Dundee United’s Jeando Fuchs has revealed that he’s been approached by Rangers over a possible transfer.
Fuchs joined United from La Liga club Alaves in October 2020 and has gone on to make 45 appearances to date.
He’s virtually been an ever-present in the line-up this season and boasts averages of 2.3 tackles, two interceptions and 1.4 accurate long balls per 90 minutes – the former of which is more than any Rangers player.
His manager Tam Courts accepts that interest is inevitable given that Fuchs is a ‘top player, not just for us but in this league’ (via The Courier).
In an interview with Foot Mercato, Fuchs was asked if he’d been the subject of any ‘concrete’ interest.
He replied that ‘there have been contacts from Rangers’ as well as their arch-rivals Celtic, ‘but nothing more’.
The 24-year-old also revealed that there was interest from three EFL teams (Blackpool, Peterborough United and Wigan Athletic), an unnamed Premier League side and Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart.
The verdict: Gerrard plot to inadvertently sink Gers?
One particular name stands out from that lengthy list of interested parties – Stuttgart.
That’s because Steven Gerrard, the former Rangers manager, reportedly has his eyes on their incumbent left-back Borna Sosa.
If Gerrard is successful in efforts to bring Sosa to Villa Park, Stuttgart could in theory move for the £720,000-rated Fuchs as his replacement.
Perhaps when Rangers face Dundee United in less than a fortnight’s time, Giovanni van Bronckhorst will seek to pull Fuchs aside and win him over, but the sheer amount of teams interested in his services could make this a difficult one for the new Gers boss to pull off.
