Glasgow Rangers’ hopes of signing Niklas Dorsch may have received a huge boost on Monday night.
Dorsch’s side Heidenheim were playing in the relegation play-off against Werder Bremen after having finishing third in the 2. Bundesliga – that saw them play the top tier’s 16th-placed side in a two-legged tie. The first leg ended 0-0 in Bremen and, after a 2-2 draw in the second clash, Werder secured their status in the top flight on away goals.
That, of course, will be a crushing blow to the Heidenheim players and all those associated with the club, but it could be a big boost for the Gers. The Ibrox outfit have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, and now he has not been promoted to the Bundesliga, he could well be more open to the idea of moving to the top flight of Scottish football – irregardless of the overall competitiveness, the Gers are still a club with worldwide prestige and they also compete in European competition.
Would you have liked to sign Niklas Dorsch?
Currently valued at £4.05m by Transfermarkt, Dorsch is a former Bayern Munich starlet who has played an important part in Heidenheim’s run this term – he registered five assists in 32 matches from the middle of the park. Should the Gers be able to sign him, he would be an impressive addition to their side – now, their chances of completing a deal may have been given a boost.
