The Daily Mail understands that Norwich City are only willing to accept a bid of £1.5million for midfielder Graham Dorrans. Ladbrokes Premiership side Rangers have made a £1million offer for the boyhood Gers supporter and will need to increase this should they want him.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha is looking to stamp his own authority on his Ibrox squad during his first off-season in charge. Ryan Jack and Bruno Alves have already joined the Caixinha revolution, but 30-year-old Dorrans remains firmly on the wanted list as well.

Canaries manager Daniel Farke has yet to add to his squad since taking over at the Sky Bet Championship club. He’ll want to know quickly if Dorrans will be in his plans for the upcoming season or not. The Scotland international struggled with injuries initially last season, before going on to make 24 appearances in total for the club, who failed to make the play-offs.

Dorrans only signed a three-year deal at Carrow Road last summer but it remains to be seen if he’ll even serve half of that time period. It is believed that Dorrans would welcome a return to Scotland, especially if Rangers did increase their bid to an acceptable offer. Mexican Carlos Pena is set to join Rangers soon too, and would likely provide competition for Dorrans in the midfield area should he sign.

Dorrans had a successful loan spell at Norwich in 2015, which was eventually turned permanent later in the same year. Prior to this he made his name in Scotland with Livingston before West Bromwich Albion came calling. He played well over 150 times for the Baggies between 2008 and 2015, and has been with Norwich for a few seasons now.
