According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are lining up a summer move for Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans, having sent Jonatan Johansson to watch him on Monday.

The Gers will be in the market for new signings this summer as Pedro Caixinha looks to mould his own squad at Ibrox, with European qualification set to help the club attract new signings.

With Jon Toral and Emerson Hyndman only on loan from Arsenal and Bournemouth respectively, Caixinha may be hoping to bring a new midfielder to Ibrox – and new reports suggest that a target has been identified.

The Scottish Sun report that Rangers are keen to sign Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans, with Caixinha's new coach Jonatan Johansson allegedly sent to watch him in action against Preston North End on Monday.

Dorrans scored the opening goal in a 3-1 win for the Canaries, but it's claimed that Norwich are set to let Dorrans go at the end of the season, sparking interest from Rangers.

The report notes that Dorrans, 29, is a boyhood Rangers fans, and Caixinha may now be willing to offer him a dream move to Ibrox this summer, though it's unclear just how much the Gers would have to fork out given that the midfielder is under contract until 2019.

A Scotland international with 12 caps to his name, Dorrans has played 20 times in the Championship this season, and he has registered six goals and one assist for Norwich.

The former Livingston and West Bromwich Albion man has real quality on the ball, and whilst he's approaching 30, he is the calibre of player that Rangers need in order to close the gap to Celtic at the summit of Scottish football.
