Rangers are reportedly interested in a potential swoop this summer for attacker Carlos Mendes Gomes, who plays in the fourth tier of English football with Morecambe.
According to the Scottish Sun, Gers scouts have watched the 22-year-old in action several times during this campaign.
The report states that Steven Gerrard’s Rangers have now initiated contact with Morecambe about a potential move for the forward.
With his contract expiring at the end of this season, he could soon be available to sign on a free transfer.
Mendes Gomes, who is an ex-Atletico Madrid academy player, is an attacker that usually operates in wide areas with his pace and trickery. The winger has scored 12 goals so far this season in League Two.
There are often hidden gems lower down the football ladder, and Rangers have shown in the past that they can find fantastic players on bargain deals.
If the Scottish giants have been monitoring Mendes Gomes this season, they’ll see he’s taken his game up to an entire new level.
He scored just two goals in his first two seasons at Morecambe, who are fifth in the League Two table, but it shows his game is maturing massively with his goal return this year.
Rangers stormed towards the league title this season in emphatic fashion, but Gerrard’s task now has to be to keep improving at Ibrox and try make them the dominant force again in Glasgow for a sustained period.
