Rangers close to signing Jose Cordoba as offer submitted - sources

Rangers are close to signing Levski Sofia defender Jose Cordoba after further talks in recent days, sources have told Football Insider

The Gers are leading the race to secure a deal for the Panama international despite rival interest from Turkish side Besiktas and clubs in France.

Ibrox chiefs have offered the 22-year-old a contract and he is weighing up whether to accept it. 

There is no agreement in place yet for Cordoba, but the deal is edging closer as Rangers look to strengthen their defensive options.

The centre-back’s current deal with the Bulgarian side is set to run until June 2025.

Rangers could secure deal to sign Jose Cordoba

Cordoba has been a regular fixture in the Levski Sofia starting lineup since making the switch from fellow Bulgarian club Etar in 2021.

The defender featured in all six of his side’s Europa Conference League qualifiers earlier this season before they were eventually knocked out by German outfit Frankfurt.

He’s so far made 87 appearances in the Bulgarian capital to go alongside his 10 outings for Panama.

Rangers are now leading a host of clubs in their bid to prize Cordoba away from Levski this summer.

Philippe Clement has revealed he is planning a “big” rebuild at Ibrox ahead of the transfer window reopening in a matter of weeks.

The Gers fell six points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race following their 2-1 defeat in the Old Firm on 11 May.

John Lundstram, Borna Barisic, Kemar Roofe, Ryan Jack, Leon Balogun and John McLaughlin are all out of contract this summer as Clement looks to revamp his squad.

Cordoba could be one of the first new signings through the door as a deal to take him to Glasgow is now edging closer.

In other news, John Lundstram now expected to leave Rangers after “whispers”.
