Glasgow Rangers have submitted a £3m bid for Millwall’s Jake Cooper, according to a report by Football Insider.
Steven Gerrard is hoping to bolster his defence after losing Portugal international Bruno Alves to Parma and Cooper has been identified as a top target.
The 23-year-old starred at the heart of defence for Millwall last season, forming a solid centre-back partnership with Shaun Hutchinson and helping his side to a 7th place finish.
Cooper only joined Millwall from Reading on a permanent basis last summer after impressing on loan as they won promotion from League One in the 2016/17 season.
The former England under-20 international is now wanted by Rangers, who have firmed up their interest with a £3m bid for the towering centre-half.
Millwall are desperate to keep Cooper, who netted four goals in 42 appearances for the Lions last season, but are yet to respond to this latest offer.
Cooper is worth a lot of money to Millwall because he has established himself as one of the most powerful, dominant and solid centre-backs in the league despite his young age.
The South London side have a top talent on their hands and should hold out for more than £3m.
But if they do choose to accept it, new signing Murray Wallace is a more than capable deputy for Cooper.
