Daniel Bachmann signing would be bad news for Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham

Daniel Bachmann has been linked with Rangers.

According to recent reports, Rangers could be in the hunt for a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window.

Daniel Bachmann has told Austrian media outlet LAOLA1 that Rangers have contacted his agent about a potential summer move.

Bachmann currently plays for Premier League side Watford, although he is on loan at Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock.

 

Rangers want to sign the 24-year-old in the summer to compete with current first-choice Allan McGregor, who will be entering the final year of his contract.

But Rangers’ interest in Bachmann is bad news for Wes Foderingham. It suggests that Steven Gerrard does not see Foderingham as McGregor’s long-term successor.

The 28-year-old has been limited to six appearances this season and could be on his way out of Ibrox in the summer if Bachmann joins.

At this stage of his career, the Englishman needs to be playing games and a move back down south might be tempting.

McGregor turns 38 next season and it could be his last before retirement. Before the Bachmann links, Foderingham might have been tempted to stay and take McGregor’s place for the long-term future.

But if Rangers sign Bachmann or another goalkeeper to push Foderingham further down the pecking order, then he needs to seek a summer exit.
