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.
