As per Sportbladet, Leicester City are interested in signing Glasgow Rangers defender Filip Helander.
Leicester eye Helander
The Foxes are currently flying in the Premier League – they are third in the table and are in with a very good chance of making the Champions League next term.
In preparation for the next campaign, they are said to be eyeing a move for the £1.8m-valued Sweden international (Transfermarkt). Aston Villa are also believed to be in pursuit.
Must stay at Ibrox
Helander struggled with a foot injury last season that kept him out for much of the campaign (Transfermarkt) and has missed some matches this term as well, but when he has been available he has been a hugely important player for the Ibrox outfit. Incredibly, the Gers are yet to lose a league game with Helander in the side since he made the switch to Glasgow in 2019.
Will Rangers sell Helander?
Steven Gerrard’s side have lost just two games in all competitions this campaign – Helander did not play a minute in either of them. The manager is clearly delighted with the former Bologna man, calling him “outstanding” (via The Glasgow Times) earlier this term.
At 27 years of age, he is arguably at his peak and still has a good few years ahead of him. Connor Goldson has received the most praise at centre-back, even being tipped to win the club’s Player of the Year award, but perhaps Helander is the true lynchpin at the heart of the defence. Rangers must make sure he does not leave the club this summer.
