Glasgow Rangers are deciding whether to make a fourth bid for Millwall defender Jake Cooper, according to Press Association Sport via The Glasgow Evening Times.
After losing Bruno Alves to Parma, Rangers are desperately trying to sign a new centre-back and Cooper is their top target.
They have so far made three bids for the towering centre-half but Millwall have stood firm and rejected them all.
The latest bid was thought to be in the region of £3m and Rangers are now weighing up whether to improve their offer for the 23-year-old.
Cooper was a key fixture in Millwall’s line-up last season, having penned a permanent deal with the club after helping them win promotion from League One during his loan spell from Reading the year before.
Rangers are yet to decide whether to continue pursuing the former England under-20 international, who netted four goals last season, with the Lions insisting he is not for sale.
Cooper would be an excellent purchase for Rangers and he would be a handy long-term investment.
To Millwall, he is worth way more than £3m because he is young but already has lots of experience and is able to cope with the physicality of the division.
Cooper’s frame is vital to the way Millwall play and his partnership with Shaun Hutchinson is among the best in the league so there is no need for them to sell.
