‘Real statement player’ – Rangers fans on Filip Helander transfer rumours

Filip Helander will cost around £4.2m.

Rangers’ quest for a new central defender looks set to come to a conclusion. According to reports in the Swedish media, Filip Helander is on his way to Ibrox.

Aftonbladet reports that Helander will move to Rangers for a fee of around £4.2m. The 26-year-old defender will complete the central defensive ranks for Steven Gerrard’s men.

Helander will compete with Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and George Edmundson for the centre-back spots. He is making the switch from the Italian top-flight to the Scottish Premiership.

After starting his career at Malmo, Helander has had spells with Hellas Verona and Bologna in Italy. But his time in Serie A looks like it is coming to an end.

Helander stands at 6ft 4in tall and is a dominant centre-back. The Sweden international is also left-footed which fits the profile of what Gerrard is looking for.

Rangers fans will hope he fares better than departing duo Gareth McAuley and Joe Worrall. McAuley has been released and Worrall has returned to Nottingham Forest after his loan.

Here are some tweets from Rangers supporters discussing the imminent arrival of Helander.
