Danilho Doekhi has hinted that he would seriously consider a move to Glasgow Rangers if the Gers were strongly interested in signing him.
The Lowdown: Gers eye Doekhi
The Light Blues have been heavily linked with a move for the Dutch centre-back (Glasgow Live), who currently plays for Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie.
However, the 55-time Scottish champions have not yet made a concrete move for the defender.
The Latest: Doekhi discusses future
Speaking to De Gelderlander (via The Daily Record), the 23-year-old revealed that he would be interested in a move to Ibrox.
When asked about the Rangers speculation, he said: “I can’t do anything with it now. All my business runs through my manager, but if something is serious, I will seriously think about it.”
The Verdict: Come-and-get-me plea
This feels like a come-and-get-me plea of sorts. Of course, £2.7m-valued Doekhi (Transfermarkt) cannot fully say that he wants to join Rangers – he must keep things cordial with his current club for now – but his admission that he would be interested in a move to Ibrox has given the Gers hope.
Would you like to sign Danilho Doekhi?
It is now up to Ross Wilson and co to offer a deal which suits both the player and Vitesse. Doekhi missed just two league matches last term (Transfermarkt), so he is very much an important member of his team’s squad. If the Gers were to sign him, Gerrard would be hoping he could hold down a similarly consistent presence in the Scottish champions’ first XI.
In other news, many Rangers fans were livid over this picture from Wembley.
