Glasgow Rangers are reportedly now in a ‘strong position’ to sign Danilho Doekhi in the January transfer window.
The Lowdown: Souttar in
It has now been confirmed that John Souttar has signed a pre-contract agreement with the Ibrox faithful from Hearts, and he may even be able to play from this month if a further agreement can be made.
A few central defenders for the Teddy Bears are facing uncertain futures, and so bringing in a new centre-back was vital.
The Latest: Doekhi next?
As per The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell, the Light Blues are now in a ‘strong position’ to sign Doekhi, after confirming Souttar’s signing.
The Dutchman is also a player whose contract is up in the summer, and so he could also be very attainable this month.
The Verdict: No-brainer
Assuming both Goldson and Balogun leave, it would be a no-brainer to sign Doekhi up alongside Souttar.
He has been described as having ‘all the ingredients’ for a good centre-half by Dutch football agent Freddy van der Hoorn, as he is ‘aggressive’ being six-foot-three, but also ‘very comfortable’ on the ball as well (Rangers Review).
Should Rangers sign Doekhi?
Doekhi has also hinted himself that he would like the move, claiming that he is ‘flattered’ by the Gers’ interest, and that they are a ‘very beautiful’ club (de Gelderlander).
Nonetheless, to play under Dutch legend Giovanni van Bronckhorst could well be a match made in heaven.
