Rangers launch £3m bid for powerful Championship ace

Published

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.

The Verdict

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.
