The Rangers XI and squad if transfer rumours are true: Arsenal + Bayern men signed and Tavernier replaced

Rangers could be set for a busy summer of transfer activity, with Arsenal and Bayern Munich youngsters linked.

Philippe Clement has already started to perform major surgery on his Rangers squad this summer with a host of incomings and outgoings at Ibrox.

A number of players have been linked with a move to the Glasgow giants following a tumultuous season last year, which saw further managerial change, League Cup silverware in December and end-of-season disappointment as rivals Celtic clinched a Premiership and Scottish Cup double.

The Light Blues recruitment was heavily criticised last summer, with Michael Beale shelling out huge sums of money on players who have simply failed to cut the mustard. It’s been left to Clement to pick up the pieces and rebuild a squad that has the foundations of a decent side but still needs bolstering in several areas.

Five first-team players have already departed at the end of the contracts and more high-profile exits are likely with the club’s ‘Player of the Year Jack Butland attracting Premier League interest, while captain James Tavernier and fellow defensive mainstay Connor Goldson have both been strongly linked with big-money moves to the Saudi Pro League.

Replacement for all three players has been mooted, with this predicted XI and subs based off recent rumours anticipating their exits. Here’s how a Rangers squad on matchday one of the Premiership term could look if rumours prove true.
