Carlos Pena has arrived in Glasgow as he aims to become Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha's third summer signing.
The Mexican midfielder landed in Scotland on Friday ahead of his proposed move to Ibrox, with the 27-year-old expected to follow Ryan Jack and Bruno Alves in joining Caixinha's team.
Reports in Mexico claim Pena has agreed a three-year deal although the Gers must secure a work permit for the Chivas player.
Pena has won 19 caps for his country and played in the 2014 World Cup but he has not played international football for almost two years, meaning he must get the backing of a panel convened by the Scottish Football Association.
Pena joined Chivas from Leon in December 2015, but he was loaned back to his former club a year later.
Reports in Mexico also claim that Rangers are still negotiating over a deal for Veracruz forward Eduardo Herrera, who played under Caixinha at Santos Laguna.
The 28-year-old has nine caps but all but one were won in 2015, which would also mean Rangers would need to win a work permit appeal to complete his signing.
