Rangers receive Danilho Doekhi boost amid PSV interest

Rangers have been given a boost in their pursuit of Danilho Doekhi as PSV are reportedly looking to sign a foreign player on loan until the end of the season according to the Dutch outlet ED.

That would rule out a move for Doekhi as he currently plays in the Eredivisie for Vitesse and would not be considered for a loan deal to division rivals.

The Dutch giants are currently in a title race with rivals Ajax and are looking to strengthen their squad for the second half of the season.

It means Rangers are in pole position to secure the 23-year-old’s signature, with the players’ current contract expiring at the end of the season a pre-contract deal could be sorted out this month.

The Ibrox side are looking to add more defenders to strengthen the backline, with a deal to sign John Souttar already agreed, Doekhi could be next.

There was also interest from Serie A, with Napoli [ScottishSun] and the Atalanta [MetropolitanMagazine] related to Dutch.

Napoli recently signed Man Utd defender Axel Tuanzebe on loan until the end of the season which has further boosted Gers’ hopes of securing a deal for Doekhi.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst has already made two signings so far in the January transfer window as he looks to further strengthen his squad as the team look to achieve success on three fronts.

Signing the captain of Vitesse would signal a new intention that van Bronckhorst is serious. Although a move during this window could be ruled out as the Dutch side demand a £2m fee to secure the player now instead of in the summer.

Even though the team received a record sum from Everton for Nathan Patterson, that kind of money could be spent elsewhere.
