A Football Insider report, claims that Rangers have opened talks with Eduardo Herrera about terminating his current contract.

We recently suggested that if he were to remain at the club, his reported wages of over £20,000-a-week [Daily Record] could hamper the club’s ambitions in the transfer market.

If the report is true, it seems the Gers are looking to avoid such a situation.

It’s suggested that the club are prepared to pay the 30-year-old striker a portion of his remaining deal up front in order to reach a swift resolution.

If an agreement isn’t reached, he would be on the wage bill for another full season.

Verdict

If Rangers can realistically buy out Herrera now, it’s something they have to go for.

His signing for approximately £1.35 million [Transfermarkt] during the tenure of Pedro Caixinha, was undoubtedly a mistake and he has no genuine prospects of featuring for the club again.

The Mexican international showed glimpses of promise during the early stages of his current loan stint at Necaxa. However, his form subsequently dropped off. Now, he’s goalless since January.

In his only full season as a Ger, he also failed to score at Ibrox.

Herrera turned out 24 times (only two starts) in the famous shirt, scoring just twice.
