Report: Rangers not keen on signing Lech Poznan star Paulus Arajuuri

Scottish side Rangers are not interested in Lech Poznan centre defender Paulus Arajuuri, according to reports from The Daily Record.

Rangers have enjoyed a stunning season this term, with manager Mark Warburton comfortably leading the club to the Scottish Championship title.

In addition, Rangers will be contesting the Scottish Cup final against Hibernian later this month and the Gers are well on course to finishing the campaign with no less than three trophies to their name.

Despite the fine season though, it goes without saying that Rangers will need to strengthen their squad in order to mount a challenge for the Scottish Premiership title next year and unsurprisingly a number of players have been linked with a move to the Ibrox Stadium over the past few weeks.

Recently, Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy had claimed that Rangers were considering bolstering their backline with the signing of Lech Poznan defender Paulus Arajuuri.

Arajuuri has been a consistent performer for Poznan and the Finnish national team over the past few years and the reports had stated that Rangers, along with a host of other clubs such as Burnley, Cardiff City, Chievo, Bologna, FC Zurich, Midtjylland, Spartak Moscow and Terek Grozny were all interested in the 27-year-old.

However, the Daily Record (live transfer feed on 10/5/16, posted at 11:53 A.M) have revealed that Rangers are not interested in Arajuuri and that the club’s head of recruitment Frank McParland is currently looking at transfer targets elsewhere.
