Report: Rangers make an offer for £5m Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas

Tomas Kalas will reportedly leave Chelsea this summer with Rangers and Championship duo Hull and Bristol City allegedly making offers.

Tomas Kalas has an offer on the table from both Rangers and Hull City as the Chelsea defender weighs up his future options, according to the Bristol Post.

After nine years, four appearances and loan spells at six different clubs, Kalas is expected to finally depart Chelsea’s loan legion this summer.

The Czech Republic international spent last season on loan at Bristol City, making 38 Championship appearances as Lee Johnson’s side finished just outside the play-off places, and the report claims that The Robins have held talks about Kalas’ return to Ashton Gate.

 

But Bristol City are not alone in targeting the 26-year-old.

The report adds that Kalas, who is aware that he has no future at Stamford Bridge, has also received offers from Rangers, Hull and a number of other clubs in England’s second tier.

Rangers have been linked with Kalas since March with the Scottish Sun pointing out that he will cost £5 million – a fee that would make him the club’s biggest signing in 14 years.

And the Bristol Post adds that the 6ft centre-back is unlikely to make a decision on his future until he returns from the ongoing international break.
