Rangers Set to Welcome First Summer Arrival After Agreeing Personal Terms with Jose Cordoba

Rangers are set to welcome their first summer arrival after agreeing personal terms with Panamanian center-back Jose Cordoba, according to the Daily Record. The 22-year-old is expected to be officially announced after the Gers finalize a transfer fee with his current club, Levski Sofia.

Initial reports suggested a £3 million transfer fee, but sources now suggest the final figure will be lower. Cordoba’s arrival could have a domino effect on the Rangers backline. With Ben Davies already a fringe player, the addition of a highly-rated young defender could push him further down the pecking order.

While both Davies and Leon Balogun face uncertain futures, the situations differ. Balogun’s contract expires this summer, and manager Philippe Clement has expressed his desire to retain the experienced defender. Davies, on the other hand, might be shown the door with a potential transfer fee involved.

This move signals a potential shift in Rangers’ defensive strategy, with Clement favoring Balogun’s experience over Davies’ limited role. The coming weeks will determine the final fate of both defenders.
