Pedro Caixinha is getting his summer transfer business done early
Eduardo Herrera – the 28-year-old Mexico striker – arrived in Glasgow last night and will go through a medical today before signing to join up again with boss Pedro Caixinha, who was his gaffer at previous club Santos Laguna.
UNAM striker Herrera – just like fellow Mexican recruit Carlos Pena – will need to apply for a work permit before his Rangers deal can be rubber-stamped.
Vitoria Setubal stopper Fabio Cardoso and Benfica B hitman Dalcio will also look to thrash out terms with the Ibrox outfit today.
Cardoso will cost around £1.5million, while Dalcio is due to pen a one-year loan deal.
The trio are expected to quickly put pen to paper and join Pena, Bruno Alves and Ryan Jack as Rangers summer recruits.

Rangers are still hopeful of landing Graham Dorrans from Norwich City, but the sticking point is a fee, with the Canaries looking for over £1m.
A bid for Fulham’s Kevin McDonald is also a costly one – the Londoners valuing the Scot at £2m with Brighton also on his trail. Meanwhile, ex-Ger Stevie Naismith insists his mind is not on a summer move back to Ibrox under boss Pedro Caixinha.
The striker caused unrest among the Light Blues’ support when he quit his boyhood heroes for Everton in 2011 without a fee after the club entered administration.
After a successful stint at Goodison, he joined Norwich City in an £5.8million move 18 months ago.
However, chances have been limited at Carrow Road and Rangers have been alerted to the fact their former star could be available in a cut-price deal.

Naismith, though, is not getting tied down with transfer talk ahead of the Auld Enemy clash and said: “I’ll think about Rangers if it was ever an option or it ever came up, but I’m not thinking about that at the moment.
“I’ll come back to Scotland one day. Whether it’s just to play golf, play for the local amateur team, I’ll come back.
“For Rangers and Scottish football, it’s a big summer in terms of challenging more as Celtic ran away with it last season.
“I have two years left at Norwich. They have said that if there are circumstances where I can move on and it’s right for everybody, it could happen.
“At this stage I’ve not even thought of Rangers.”
