Juan Alegria breaks silence as youngster closes in on Rangers move

Colombian youngster Juan Alegria says that he is on the verge of completing a move to Rangers. The 18-year-old currently plays for FC Honka. However, Alegria could find himself sent out on loan for the remainder of the season should the deal go through in January. He told Glasgow Live: "Together with my family, we are studying and finalising details to transfer me to Rangers - a great team who are the best in Scotland and highly recognised in European football. "As a striker, I believe to match the achievements of players like Radamel Falcao and Duvan Zapata - players I admire for everything they have done in Europe - I will need to work very hard. "Someday I would like to talk to them so they can share their experiences of being great scorers both in Europe and in the Colombian national team. "Since I started playing football, I have only been able to do this with the support of my parents. They have given me a lot of love and passion. So every day I fight for them. They instilled in me the value of humility. They taught me that if you are humble in your life, you will prosper. "I got a move to Finland because I was called up for the Colombian Under-17s team for a tournament in Chile and managed to score a few goals for them. Those goals I scored helped get me a move to Europe. "When I moved to FC Honka, they gave me my debut. Thank God I managed to sign for such a club where they gave me a lot of minutes to play. "But I am well aware that I must continue working and learning because football can change on a daily basis." source - heraldscotland.com
