Rangers are plotting an approach for Norwich City defender Timm Klose this summer as Steven Gerrard looks to strengthen his centre-back options ahead of next season, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (28/4; page 59).
The Gers look set to lose Joe Worrall at the end of his loan spell, while Gareth McAuley is surely facing an uphill battle trying to earn a new deal having barely featured since arriving at Ibrox.
Klose joined the Canaries in 2016 and has made well over 100 league appearances for the club, including 31 appearances this season as Daniel Farke's men sealed promotion to the Premier League and go into the final day of the campaign in pole position to seal the Championship title.
The Sun on Sunday suggests that Norwich want to keep Klose, and he is open to staying put. But Gerrard wants to speak to the Switzerland international, so it will be interesting to see whether he can convince the 30-year-old to make the switch.
Gerrard appears to have been vindicated by going back to the partnership of Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson in recent weeks. But he will be aware that both men have struggled at various points during the season, and not adding another experienced option would be a real gamble.
Klose would certainly tick the box for experience, and he would also arrive on a free transfer if he did join the Gers, leaving the Light Blues boss with most of his funds to strengthen other areas of the squad.
