RANGERS were delighted to announce the signing of Alfredo Morelos from HJK Helsinki on a three year contract in the summer of 2017.
The 20-year old striker is a Colombian international at under-20 level, and with Finland playing a summer season, in his 19 games so far, he has hit a total of 17 goals.
He began his career at Independiente Medellin in his homeland before moving to HJK, initially on loan for last season, before his move was made permanent at the start of this year.
His season on loan in the Finnish capital was equally impressive as he netted 30 goals in 43 games, with four of them coming in the Europa League qualifying round.
He becomes the first Colombian to sign for the Light Blues, and is Pedro Caixinha’s sixth signing of a busy summer as he revamps his squad ahead of the new season.
