Okumu linked with move to Scottish champs Rangers
Scottish champions Glasgow Rangers are eyeing up Elfsborg and Kenya defender Joseph Okumu, plotting to lure him over to Scotland for close to Ksh 300m in case Filip Helander leaves.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are thought to be keen on signing Helander, and Rangers are looking to the Allsvenskan if they need to replace the Swedish ace.
Okumu isn’t a household name; the 23-year-old had spells in his native Kenya before heading to the United States with Real Monarchs, then Elfsborg in 2019.
The Kenyan international is a huge presence at 6ft 4in, and could be a rough diamond for Rangers to polish up – just as Celtic did with Okumu’s compatriot Victor Wanyama.
