The guards are now looking at the 6 foot 6 “price” who has been given the green light to go

With Jon McLaughlin leaving at the end of his contract, Rangers are reportedly eyeing a move to sign Jack Butland at Ibrox ahead of next season.

Rangers transfer news

The Gers are certainly wasting no time this summer, having already signed Jefte to replace Borna Barisic on the left. Commenting on the Brazilian's arrival, Philippe Clement told the club's website: “Jefté is an exciting young defender, and I am delighted that he joined our team at the start of the summer.

“He has already shown that he is a very good and talented player and I am confident that he can play a big role in our team going forward – I look forward to working with him in the coming months.”

Furthermore, after signing one player, the Gers turned their attention to another incoming player. According to Fussball Europa, Rangers are looking to sign Stojan Lekovic for an undisclosed fee. The Radnicki 1923 goalkeeper is suspected to have a gentleman's agreement with his current club that will give him the green light to leave if he is given the right opportunity this summer.

The Gers are gone…

The Scottish giants are not the only ones interested in the 6ft 6in shot-stopper though, with Aberdeen looking to make a move to create a race for his signature.


At just 22 years of age, Lekovic will be hoping to become No.1 wherever he ends up, which could mean stepping into Butland's role eventually at Ibrox. As the summer progresses, the race for his signature could be one to watch in Scotland.

“Negotiation” Lekovic could be the heir to Butland

With plenty of time to reach his peak and make further improvements, Lekovic is in good shape to eventually replace Butland if he completes a move to Rangers this summer. His 6ft 6in frame alone could train a tall goalkeeper, the likes of Thibaut Courtois who has a similar qualification. Now appears to be the best time for Rangers to strike too after Fussball Europa editor Andre Oechsner described the goalkeeper as a “bargain”.

Looking to end Celtic's recent dominance of the Scottish Premiership next season, the deal is yet to become the name of the game for those at Ibrox, while giving Clement plenty to work with in his first full season in charge. And that could see Lekovic arrive in the coming months of the summer transfer window.
