Feyenoord’s opening bid for centre-back Gernot Trauner has been rejected by LASK Linz.

Feyenoord have set their sights on the 29-year-old Austrian as they look for a new central defender to partner Marcos Senesi.

However, the Rotterdam side will have to up their offer with their first bid, believed to be just over €1 million, rejected by the Austrians.

Speaking on Sunday, LASK Linz head coach Dominik Thalhammer told Ligaportal, “Their offer is not even close to what we want for him. I think the coming days will show which direction it will go.”

Trauner has a contract with LASK Linz until 2024.
