Ex-Juventus RB reckons Dessers is in the mould of Morelos who scored 124 goals for Rangers 

Former Juventus right-back Sergio Porrini believes that Cyriel Dessers is in the same bracket as prolific Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos. 


After six years of service to the Light Blues in which he scored 124 goals in 269 appearances, Morelos will be departing the Ibrox Stadium upon the expiry of his contract on June 30, 2023.


Rangers are working on a deal to bring in Cremonese striker Dessers to fill the void left by the Colombian, and have also been linked with a move for Atalanta-owned Dutch attacker Sam Lammers. 


Last season, Dessers netted ten goals combined for Racing Genk and Cremonese, eleven less than his haul in 2021-2022. 


A transfer fee of five million euros plus add-ons have been mooted for Dessers, and Porrini reckons that the money would be well spent if the deal goes through. 


In quotes relayed by Daily Record, Porrini remarked: "He can score more than 20 goals, I'm sure of that


"Fifteen goals would be the first target but, if he starts well, I wouldn't be surprised to see him score more than 20. He's the sort of player the fans will love.


"He's at the right age, has good experience and won't be fazed about replacing a player like Morelos. He's played in a number of good leagues and scored goals. He'll be confident in his ability."


Overall, Dessers has mustered 111 goals in 280 appearances combined for seven different clubs since turning professional ,  namely Heracles Almelo, FC Utrecht, NAC Breda, KSC Lokeren, Genk, Feyenoord Rotterdam and Cremonese.
