Rangers are on the verge of securing their third signing of the January transfer window with Lens winger Oscar Cortes reportedly set to join the Scottish club. The 20-year-old Colombian, who made a name for himself at youth international level, is believed to be finalizing his move to Glasgow.
Cortes, who joined French Ligue 1 side Lens last summer from Millonarios in Colombia, has been primarily utilized as a right winger but also possesses the versatility to play on the left or as an attacking midfielder. His potential arrival follows that of Fabio Silva and Mohamed Diomande earlier this month.
Reports suggest that Rangers have negotiated an option to buy, indicating a long-term interest in Cortes’ development. This deal would mark another Colombian talent joining Rangers after Alfredo Morelos’ successful stint at the club.
The young winger’s ability to adapt across the front line could prove invaluable for Philippe Clement’s squad. With his imminent arrival, Cortes will look to make an immediate impact and contribute to Rangers’ ambitions both domestically and in European competitions.
Oscar Cortes is expected to soon arrive in Glasgow to complete formalities and officially become part of Rangers’ roster. Fans eagerly anticipate how he might replicate or even surpass the success of compatriot Morelos during his time with the team.
