The international break offers Steven Gerrard a chance to identify potential summer transfer targets.
He’s sure to have been watching Northern Ireland vs Estonia on Thursday night, in order to monitor Kyle Lafferty, Steven Davis, and Jordan Jones.
However, one of their international teammates should also have caught the eye.
The 27-year-old put in a predictably strong showing for his country.
Naturally a right winger, he’s now regularly deployed at right-back when on international duty.
Added to his dependability, that flexibility is another trait which makes him worthy of attention.
Dallas has now accumulated 37 caps for his country, chipping in with three goals.
However, he recently
spoke out about the frustrations of being deprived of game time by Marcelo Bielsa, at Leeds United.
He has made 22 appearances for his club this season but has recently featured almost exclusively from the bench.
Factor in the fact that he’s seemingly a Rangers fan, and the stars may be aligning.
He’s valued at £1.80 million (Transfermarkt) but with just a year left on his current deal, Leeds aren’t really in a position to haggle.
Rangers are desperately short of naturally right-sided options. There are plenty of right-footed wingers, including Ryan Kent and Ibrox-bound Jordan Jones. Yet, most of those guys prefer to operate on the left flank.
Therefore, Daniel Candeias has made a whopping 45 appearances this season.
Gerrard needs other options on that side and Dallas would be a quality, experienced fix.
