Rangers face unexpected attention for defender Filip Helander, with Leicester and Villa among those vying for his signature, said to be worth at least £10M.
The Swedish star, who has had an excellent season despite some injury issues, has just properly broken into his national team as a first pick, and is enjoying a career maturation at the age of 27.
His performances this season, especially in Europe, have impressed scouts in England, and the table-topping Foxes as well as the Birmingham giants are looking at trying to bring him south, but they won’t find him coming on the cheap.
The former Bologna man, whose CV is of the highest grade in the game, cost Rangers £3M in the summer in 2019, and his stock and reputation have risen, particularly this season, to a point where Rangers are seeking around £15M for him.
He is not considered completely indispensable in the way a Tavernier or Goldson is, but he’s a deeply valued member of the squad and it will take significant funds to persuade Rangers’ board to part ways with him.
We can firmly expect further interest in the Swede to ramp up, especially with this summer’s Euros upon us and good performances for his nation this summer could see his value transcend further.
We shall watch, and wait.
