Rangers: Mendes Gomes linked with an Ibrox switch

Rangers have been linked with Morecambe winger Carlos Mendes Gomes recently and the youngster could prove to be a superb addition to Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox next season.

According to the Scottish Sun, Rangers could look to sign the 22-year-old after his impressive season with Morecambe in League Two and he would be available on a free transfer, due to his contract with The Shrimps set to expire at the end of the season.

Gomes is a product of Atletico Madrid’s academy but would move to West Didsbury in 2016 after failing to make the grade with the Spanish giants, before joining Morecambe in the summer of 2018.

Would Mendes Gomes be a good signing?

Since then, he has made 83 appearances for the Sky Bet League Two side, in which he has contributed 14 goals and three assists, averaging a solid 6.88 rating for his performances in England’s fourth tier.

However, he has burst into life under Derek Adams this season, with 12 goals and one assist in 38 league appearances, which has helped the Lancashire side establish themselves in the playoff positions as we approach the final few games of the season.

In a recent interview with freelance journalist Adam Goodwin, Mendes Gomes discussed his time at Atletico Madrid and claimed that during his time in Spain, he had former Real Madrid right-back Achraf Hakimi ‘on toast’ in the Madrid derby.

Considering Hakimi’s superb performances on loan at Borussia Dortmund last season earned him a £36m move to Inter during the summer, it is impressive that Mendes Gomes was able to outperform him when they were younger, and emphasises the potential that he possesses.

Therefore, considering he will be available on a free transfer this summer, Ross Wilson should definitely try and bring him to Ibrox, as he could prove to be an excellent addition to Gerrard’s side next season.

And, in other news… Wilson should hand new deal to “immense” £25k-p/w “warrior” amid pundit claim
