Rangers could be set to bolster their squad at both ends of the pitch, according to today's transfer rumours.

The Light Blues have emerged as favourites to land the signature of Tottenham legend Jermain Defoe, who is back in pre-season training with current club Bournemouth. The 35-year-old started only 11 Premier League games for the Cherries last season and BetVictor reckon he's most likely to end up north of the border this summer. They've installed Rangers as 3/1 favourites to be utilising the ex England striker's services come the close of the window, with Leeds and Nottingham Forest rated at 10/1.

Meanwhile, with Bruno Alves expected to finalise a move to Parma, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is keen on landing Milwall defender Jake Cooper as a replacement, according to the Daily Mail. The report says the 23-year-old centre-half would cost a seven-figure sum.
