Rangers need to replace Joe Worrall if he’s not returning from Nottingham Forest next season. With that in mind, they should forget Martin Skrtel and take a chance on Chelsea castaway Tomas Kalas instead.
Steven Gerrard is obviously under huge pressure to deliver success next season so he needs to bring in confident youngsters with a thing or two to prove. This is Rangers we’re talking about, after all. This club needs to win.
Indeed, Kalas has been out on loan at five clubs as a Chelsea academy player, and Football London have reported he wants a permanent move now.
The Scottish Sun have already said some time ago that Rangers are keen on signing him, and that’d be a massive positive compared to signing 34-year-old Martin Skrtel as Fotospor have suggested they could do. Former Liverpool ace Skrtel would be a poor-quality, short-term fix at best.
Those days have to be gone at Ibrox now. We don’t want another Bruno Alves now, do we?
Kalas has played 37 times in the Championship this season and it’s been his best season out on loan by far. He’s clearly not going to get a chance at Chelsea but he’s shown he’s certainly good enough to play for Rangers under Gerrard.
The Czech Republic international is capable of becoming a regular Premier League defender, but he has to prove his consistency first. By going to Rangers he can show he can deal with the pressure of playing for such a big club.
He’s 25-years-old now and has the experience of playing in various countries. Overall, he’d be ideal as a replacement for Joe Worrall and would be a huge step up from the links to Martin Skrtel.
