Rangers Turn Attention to Thomas Galdames After Jose Cordoba Transfer Falls Through

Rangers have shifted their focus in the transfer window after their pursuit of Jose Cordoba fell apart, according to MDZ Online journalist Gonzalo Conti. The Ibrox club are now targeting Godoy Cruz left-back Thomas Galdames to bolster their defensive options.

Galdames, 25, offers versatility as he can play both left-back and center-back. This flexibility makes him a valuable alternative to Cordoba, whose transfer to Rangers seemed imminent but ultimately collapsed.

Rangers are determined to be proactive in the transfer market despite their recent season coming to an end on May 25th. Securing Galdames’ signature ahead of reported interest from Belgian clubs would be a positive move for the Scottish Premiership side.

Rangers had heavily courted Cordoba, even inviting him to a match earlier this month. However, Norwich City swooped in and appear to have won the race for the defender. Galdames’ physical presence, thanks to his height, is seen as an upgrade for Rangers’ defense, which has struggled at times this season. Additionally, his experience, despite being limited to South America, along with his inclusion in the Chilean national squad, suggests he has the potential to succeed at Ibrox.
