Germany international Holtby’s contract expires in the summer and is on the lookout for a new club.
He has experience of British football, too.
Tottenham brought him to the Premier League from Schalke, in 2013. He turned out 25 times for them in the top flight either side of a loan spell at Fulham.
Should Rangers really bring in another midfielder?
Steven Gerrard has established quite a fleet of central midfielders at the club.
Therefore, competition for places is already stiff.
However, what’s still lacking is that creative edge that will help unlock defences.
The diminutive £2.25m valued Holtby is that kind of player.
It’s also a little disconcerting that Hamburg have allowed his contract to run down.
However, at 28, he’s far from an over the hill veteran. You don’t get a number of Germany caps without some serious talent, either.
Available on a free transfer, this could be the break and creative spark the Gers were looking for.
