Report: Rangers hoping to bring Jake Cooper to Ibrox

Glasgow Rangers are reportedly looking to bring Millwall defender Jake Cooper to Ibrox in the summer transfer window.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, the Gers are eyeing up a move for Cooper as a replacement for Bruno Alves who is all set to join Serie A club Parma.

Alves, who joined Rangers last summer from Cagliari, is all set to join the newly promoted side Parma, with the Scottish giants looking to offload him.

Steven Gerrard has brought in the likes of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic to boost his central defensive options, but Alves’s departure could mean there could be room for an extra defender.

The report now claims that Gerrard has a replacement in mind, and Millwall’s Cooper is on the club’s wish list.

The 23-year-old who started his career with Reading moved to Millwall after failing to impress Jaap Stam.

The tall defender has represented England at youth level, and played 42 times for the Championship club last season, scoring four goals.

The report adds that Rangers will need to make a bid around the seven figure mark to lure him to Ibrox. It remains to be seen whether Rangers will be prepared to dish out the money, especially after signing Katic and Goldson.
