Rangers would massively boost their defence by signing this 24-year-old PL shot-stopper – Here is why

Rangers Opinion – Rangers want Daniel Bachmann – Good Move?

According to a report in Football Scotland, Rangers are signing Kilmarnock goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann in the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old himself confirmed that the Ibrox-based side have contacted over a potential transfer in the next transfer window.

Bachmann, who is on loan at Kilmarnock from Watford, is under contract at Vicarage Road until the summer of 2020.

As per the report, his performances in Scotland has attracted interest from some of the Bundesliga clubs as well, namely – VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96. (h/t Football Scotland)

Here’s why Rangers should approach and sign Daniel Bachmann in the summer window:

Rangers require a long-term solution to the goalkeeping issue

Currently, Steven Gerrard’s men have Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham as the two options for keeping goal.

If we elaborate on those choices, the former is now 37 years old and his contract expires at the end of this season. While the latter hasn’t really done well when the opportunity is presented to him and his contract expires at the end of next season.

Hence, it makes sense if the Gers sign Daniel Bachmann in the next transfer window. The Austrian U21 international has impressed for Kilmarnock this season.

His height (6ft 3 in) allows him to have a better reach to make saves and cover most portion of the goal. The 24-year-old’s reflex action from close-quarters have been impressive, to say the least.

Furthermore, his kicking accuracy is pretty decent. He is a dominant keeper, who loves to claim crosses and command his own six-yard box.

All in all, it makes sense for Rangers to make an attempt to sign a goalkeeper who has impressed in the Scottish League. Furthermore, they need a keeper who can be in goal for many seasons to come. That will bring stability to the team.

Having rejected a £26m deal in January, it’s time for Everton to offload this 29-year-old star – Agreed?

West Ham signing this €20m-rated ace would provide the ideal replacement for outbound Declan Rice – Agreed?
