Scottish giants Rangers are set to launch a £1 million bid for Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough target Graham Dorrans, according to The Daily Express.
The 30-year-old Norwich City midfielder scored six goals and laid on one assist for the Canaries in the Championship last season, helping the Norfolk-based club to an eighth place finish, albeit ten points adrift of the play-off places.
The Scotland international moved to Carrow Road on a permanent deal back in 2015 after enjoying a loan spell at the club earlier that year, but it appears that his time at Norwich could be coming to an end this summer amid interest from north and south of the border.
In fact, recent reports suggest that Rangers are set to improve their bid to £1 million, having seen an initial offer of £700,000 rejected by the Championship outfit.
New Gers boss Pedro Caixinha will be considering how his side can reduce the 39-point gap to Old Firm rivals Celtic next season, and clearly sees Dorrans as a player who could make a difference at Ibrox.
And this latest bid is set to damage the hopes of Carlos Carvalhal’s Sheffield Wednesday and managerless Middlesbrough, both of whom are reportedly hoping to land the 30-year-old and keep him in the Championship next term.
And given Dorrans’ decent record in the second tier with both Norwich and West Brom, he is certainly a player many teams would benefit from having in their squads, but whether the Championship duo can fend off Rangers very much remains to be seen.
