel calm when it comes to him.”
Tapia is a holding midfielder by trade, and he has featured pretty prominently for Feyenoord this season, having played 26 times in all competitions for the Eredivisie side.
The Peruvian actually played against Rangers in the group stages of the Europa League back in September last year, playing the full 90 minutes as the Dutch club lost 1-0 to the Light Blues.
Where Tapia would fit in if he does move to Ibrox, it remains to be seen. It’s likely he’d be the main alternative to Glen Kamara, who struggled for form in the final few months of the season.
