“Rangers Eye West Ham’s Ben Johnson for Defensive Reinforcement in January Transfer Window”

Glasgow Rangers are set to resume competitive play against Dumbarton in

the Scottish Cup’s fourth round, aiming to embark on a journey to secure their 35th cup win by May.

Since his arrival in mid-October, manager Philippe Clement has already

clinched the League Cup and has his sights set on the Scottish Cup and potentially the Premiership title.

Despite the upcoming busy schedule, Clement recognizes the need for

squad depth, particularly after a significant injury crisis before Christmas.

In response, there are plans to make additional signings following

Fabio Silva’s arrival from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Reports from the Daily Mail indicate that Rangers are expressing interest in

Ben Johnson, a defender from West Ham United. The 23-year-old,

who has decided against renewing his contract with West Ham,

is also being pursued by Leeds United and Sheffield United.

With Johnson’s contract expiring in the summer, West Ham manager

David Moyes is eager to secure a transfer fee during the January window.

The extent of Clement’s budget for potential signings remains uncertain.

Acquiring Johnson on a pre-contract agreement this month could

be a strategic move, allowing the manager to bring in a dependable defender without a transfer fee.

This approach might also enable him to allocate available funds to strengthen the midfield and attack.

Rangers have a history of successful pre-contract signings from English clubs,

with Scott Arfield being a notable example, suggesting that Johnson could similarly become a valuable addition to the team.
