Rangers Told They Must Pay “Well Over” 2.6M To Seal Deal For Colombian “Jewel”

America de Cali president Tulio Gomez has confirmed that the Colombian club have already received offers for winger Santiago Moreno.

Reports in the English press linked Rangers with the 21-year-old last week, but Gomez has said that a number of bids from different clubs have been lodged for the player:

“They (offers) have arrived for Santiago Moreno but he is a jewel. He is 21-years-old and he is growing much more. In two or three years it will be a regular in the Colombian national team.”


Gomez is clearly reluctant to offload a promising young player and when he was asked how much it would cost to tempt him into selling up, he claimed it would take “well over €3m (£2.6m).”

That is not a surprising statement considering it is believed that America de Cali may hold out for a figure closer to £5m for Moreno.

The winger is likely to be eligible for a work permit due to rules changes that were brought in following the UK’s departure from the EU. Although the player hasn’t received a senior cap for Colombia, his appearances in the Copa Libertadores mean he would gain the points necessary for a visa.
