After completing a trial, Hertha signed Jonathan Klinsmann in 2017 and handed him a two-year contract.

The United States U23 goalkeeper did not feature in the Bundesliga this season and was forced to settle for a place with the German club’s reserve team. This term, he made 14 appearances in Regionalliga Nordost.

According to Bild, Rangers scouts were in attendance to watch the goalkeeper in action for Hertha BSC II against Lok Leipzig, where he conceded two goals in his side’s 2-0 defeat.

The German outlet does not specify how interested Steven Gerrard’s side are in the 22-year-old, whose contract with his current employer will run down after the end of this season, just that they’re ‘watching’ him.

Klinsmann has already confirmed he will leave Hertha, but declined to provide more details as to where he will be playing next season.

“I have learned a lot in the two years, now I want to reach the next level. Unfortunately, that was not possible with Hertha,” Bild quote the stopper as saying.

With the player being available on a free transfer, Rangers just have to convince Klinsmann, if they decide to secure his services.
