Rangers attacker Eduardo Herrera is determined to stay at Rangers during the January transfer window and fight for his place in the second half of the season, according to the Scottish Sun.

The newspaper claims that the 29-year-old wants to remain at Ibrox despite scoring just twice since his £1.5million switch in the Sumer.

It is understood that the Gers are trying to sell on the centre-forward and are prepared to cut their loses by allowing a £1million exit, while they would even consider sending him out on loan.

The report details that Mexican club Santos Laguna have run the role over Herrera during Rangers’ winter break in Florida.

Herrera previously spent a loan spell with Santos in the 2013-14 season, but won’t be tempted by a return as he wants to prove himself in Scotland.

Good move for Rangers?

Rangers would certainly not miss Herrera during the rest of the season if he is to continue in the same poor vein of form, but at the same time allowing him to leave could be a foolish mistake if a replacement is not signed.

Alfredo Morelos is first-choice striker for the Gers and there is not much support behind him for the position.

Herrera is yet to show any consistency to his game since his move, but he may have needed slightly longer to adjust and is player that has nine international caps for Mexico.

Likely to happen?

Rangers are seemingly trying to force Herrera through the exit doors in January, but the players’ wishes will surely have to come into it.

The striker only moved to Ibrox six months ago and has struggled during his 22 appearances for the club.
There is interest in Herrera from his homeland, but no official contact as of yet and for now it seems he may remain with the Light Blues for the second half of the campaign.
